The Design Profession
Business and Ethics Series
A Client's Guide to Design and other publications on issues relevant
to both designers and their clients. An excerpt to this series, Design
Brief and Budgeting and Managing the Process, gives time-saving guidance
to those who are in need of design services.
Institute of Graphic Artists
Professional affiliation that inspires and motivates good design.
The Guild is the artist/designer's advocate. Their book on Pricing & Ethical Guidelines (12th edition) still sets the standard for fair business practice. The Guild spearheaded the successful campaign to change California state tax law that unfairly singled out designers for many years. We owe them a debt of gratitude.
Resources and Tools for Special Circumstances
Design and Social Responsibility
These public stairways are a favorite place to walk—right in the middle of a dense urban setting you can feel you're out in the country. The work of Karen Kemp, a former business colleague, reflects the beauty of the Berkeley Paths.
Richmond Convention & Visitors Bureau
Richmond, California is home to Spokewise and to a beautiful community. There's plenty to enjoy in this town that boasts 32 miles of shoreline and a National Historical Park. This web site directs you to the best links in town. It was designed by friend and colleague, Nick Despota, at Lumina-Media.
