Design-It-Yourself is a new Ellen Lupton book to help plain folks like me avoid the unnecessary time and expense of working with skilled designers. I’m especially amused by how poorly written and badly laid out (Hello? Typography? Punctuation? Caps? Bullets?) the page is. Hey, wanna look like crap? Buy this book!
simple ideas on how you can “think like a designer”
clear and coherent explanations of design technologies, from silk-screening to web development
what materials you’ll need to get your job done
where to find and buy them
