Read full description of the books:
Mike Monteiro is someone I have repeatedly followed and unfollowed on Twitter over the last few years. His occasional clever wit and insight is largely eclipsed by his brash and arrogant stream-of-consciousness. He picks fights, makes fun of people, and is probably one of the design field's most notorious smug assholes.
Yet, somehow, in Design is a Job his grouchiness melts away. His arrogance becomes helpful confidence. His gripes transform into wisdom learned the hard way. Foul-mouthed cursing becomes — well, slightly less foul-mouthed cursing.
In a departure from his somewhat irritating guise on the web, this long-form version of Mike Monteiro is tack-sharp and full of genuinely smart and thought-provoking advice on being a designer. The book feels very blue-collar and non-academic, covering hard lessons he's learned over the years like getting clients, protecting yourself legally, believing in your work, collaborating with peers or clients, or directing other designers. It's also as funny as it is practical.
In Design Is A Job I recognized hard lessons I've learned so far in my career, and got plenty of advice for navigating new challenges ahead. Recommended.

Read information about the authorSome say the clothes make the man. Others say it’s opinions. Co-founder of Mule, Mike likes to have a bet both ways. His 2012 book, Design is a Job, was a love letter to hard work, self-awareness, and the importance of a good tailor.
Mike cultivates his reputation around being serious about design, human rights, a damn fine joke, and the Phillies. His philosophy of supportive antagonism helps Mule create great internal and external projects. He has given talks about the responsibility of designers in client relationships at conferences such as CreativeMornings, TYPO, and An Event Apart.
Mike received his BA in Fine Art from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University, and his MFA in Graphic Design from University of Texas, Austin.
