Find inspiration in Radim Malinic’s Book of Ideas.
Compiled from years of experience of the diverse, exciting, complex, and engaging creative industry, Radim Malinic’s Book of Ideas is a compilation of everything he’s learned throughout his career. An inspiring read for new designers and seasoned professionals alike, Malinic shares advice on everything from productivity to facing your fears, from finding happiness in your work to conquering creative block. Malinic designed the original Webdesigner Depot site and he also designed our brand new logo. Originally from the Czech Republic, Malinic has been based in the UK for the last 16 years. He currently lives, and works in South West London under the name Brand Nu™:

Every chapter in this book is a memo from the diary I never had. It shows there’s been a shift in my thinking: I stopped talking over people and started listening. I wanted to better understand the questions. When I did, I realised I needed extra skills and knowledge to take me further in my career. It was time to learn in order to grow.

Book of Ideas is illustrated with some of Malinic’s most notable projects—his clients have ranged from WWF to USAID, Harry Potter to Dolby— this book is the product of his time starting out in the industry, and the decade since he decided to strike out alone and embrace freelancing. The work included has been selected to demonstrate a range of working methods, from complex corporate projects, to personal experimental processes. On show is his almost scientific, application of color, that creates a distinctive style. The projects show just what can be done with the right attitude, and by adopting a fearless approach. As well as key pieces of work from his career, the book also includes Malinic’s thoughts on numerous aspects of the industry, from choosing the right clients, to maintaining a rewarding career. If you’re looking for a daily source on inspiration to keep on your desk, Malinic’s vision of the design world might be just the ticket. Book of Ideas is available here, for $26 (approx). 681235469098128140
