Making the most important but intimidating writings about design accessible to all designers.

“Books for Smart Designers” is a series that selects the absolute most important texts about design in non-design subjects, and then presents them in a way that is both friendly and accessible for a designer to understand. It provides the best and most relevant works to read, but it simultaneously decodes it as well. The books define all the big words, look up all the important terms, and provide a summary of each point.
