Product description

Review

"James Martin is a rare breed - not only is he an incredibly talented designer, he's also equally skilled at explaining the how and the why behind his decisions, and teaching beginning designers how to think strategically as a foundational aspect of their work. James' work is a valuable resource for any designer looking to develop their skills, hone their craft, and communicate more effectively with clients."--Emily Mcdowell, creative director of Em & Friends

"James Martin is one of the world's top logo designers. I have been working in the creative industry for more than two decades. I have managed and employed hundreds of designers doing work for the biggest brands in the world. James has an elite level eye for detail and a creative spark that makes his work shine even compared to top talent worldwide. He has a rare gift and is, without a doubt, one of the most talented creatives I have seen in all my career."--
Michael Janda, best-selling author of Burn Your Portfolio

"...his personality shines throughout... James is eighty percent drawing, and that's what I like most about the book. James doesn't hold back on sharing his sketches. I'm positive that's what contributed to his huge Instagram appeal, too, because there's an insight you get from sketches that can't be seen in any other part of a design project."--
David Airey, LogoDesignLove.com

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is awesome. You won't be disappointed ;)
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 March 2022
So excited when this arrived!! As expected the book is beautifully presented, as soon as you open it your eyes are treated to a double page of MBJs very cool brand assets and logos and if you follow James on his socials then you'll recognise them instantly. I've followed him for a while now and always love coming across his posts if your not already following him go do it - your missing out.

So much insight, advice, process, ideas, passion and genuine honesty in this book - its full of golden nuggets and I'm only on chapter five and thoroughly enjoying it.

This book not only looks good but it feels good in your hands when your reading it. I'd highly recommend it to any level creative.
