As graphic designers, most of us rarely have enough free time to do other things other than our 9-5 graphic design jobs or our freelance projects. And if given the chance of this rare luxury called free time, most of us just spend it online looking and researching for new design trends. This lead me to the question -- do graphic designers nowadays still read books? If so, are these books still related to graphic design or do you choose some fiction novels not related to work?
I've always believed in the power of reading and how every page brings us to unexplored parts of ourselves and of the world, so I'll leave you with these words by A.C. Grayling.
“To read is to fly: it is to soar to a point of vantage which gives a view over wide terrains of history, human variety, ideas, shared experience and the fruits of many inquiries.”
i think yes.. .. even though most designers found themselves viewing tutorials or having been hooked to any art related articles or books.. if not then, you can find them in the internet playing or looking for creative pictures in relate to graphic designs. :D
We dont read books , but we are still skillful. All about interest and practice.
