On Design provides insights into the fundamentals of any graphic design career. From essential principles, such as color theory and designing efficiently, to bolder challenges, such as dealing with bad clients and working courageously, author and designer Justin Negard touches upon vital topics for every designer to consider. At the heart of his message is for all designers to be deliberate and bold, to not allow themselves to ever be disrespected or unfulfilled, and to always be pushing towards doing great work before anything else.
