New York-based Craig Ward is an award-winning designer (multiple times over), as well as a TED speaker, and he’s compiled his years of design knowledge into the upcoming book, Popular Lies About Graphic Design.

There are no hard and fast rules with design, although some people would like you to think that there are, so Ward has taken on the task of clearing up the misconceptions. If you’ve ever spent time doing graphic design, the topics will definitely register with you.

The book will offer you insight and perhaps, will make you think about design in a different way. It’s currently available for pre-order here.
