Taking the D.I.Y. revolution one step further, Design It Yourself is the indie entrepreneur's bible for how to design a wide variety of business basics, from press kits to wall graphics. Created by students and faculty at the Maryland Institute College of Art, the book also includes contributors with cred, like Todd St. John of HunterGatherer and the world's only "designcore" band Double Dagger. The tome's full of ideas that are as inspiring as they are practical solutions to common problems of freelancers and small business owners.
