Summary

Publishers of contemporary highstreet magazines invest more and more money in developing innovative design for an increasingly designliterate reader. Innovation, however, must always be grounded in the underlying conventions of legibility to ensure loyal readership and economic success. Digital Magazine Design provides detailed descriptions of all the necessary rules of design, and uses these rules to cast a critical eye over a selection of contemporary highstreet magazines. Through an understanding of the relationship between text, image and design, and the ability to make informed judgements, the student is able to critically evaluate all publishable material.

    2018 Nautilus Book Awards Silver Winner 
    What if you could unlock a better answer to your most vexing problem—in your workplace, community, or home life—just by changing the question? 
    Talk to creative problem-solvers and they will often tell you, the key to their success is asking a different question. 
    Take Debbie Sterling, the social entrepreneur who created GoldieBlox. The idea came when a friend complained about too few women in engineering and Sterling wondered aloud: "why are all the great building toys made for boys?" Or consider Nobel laureate Richard Thaler, who asked: "would it change economic theory if we stopped pretending people were rational?" Or listen to Jeff Bezos whose relentless approach to problem solving has fueled Amazon’s exponential growth: “Getting the right question is key to getting the right answer.”   
    Great questions like these have a catalytic quality—that is, they dissolve barriers to creative thinking and channel the pursuit of solutions into new, accelerated pathways. Often, the moment they are voiced, they have the paradoxical effect of being utterly surprising yet instantly obvious. 
    For innovation and leadership guru Hal Gregersen, the power of questions has always been clear—but it took some years for the follow-on question to hit him: If so much depends on fresh questions, shouldn’t we know more about how to arrive at them? That sent him on a research quest ultimately including over two hundred interviews with creative thinkers. Questions Are the Answer delivers the insights Gregersen gained about the conditions that give rise to catalytic questions—and breakthrough insights—and how anyone can create them.

    In the spirit of Jocko Willink's Extreme Ownership and Chris Voss' Never Split the Difference comes the most empowering sales tool yet: a practical guide on how to use proven spy techniques to bolster your business strategies.  
    Even if you’ve never seen a James Bond film or never met a real-life CIA agent, you should know that spies are geniuses at surviving covertly. Their ability to communicate in code is practically written into their DNA. And while it’s true that spies receive some of the best survival training in the world, there’s another, more critical skill a spy must have to survive… business savvy.  
    In Agent of Influence, bestselling author Jason Hanson, a former CIA special agent and founder of Spy Escape School, reveals how anyone can use spy tactics for increased success, from learning how to strategically plan your day to mastering the steps you’ll need to embrace challenges and set achievable, personal goals. He teaches you how to develop a winning sales personality and target the perfect business opportunity using the SADR cycle—”spotting,” “assessing,” “developing,” and “recruiting.” With this invaluable and unique handbook, you will become a more productive, confidant professional or entrepreneur. 
    Discover how to use proven spy techniques to bolster your business strategies—from self-advocation to selling to interviewing—and ultimately make more money. In our evolving age of entrepreneurships, corporate careers, and self-run businesses, Jason’s message will appeal to those looking for a competitive leg up, and who entrust the insider secrets of spy practice to take them there.

    You’re too close to your business, and it’s killing your creativity
    		 
    Traditional business structures love stability and predictability. Yet many organizations believe the two essential ingredients for long-term success are creativity and innovation. Kiirsten May and Alex Varricchio, founders of the marketing agency UpHouse, call the relationship between these two opposing expectations the Proximity Paradox™ — the belief that those who are closest to a subject are best-qualified to innovate for it, when, in reality, intense proximity limits creativity. Instead, people need to create distance from challenges in order to see the best way forward. May and Varricchio believe that until we can separate innovation and execution within ourselves, we will only innovate to the level at which we can execute the idea. To be effective, we need to create distance between our innovation brain and our execution brain.
    		 
    Unpacking ten common Proximity Paradoxes that affect a company’s people, processes, and industry, the authors share some practical ideas to create the distance necessary for your next great idea. An especially valuable book for creatives, and non-creatives in creative industries, but equally applicable to all businesses that depend on innovation, The Proximity Paradox encourages us to ask hard questions about how we work, how our businesses are structured, and why we routinely find our creativity at odds with what’s asked of us as executors and stewards of the bottom line.
