Recomendo dois livros de bolso que li nesse fim de semana — Pocket Guides da Five Simple Steps. Um é mais especifico pra quem é designer (Combining…), outro é pra qualquer um que deseje melhorar a comunicação através de textos.
This pocket guide will give you a framework for efficient practice, lead you to founts of knowledge and help you judge the work you see, including your own work. It will encourage you to be selective, patient and reasonable, focusing on web contexts and your design goals.
Look carefully and you’ll notice that many of the most successful designs are built around words. Apple tantalises us with the ability to hold “1,000 songs in your pocket”. MailChimp has created a wonderfully engaging brand, heavily focused around language.
