The Learn from Great Design Volume 1 eBook


The bad news is it won't be ready until early November but the good news is you can get three case studies for free, right now. Simply sign up and I will send it to you immediately. People subscribed to the email newsletter also get a 35% discount on the book when it's released.

The book will contain 20 LFGD case studies (I spend at least 5 hours on each one) but there will also be another version of the book with even more studies and at least 3 masterclasses, with even more in-depth studies of great design. One of them is the travel giant Airbnb.
