Dieser Klassiker beschreibt die fundamentalen Prinzipien, um Dinge des täglichen Gebrauchs umzuwandeln in unterhaltsame und zufriedenstellende Produkte.

Zum Autor Don Norman ist emeritierter Professor für Kognitionswissenschaften. Er lehrte an der University of California in San Diego und der Northwest University in Illinois.

Wenn Liebe die Zeit besiegt. Keiner lehrt Geschichte so lebendig wie er ? und das hat einen guten Grund: Tom Hazard, Geschichtslehrer und verschrobener Einzelgänger, sieht aus wie 40, ist aber in Wirklichkeit über 400 Jahre alt. Er hat die Elisabethanische Ära in England, die Expeditionen von Captain Cook in der Südsee, die Literaten und Jazzmusiker der Roaring Twenties in Paris erlebt und alle acht Jahre eine neue Identität angenommen. Eines war er über die Jahrhunderte hinweg immer: einsam. Denn die Nähe zu anderen Menschen wäre höchst gefährlich gewesen. Jetzt aber tritt Camille in sein Leben. Und damit verändert sich alles.

“A ‘must read’ for the creative person who wants to implement their creative power to obtain lasting financial abundance, freedom and independence” (Linda Mackenzie, founder, HealthyLife.net-All Positive Talk Radio). The Affluent Artist invites artists from all walks of life to throw out the stereotypes about art and money and allow financial abundance into their lives. Whether you’ve been learning to train dolphins for SeaWorld, working as a Broadway dancer or as an Imagineer for Disney, chances are you’ve been learning about the craft, not about personal finance. This book offers business and financial planning wisdom to creative individuals who find themselves in the roles of the Starving Artist, the Corporate Artist, the Self Employed Artist and the Affluent Artist. The book includes stories and interviews with artists in each of these roles as well as Financial Stuff You Just Gotta Know, a humorous and necessary primer on financial terms and situations, as well as a how-to on avoiding financial pitfalls, and a business fable based on Rick DiBiasio’s years of experience helping artists find their financial footing. “Most people don’t believe they can live their passion and make a lot of money at the same time. Not only does Rick’s book debunk that myth, he teaches you HOW to do it. If you want to make a lot of money doing what you love to do, GET THIS BOOK and read it cover to cover so you can LIVE YOUR LIFE OUT LOUD.” —Sean Smith, Master Results coach

How to Prosper as an Interior Designer It has been fifteen years since Robert L. Alderman, Esq., wrote his classic, How to Make More Money at Interior Design—the book that helped a generation of designers to manage successful practices. Since then, the profession has been subjected to momentous changes. Designers have persevered through the boom and bust of the eighties, the upsurge of the nineties, the emergence of "e;mega firms,"e; and greater specialization within the field. Robert Alderman’s new book, How to Prosper as an Interior Designer, provides detailed guidance for all designers seeking to succeed in today’s competitive environment. It will help educate newcomers, reassure seasoned professionals, and equip a tough new breed of designer-entrepreneurs to thrive under any market conditions. Drawing upon his legal and financial experience as an attorney and financial adviser in the interior design field, Robert Alderman offers advice on many crucial legal and business issues to those who operate commercial or residential practices. He helps design professionals make informed decisions about proposals and contracts, letters of agreement, charging clients, budgeting, financial management, working with architects and contractors, legal liability, purchases and deliveries, and more. Employing similar techniques from his previous bestseller, Mr. Alderman uses real-life case studies to show designers how to cope with their daily problems of cost overruns, contract disputes, fraudulent contractors, and difficult clients. These practical case studies show firsthand how other designers react when a crisis occurs—an invaluable source of learning by example.

The essential guide to decision making and problem solving for the interior designer The interior design profession requires effective problem solving and critical thinking, as they impact all phases of the design project and most work activities of the interior designer. Whether you are a student or professional designer, much of what you do involves these skills. Although most of us do not even think about what we do in terms of these activities, they are a constant part of design. They are also skills that must be performed successfully outside a professional career. Improving these skills makes you a more sought-after employee and designer, effective business owner, and fulfilled individual. Problem Solving and Critical Thinking for Designers will put the reader on the correct path to a solutions-oriented practice. Using her trademark accessible and conversational approach, Christine Piotrowski guides readers through the process of how the working designer solves problems and makes decisions. Some of the topics she discusses are: Design process Communication Asking questions Problem definition and analysis Decision-making process Negotiation Working with others Ethical decision making This book also features real-life scenarios and design problems that guide the reader toward making correct decisions in real-life situations.

Ruth Lynford, President of Lynford Limited in New York, is inspired by design. After graduating in architecture from Washington University in St. Louis in 1946, Ruth set out for Manhattan with her first husband, Franklyn. She joined a leading architectural firm but quickly encountered prejudice as a woman in a male profession. Ruth then broke stride and stepped into interior design, which was then in its infancy. This is the story of a trailblazer, who dared to be different. Through images and personal reflections, this book invites its audience to experience Ruth Lynford's lively coming of age as a person and a professional. Her ongoing journey is one of grit and glamour. From her childhood in South St. Louis on Bamberger Avenue, to her adult life on Fifth Avenue in New York, readers will see her imagination, talent and charisma emerge. Differing from other books about architects and designers, this narrative reveals the interior life of an interior designer.
