A Familiar Space

We’ve all been there, feeling stuck & uninspired, yet expected to produce – so we just keep cranking away, spinning our wheels and looking for a solution by simply staring harder at the problem.  It’s a familiar space all artists, designers, photographers and any other professional in creative space can simply describe as the state of being ‘stuck’ – but best design books can totally help

As it turns out, even the most creative people sometimes need a little nudge of encouragement – as proven by these books. Here are seven books that have helped us combat creative frustration. They’re also some of the inspiration that lead us to us to create In/Visible Talks.
