Each week a designer or studio recommends four #booksfordesigners. These are an affordable mix of reference, design theory and practical guides that cover graphic design and related disciplines. Today’s collection was chosen by Donald Soutar, a designer at Edinburgh-based studio Touch. He joined the team soon after graduating from ECA and, over the last ten years, has developed an in-depth understanding of branding, a keen eye for consistency and detail in typography and language.
