THE CHECKLIST MANIFESTO For Print


ABOUT The Checklist Manifesto is an accumulation of tips and advice I have gained since becoming a Graphics student through experience and from other practitioners. It is a set of ideals and principles I aim to live by to ensure creating the best work possible. It is something which I also hope to keep producing as I continue to learn. This particular book focuses on things to do before sending to print. THE CHECKLIST MANIFESTO
