Books: Make Your Own Luck

Kate Moross | Badass Lady Creatives

Graphic designer Kate Moross wrote a book I wish had been around when I was in design school, panicking about the future. Make Your Own Luck—coming March 31st, 2014—is Kate’s version of how-to-build-a-career-you-love. The book details:

how to thrive in art school, developing your own style, how to self-promote, collaboration with other artists, how to deal with “copycats,” and when to consider working for free. Kate Moross also touches on the fine points of music packaging and videos, how to find an agent…

I’m very curious as to how the content relates to the title. I can see two possible threads: how the moments that smell like luck often (though not always) can be traced back to our conscious decisions, or a manual on being scrappy as hell, despite the natural fear of risk.

Make Your Own Luck is sure to be an encouraging, hyper-color read; find preordering information on the official site, and check out more of Kate’s exuberant work on her personal site and studio portfolio.
