Finally we give away a new must-own title for every creative mind. Our friends from Thames & Hudson are kind enough to offer you a copy of The Advertising Concept Book, hands down the best advertising & inspiration book I have ever read! Read on and enter the giveaway.
The Author – Pete Barry
Pete Barry is a prolific author, art director and teacher (that’s why the book is a complete advertising guide, not a coffee table book). He began his advertising career as an art director at Ogilvy, London, works as a copywriter in New York since 2000 and teaches Advertising Design at Syracuse University (you lucky students!)
The Publisher – Thames & Hudson
Thames & Hudson is one of the worldâ€™s leading publishers of illustrated books on art, architecture, design and visual culture. So this is one of our favorite publishers ever, with tons of books published over the last 60 years on our ‘must read’ list. Every designer should own at least a few titles from Thames & Hudson, not to impress his friends with some coffee table books, but to get inspired and learn new techniques from the most creative minds in the world.
Long story short, The Advertising Concept Book is an invaluable resource for students, teachers and creative professionals in design, illustration, copywriting and advertising. As I said earlier, it’s not the average inspiration book, with lovely graphics and some caption text. Au contraire! It’s a must read theory book, an Advertising Bible, a manual for creative souls, filled with tons of insights, enlightening explanations and nearly 400 award winning visuals reduced to their essence – concept drawings made by Barry himself. I guarantee you’ll love this book and read it from cover to cover with maximum interest. This is also the perfect gift idea for any design enthusiast and at just $19.99 on Amazon is a steal!

Today’s winner is picked by Mr. Pete Barry himself and his name is… Peter V – I really wanted to have this book but when i went to the shop to buy it someone took the last one just before me and now i have to wait two months before they get new ones. I had a look at the most of the books about graphic design and â€œthe Advertising Concept Bookâ€ really was the best one. Thanks!
