Internationally recognised, Sydney-based graphic designer, Vince Frost, has announced that his new design-inspired lifestyle and self-help book, Design Your Life, will launch on October 22.
The 240-page consumer title, designed and authored by Frost, is published in Australia by Penguin’s Lantern imprint.
The executive creative director and CEO of independent creative company Frost*collective, has drawn on his personal life and a 25 year career as a design professional, to reveal a range of insights into how design principles can be utilised to improve every aspect of our lives.
“You don’t have to be a designer to design your life. But it doesn’t hurt to have some help” said Frost. “If my design process brings value to me, perhaps it can bring value to others. Or, more radically, bring others to recognise their own value”.
Design Your Life covers Frost’s 15 simple, but solid principles that can be used to make personal change for the better, as well as interviews with a range of experts, influencers and collaborators, including; OzHarvest’s Ronni Kahn; Professor Roy Green, Dean of the UTS Business School; trend forecaster and CEO of The Future Laboratory and LSNGlobal, Chris Sanderson; Editor of Wired magazine, Scott Dadich; hotelier and entrepreneur, Justin Hemmes; Australian Kiteboarding champion, Ewen Jaspen; productivity consultant, David Allen; and head of Workplace at Lend Lease, Natalie Slessor.
Frost believes Design Your Life has something to offer those who work in creative fields, as well as the wider public and will provide a clear and achievable guide to improving your life.
“This book will not solve your problems. You have to do that yourself. But this book will inspire you to work better at living better,” said Frost.
Design Your Life is the first consumer title penned by Frost, but his second published book. A 500 page tome, Frost* (sorry trees), was produced to accompany a retrospective of his graphic design work at the Sydney Opera House in 2006.
Frost has plans to expand the Design Your Life brand and will continue in his professional role as CEO and ECD of Frost*collective and it’s agencies, brand and communications specialists, Frost* Design, environmental design consultancy, Urbanite and digital agency, The Nest.
