If you have not noticed yet, with the recent redesign of our branding and website, we added a few new things such as our books page. Our team of editors have curated a selection of our favorite design books, from packaging design to structure, to typography, and branding.
On the top of the page, we will highlight our featured book, which is currently: How to Give Half of Your Work Away for Free, by Matthew Manos.
"How to Give Half of Your Work Away for Free is a book that aims to open-source the 50% pro-bono business model invented by Matthew Manos known as the 'double-half' methodology. The toolkit is broken into four primary sections that each aim to represent the inner-working of the model from drastically different perspectives. The origins of this business model reside in verynice, a global design and innovation consultancy that gives over half of its work away for free, but components of the methodology have now been leveraged by hundreds of service-providers across the globe who, together, are re-defining 'philanthropy.'"
“At verynice, pro-bono work isn’t something that employees do off the clock, with or without incentives. Rather, it’s just business as usual.” – Forbes Magazine
