Value-Based Design

Value-Based Design $50 + shipping

How do you justify the economic value of your design practice – and charge what you’re worth? With Value-Based Design, our newest book.

The definitive end to the “value debate” in the design industry, Value-Based Design has taught hundreds of designers how to focus on measurable results. The print book comes with an accompanying workbook, Applied Value-Based Design, that will teach you how to start practicing value-based design on today’s problems.

As DevBridge’s director of product design Chris Wilkinson said, Value-Based Design won’t make you a better designer: it’ll make you a better design professional.
