This section introduces a series of basic technical tools that are useful in order to make a living as a designer while preventing exhaustion.

By taking your time to familiarise yourself with some of these tools during your studies, you will be more conscious of how to deal with clients by the time you fully enter the world of work. The selection of tools in this section is not exhaustive and each tool can – and, indeed, should – be adapted to your way of working and the geographical location of your practice.
