Welcome to my design books list! 👋

My name is Luis Hermosilla and I'm a Lead Designer based in London.

If you are checking this page means that you, like me, are curious to learn about design and want to check some books that are worth reading. You are in the right place, this page is a personal compilation of all those books that I've seen online or in stores and I've read or are on my wishlist because they have been recommended to me.

This is a work in progress and I will be updating the list with those books that I discover and are worth to be on it. If you have any recommendations please use the bottom section of this page to get in touch and make your suggestions. ✌️

Thank you and I hope you find it useful!
