If you are an aspiring graphic designer, try some of these do them properly, record your workings in detail in a sketchbook (Your Lecturers and often your potential employers are often MUCH more interested in your process than the final product.) and you will end up with a worthy portfolio.
If you are a teacher of graphic design, each one of these projects is a gem and will save you time and angst in developing stuff from scratch. That not to say you have to copy; I use them more for inspiration (I teach design in a large SW college) but they will get the grey matter moving and to top it all the author has written a teacher's guide that you can find on his website. Brilliant and throughly recommended.
This book challenges you to create new things and allows your imagination to roam free rather than being stifled by a client who has their own ideas and boundaries. This is like playtime but taken seriously can help you expand your ideas and push your designs. Some ideas are a little similar to other 30 day challenges found across the web but there is enough here to keep you active.
It comes in a different chapters which are very helpful to generate new ideas.
I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to try something bit different from daily college/uni projects.
