I really enjoyed this gathering of community-based design case studies. Though I'm not a designer, as a community-based worker and artist, I found it to be a valuable resource and good for future reference.

Goodread for immature Graphic Designers, especially when dealing with conceptual design. It'll kick the process of ideation and formation. I'd suggest this for 1st graders on Graphic Design and/or Visual Communication.
