"Victore believes that normalcy is barbed wire to the human spirit. And questions are the wire cutters. This book is a subversive tool for consciousness raising from a curmudgeonly mystic who doesn't give a shit what anyone thinks, but who is passionately in love with the world."

From the Foreword by Danielle LaPorte


Feck Perfuction is a call

for your best work.

Renowned designer and professional hell-raiser James Victore wants to drag you off your couch and throw you headfirst into a life of bold creativity. He'll guide you through all the twists, trials, and triumphs of starting your creative career, from finding your voice to picking the right moment to start a project (hint: It's now). Bring your biggest, craziest, most revolutionary ideas, and he will give you the kick in the pants you need to make them real. No matter what industry or medium you work in, this book will help you live, work, and create freely and fearlessly.

Praise for Feck Perfuction

Over the past decade, James has served as a constant reminder for me to have the courage and the audacity to be my weird self. Feck Perfuction is a beautiful case study into why so many of us have found our life’s work when we are our most authentic and when we get comfortable with being our most uncomfortable. Ignore this book at your peril.

Harley Finkelstein COO of Shopify

In James Victore’s new book, he unequivocally proves why he is the master he is. In every chapter, he challenges and inspires the reader to reach for more, to try harder and to create our best selves. It is a magnificent and momentous experience. (All true)


Debbie Millman  Host of Design Matters

James Victore got famous creating tough posters that shook me to the core. He now does the same using the written word. To you.  

Stefan Sagmeister Designer
