We’re fascinated by “Designer Logic” and pass this on as a matra to all our creatives at InterSeller. Designer Tobias Bergdahl created these “Paradoxes of Graphic Design” for our consideration.
- There are no such thing as bad clients, only bad designers
- The best way to become a better graphic designer is to become a client
- If we want to educate our clients about design, we must first educate ourselves about our clients
- If we want to work and make money as graphic designers, we must focus on the design and not the money.
- For graphic designers, possessing verbal skills is as important as possessing good visual skills
- Most ideas fail, not because they are bad ideas, but because they are badly presented.
- Designers who use the argument “I know best because I am a professional” are usually unprofessional designers.
- We often imagine that all good projects go to other people. Not so – in fact nearly all jobs start off as neither good nor bad.
- The best way to self-promote is to avoid talking about yourself.
- A designer’s brain is capable of much more than making things look pretty.
What do you think – will it make us better designers, or just better with our clients?
