  1. There are no such thing as bad clients, only bad designers
  2. The best way to become a better graphic designer is to become a client
  3. If we want to educate our clients about design, we must first educate ourselves about our clients
  4. If we want to work and make money as graphic designers, we must focus on the design and not the money.
  5. For graphic designers, possessing verbal skills is as important as possessing good visual skills
  6. Most ideas fail, not because they are bad ideas, but because they are badly presented.
  7. Designers who use the argument “I know best because I am a professional” are usually unprofessional designers.
  8. 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.
  9. The best way to self-promote is to avoid talking about yourself.
  10. 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?
