Ten Graphic Design Paradoxes

Another article by Adrian Shaughnessy which i think is worth reading.
Kinda like his thought because he is always being honest and constructive. He mentioned something in his recent article which i feel relevant to me:

"For designers, verbal skills are as important as visual skills."
Ideas usually fail not because they're bad ideas, but because they're badly presented."

Years ago i keep insists 'good design can always speak for themselves'.
But after awhile i realize that is not utterly true. Knowing how to present really helps a lot in selling an idea, and that is why some suck businessman-designers can win the business whilst some good otaku-designers cannot.

I'm completely suck in verbal skill and presentation. Damn it, although i'm not really enjoy talk cock about my design... but better be modest and keep learning.
