13 Ways Designers Screw Up Client Presentations

The hardest part of design is presenting work. You can?t even argue about this. I?ve seen people who did amazing work get up in front of a client and lay eggs. I?ve also seen people do alright work and work clients around their little finger. Optimally, you want to do good work and present it well. But I?d rather have a good designer who can present well than a great designer who can?t. In fact, I?d argue whether it?s possible to be a good designer if you can?t present your work to a client. Work that can?t be sold is as useless as the designer who can?t sell it.
