Why are people so impressed by visual communication? I’m not complaining, don’t get me wrong, I crave the mad love I get when I use my funky diagrams to explain complex details of the projects I work on. And it doesn’t suck that visual thinking, something I’ve been working at my whole career, is suddenly sexy. I guess what’s bugging me a bit about the reckless enthusiasm for all things sketched is that not only is my stuff not THAT good, it’s also that people seem to go nuts for diagrams that are real crap, too.
I blame our old and mid brains.
