In my professional life, I have worked with every conceivable type of client and collaborator, from those who were makers with the same or greater expertise as me, to clients who couldn’t glue two blocks of wood together if you put the blocks in their hands, covered with glue, and told them to clap.

Being able to communicate your ideas to clients and collaborators is one of the most important skills to possess as a maker, otherwise some of your projects may never get off the ground.
