Swedish graphic designer Tobias Bergdahl has created these easy-to-digest visuals that outline the 12 Paradoxes of Graphic Design by revered graphic designer Adrian Shaughnessy.

The advice given in these mantra-esque graphics will hit home with anyone working in the creative design profession. Pieces of advice include, "There's no such thing as bad clients, only bad designers" and "If we want to make money as a graphic designer, we must focus on the work, not the money."

These slick graphics offer sage words of advice and encouragement for any budding graphic designer or for those already working in the field. The abiding messages from these quotes expresses the idea that designers should work hard and strive to know their clients inside and out.
