A related poll question says 41.2 develop their own and 29.70 get help
from graphic designers. My view is that writers must develop graphic
content (where appropriate). If a writer can't learn/use something
like Visio he/she should at least be able to visualize a sketch that a
graphic artist can finish up. Otherwise the writer is not
communicating fully with the audience.

A writer should know how to convey information - some information is
suited for prose, some for tables and lists and some is best presented
graphically.

Is a writer who cannot develop graphic content lacking an essential
skill?
