Have you been wondering if you should hire a graphic designer? Have you been wondering if you can afford it?
When you’re starting out with your business, you can save some headaches by hiring a graphic designer from the beginning.
Graphic Designers save you time
How much is your time worth? You probably don’t have time to learn a new skill. A professional knows the software and gets it finished in a timely manner. They understand typography and colour theory. Knowing Photoshop does not make you a designer and your time is better spent taking care of your business.
Graphic Designers save you money
All the proper software that a designer owns is pretty pricey and usually isn’t practical for one-time use. Professional work gets noticed both online and offline. Bad design is very costly in the end. If your logos are designed in the wrong program, they might be low resolution and in the wrong colour format. Printers will charge extra to fix these problem files if they are sent to them. Hiring a graphic designer will make you sidestep these issues. A graphic designer doesn’t have to be on your payroll, they can freelance.
Graphic Designers gets your brand seen
A professional designer knows how to keep your brand consistent across all platforms. If you have brand guidelines, your designer knows how to follow them. When your demographic can recognize you from your competition, it’s like money in the bank. Their experience and education will help your business be more authentic with your customers.
Graphic Designers give your business a professional edge
If you have a professional logo, stationery, business cards and website, you will make a great first impression. These impressions are made on clients, vendors and employees. When your presentation matches your brand it might make all the difference in winning that sales pitch. It’s the small things that give your business that edge.
Graphic Designers give good advice
A good designer can recommend different methods to save money on printing and other services. It’s always good to be upfront about your budget. Designers understand how to work around a budget. We are also creative people with some fresh ideas.
