Why You Should Hire a Graphic Designer
Why Every Small Business Should Outsource Their Graphic Design
If you were planning an extension to your home, would you draw up the blueprints yourself?
If the gearbox on your car blew, would you assume you have the skills (or time) to repair it yourself?
Of course not.
You’d bring in the right professionals to get the job done properly.
Designing marketing materials isn’t just about making things look presentable:
It’s about getting people to act, think, and feel differently about your company, its products, and its services.
And that means that first impressions count.
It’s much harder to recover from a poor design job than it is to get the best people working on it from the beginning.
So instead of trying your luck with a DIY approach to your marketing, get it right the first time by hiring a printing company that uses experienced, professional graphic designers.
Here are some of the most important reasons why using a designer-equipped printing company is the best choice for your business:
You’ll always get a better result
With so many powerful bits of graphic design software available to everyone, it can be tempting to think you can do a decent job of it yourself.
But until you’ve let a dedicated, specialised graphic designer work on your project, you might not realise what a huge difference it makes.
Unlike you or your employees, graphic designers don’t just dabble. They’re obsessed with every detail and aspect of the finished product, and they create and test different designs for all sorts of companies – all day, every day.
They know what sort of marketing design gets results, and they’ve got a refined sense of visual style that’s been honed through years of practice and experience – working on projects with a proven track record of success.
From the very beginning, graphic designers like ours will already be thinking about:
- Spatial balance – how the arrangement of every element of the design guides the eye to the right information.
- The blend of colours – how different colours complement each other, how the right choice of colour can help different elements to stand out, and the psychology behind how different colours affect our perceptions and feelings.
- Making the right choices for different media – getting the balance of size, space, and colour right for posters, brochures, adverts, and web design.
- Expert details you might never have thought of – like choosing the right paper stock for a better sensory and tactile experience
