The Top 5 Things to Look for in a Graphic Designer
We realize that looking for a graphic designer can be difficult because there are so many graphic designers all over the world. The neat thing is that with the internet all of the most talented designers are at your fingertips.
So with all these options we’d like to help make the “looking” a little simpler when searching for the right graphic designer for the job. We’re going to answer the question, “What are the top 5 things to look for in a graphic designer?” by asking questions that can help you answer this one.
1. Have you looked at their portfolio? Most savvy graphic designers have a website that features their best work. Visit their website to see the work they’ve done. If their work is excellent on a scale of: BAD, GOOD, BETTER, BEST, EXCELLENT, then they might be the perfect candidate for your project.
2. Do they have satisfied customers? Their designs might be fabulous but their customer service might stink. Of course, you might not be in a rush for your design work, but if you are you might want to check references to see how quickly they deliver and if they deliver exactly what their customers want. Ask them for a list of references that you can call and check up on.
3. Have they asked you a lot of sensible questions about your particular project? Have they brought things to your mind that help you, but that you didn’t think about before? Do they seem interested in what it is you’re trying to accomplish or do they seem in a rush to get started? If they don’t ask enough questions they probably aren’t going to give you the design you want and deserve.
4. Is there a language barrier between you and the designer? If the designer doesn’t understand you and you aren’t able to adequately communicate and express your ideas easily to the designer it might not be a good idea to continue. It might just be money down the tubes…
5. Lastly, and of course, what do they charge?? We believe that the right graphic design is important, but we also believe that it can be accomplished at a fair/reasonable price. Make sure it’s the right price.
