3 Things To Consider When Hiring A Graphic Designer To Work With Your Business

  • Written by NewsServices.com

If you have a business but aren’t a graphic designer yourself, it’s a good idea to bring someone onto your team that has this specific skill set. However, finding the right person or team to help you with this part of your business can be a real challenge. Luckily, with a little research and interviewing, you should be able to find someone that can give you exactly what your business needs.

To help you in finding this person and making this decision, here are three things to consider when hiring a graphic designer to work with your business. 


Check Out Their Portfolio First

Once you’ve put your feelers out about needing a graphic designer and you have some options for people to work with in front of you, the very first thing you’ll want to do is take a look at their portfolio.

Any graphic designer applying for a position will have a portfolio of their previous work. As you look through what they’re choosing to show you, Jennifer Davis, a contributor to Business2Community.com, recommends that you look for examples in their work that are close to what you’ll be needing from them. It can be even more beneficial if they’ve worked with or for someone who’s in your same area of business, like if they’ve designed for another public service department or another dentist before. This will ensure that they have some knowledge of what you do and what you’ll need from a professional standpoint. 


Find Someone Who Will Push You

Since you’re not a graphic designer yourself, you might not have a very good understanding of what constitutes a good design idea. So although you might know what you like and what you don’t like, Jenny Knizer, a contributor to USA Today, recommends that you try to find a designer to work with that will push you out of your comfort zone and into some technically solid design ideas.As long as you feel that you can trust their judgement and advice, you should be able to come up with some great ideas together for your business. 


Know If Experience In Print Is Important To You

While a lot of graphic design work is meant solely for online use nowadays, if you are going to be having materials printed, Brodie Fogg, a contributor to Freelancer.com, recommends that you find someone who has experience with printing their work before.

Things with printed designs have a lot more to consider than work that’s only meant to be online, so having someone with this experience can be invaluable to you. 
If you’re looking for a graphic designer to help take your business to the next level, consider using the tips mentioned above to find the right person for the job.
