Finding a graphic designer these days isn’t that difficult. With online services, you’ll find someone pretty quickly either locally, or overseas. Finding a graphic designer who is good and reliable though…. well that’s another story.
There’s nothing worse than having to look for someone new every time you need graphic design work done.
Here are a few tips you should consider when looking for a graphic designer and why local is best!
If you hire someone to do a job, then you know how important clear communication is. When you don’t like the design, have questions, or simply want to check in with your designer, it’s easy to do when you use a local graphic designer.
The graphic designer you work with must understand what your needs are. Who your audience or market is, and the project constraints (time, budget, materials, approvals).
QUALITY OF SERVICE
Using a local graphic designer gives you the one on one time you deserve. You are not just another project in the queue. Working with a local graphic designer they get to know your business, your goals and the purpose of your brand needs.
When working with someone overseas, you don’t get guidance or support. Working locally you have someone to call or even stop by to have a quick discussion to go over the project.
Deadlines are crucial to the majority of business owners. It can be challenging to meet deadlines if the person you are working with is several hours (or worse a day) behind your time zone. Overseas designers can often take much longer to produce the final result for clients, which in the end, causes stress and only saves a few dollars.
GOOD FOR BUSINESS
Working with a local graphic designer can be good for both your business and theirs. You will most likely be referring them to others, and the graphic designer will be doing the same for you. Furthermore, it will be beneficial in the sense that you are supporting local business.
Overall, when dealing with overseas graphic designers, the lack of active communication and issues with deadlines can become frustrating.
