In your quest for a graphic designer, make sure that your final choice is the best from those available
*Does the graphic designer who you are thinking about hiring understand what your business does? You can’t expect the artist to know as much about your products and services as your sales professionals do, of course, but a basic understanding of your business should be a requirement.
*A shared vision of your long term plan will be an important tool that a good graphic artist will rely on to be able to promote your company visually.
*A reputable graphic artist will put your business needs ahead of the need to show off all of the glitz and glam tricks in the design arsenal. An entertainment industry graphic artist and a more serious industry like a medical supply producer will approach their individual markets in different way. The right graphic designer will instinctively know the difference.
*Before you hire the graphic designer, ask to see the profession portfolio. Ask them what changes they would have made to past work to make them fit your industry. A varied portfolio will show flexibility and ability to understand the unique need of individual businesses.
*An experienced graphic designer should be able to provide you with a list of references. Satisfied employers who they have helped succeed because of the success of their graphics will show that they are experts in their field and easy to work with.
*Can the graphic designer recognize your target audience? If you are in a niche market, you want a theme that is eye catching and appealing to your unique potential customers or clients.
*Is the graphic artist a good fit with your marketing department? In order to design a brand to tie your marketing promotions together, marketing has to be able to communicate within the department as well as to the consumer.
