Finding The Right Graphic Designer For Your Next Project

One of the most important considerations when starting a new project is who you should hire to design your website, logo, or other graphic material. There are so many options to choose from that it may be difficult to decide who would be best for your specific needs.

Here are some things you should consider before hiring a graphic designer:

Ask yourself what you want the designer to do.

If you want sit down sit down with them and come up with your graphics plan that’s fine. I also recommend that you look for a designer that provides value-added services. For example, graphic templates for social media — or including Facebook cover images to complete the brand package if a branded package is the service you need. At HY Design, we offer these services and more.

Have they worked on similar projects?

A great way to gauge your designer is to request their previous work, or a portfolio of their work. If you notice that they the designs they have done are not what you’re looking for, then that’s okay! This is a great way to know whether or not the designer is going to be able to mesh well with your project. When making your decision, you should look for someone who has worked on similar projects. They should understand your project needs and previous work history. Not all designers are specialized in all types of projects.

What is your budget? Are they within your price-range?

Logo design, depending on the designer, can cost anywhere between $100-$1,000. Typically, I charge around $200–300 for a custom logo, but prices vary based on complexity and usage. Keep in mind when you are choosing a designer that the price should reflect the quality of work. Also, stray away from low-ball prices. For example, Fiverr is a great way to be disappointed in the quality of logo. It’s much better to think about it as a business investment. A logo is the face of your brand, especially if it is for a company. You want to make sure that your brand stands out and is attractive.
