Why hire an experienced freelance graphic designer?

A key benefit of hiring a freelance Graphic Designer is the wealth of experience they command across many aspects of design. This can range from web design, logo design and typography to illustrations, calligraphy and fine art. Graphic Designers gain that breadth of creative knowledge as a natural result of working with multiple clients across various industries. Another advantage of hiring a Graphic Design Freelancer is flexibility. With in-house designers, you are limited to office hours, but that’s not the case with a Freelancer. If you have a last-minute deadline, you can often find a designer willing to work evenings and weekends to help you get the job done.

What does a freelance graphic designer do

A freelance graphic designer combines artistic talent and creativity with a mastery of design software to bring your ideas to life. This can range from putting together a one-off business logo to being the creative vision behind your entire brand identity. Essentially, anything that can feature images or typography is in safe hands with a Graphic Designer. Typically, a freelance designer will work with you to transform your concepts into rough layouts and sketches. These early drafts may require several revisions and minor edits before you are completely satisfied. After that, the real fun begins as your ideas start to take form. Most graphic designers take a great deal of pride in their work so you can expect to be hiring someone as passionate about your project as you. Their responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

Visual identity of brands, individuals and organisations
User interface design for websites, software and apps
Magazines, ebooks and general publishing
Advertising and marketing materials
Product, packaging and label design

Frequently asked questions

What is graphic design and how many types of graphic design are there?

When should you hire a graphic designer?

There are several reasons why now might be the time to hire a freelance Graphic Designer. This includes:

Time — If you’re spinning a lot of plates, you may find yourself putting off marketing tasks that require the skills of a professional Graphic Designer.

Skills/knowledge — You know a few tricks in Photoshop, but your lack of deeper design knowledge is creating bottlenecks and blockers. This is especially important if you want a complete overhaul, and you need help from someone with end to end experience of brand identity.

Ideas —  For whatever reason, the lightbulb moments have dried up, and you need an injection of creativity from someone with a fresh perspective.

Reliability —  Imagine spending hours on a design and rushing it to the printers, only to discover that you used the wrong dimensions. Save yourself the hassle in the long run and hire a professional.
