How much does a Graphic Designer cost?

The different kinds of graphic design and their complexity will greatly affect how much you can expect to pay. Graphic designers create a huge array of content – from posters and flyers to websites and logos. Some of these graphics are used for film or TV, while others find placement within ads. Graphic designers mix both skill and creativity, while also being able to communicate with clients in an effective manner.

How do I choose and work with a Graphic Designer?

When it comes to choosing your graphic designer, make sure you are clear as possible about what you expect from them. It’s best to write a detailed brief with background, details and timelines on your project. Giving them the relevant background information will attract the best talent possible for your brief.

Make sure to share details about your company, what you wish to achieve and any qualifications you think are necessary for the role. Explain any deadlines and things they may have to work around to make sure their understanding of the job is as comprehensive as possible.

It can also help if you understand a little bit about design yourself. Without going into too much detail, you can research what skills you would need for a particular job. After getting your head around some fundamental concepts, you can ask your candidate some questions to see how they respond.

This could be about past work they’ve done, or it could be about something you are wishing to create from scratch. This will give you a good idea of how they come up with solutions. You may even assign a trial project to complete – as long as this trial is paid for.

Talking to your potential designer on the phone is also useful. This way you can get a great understanding of how you will communicate together and whether you see eye to eye. Be sure to ask your candidate what they will need from you as well. This will help your project to go smoothly and result in the best possible outcome.

Do I need a Graphic Designer?

Having fantastic visual design can really change how your audience (or customers) view you. In fact, great graphic design goes way past just making things look good. As well as a strong visual impression, brilliant graphic design enables you to amplify your efforts and get your message across in a way that will make people take notice.

What are the different types of Graphic Design?

With the variety of graphic design solutions available, finding the correct one for your project is important. And while they can overlap, each of them will generally have their own specialisation with different skills or techniques needed. For example, there are designers that only focus on a single type of graphic design, and some that also include related skillsets. This is an industry that changes a lot, so designers have to adapt to different challenges as time goes on. Understanding some of these types of graphic design can help you greatly when it comes to picking the right professional.

User Interface Design

User interface design, also known as UI, involves the creation of graphics for interfaces within devices or applications. When created properly, UI design provides a great experience for the user. These designs will include all points of interaction for the user, including buttons, menus and more. This type of design has to not only look good but also be functional in a straightforward way.

Publication Graphic Design

Designing graphics for publications involves working with publishers or editors to create appealing layouts, artwork, illustrations and typography for various publications. These publications can include things such as magazines, books, newspapers and more. Again, the Internet has enabled this type of publishing to find a home online too.

Packaging Graphic Design

Creating designs for packaging needs a high level of knowledge of manufacturing and printing processes. These designers will create mock-ups as well as the final files for packaging for various types of items. The range of the retail processes means that these types of designers may also be enlisted for other design disciplines such as visual identity.

Visual Identity Design

Designers that work on visual identity will create materials such as typography, logos and colour palettes that help to define a brand identity. These designers often create guidelines that help to uphold consistency across the brand. These guidelines can then be applied throughout all of the brand’s media.

Marketing Design

Marketing designers use their skills to assist the owners or marketing strategists of a business to create digital assets. They can specialise in certain media or apply their skills to various digital or print projects. While marketing designers typically worked in print, the age of the Internet and technology has enabled them to expand to digital advertising and content marketing.

Making brands brilliant. Your brand is your visual voice. ​ It helps your customer relate to your brand and leads to a better customer experience. A well designed brand adds context and meaning, generates increased customer recognition,builds trust and above all tells your story. I am a one person team offering creative services to businesses of any shape and size. Having worked in London for many years freelancing for big design agencies, lock-down gave me the opportunity to work directly for clients. This allows me to provide an agency style service but without the over heads. Although I specialise in packaging design, I offer logo design, branding, promotional design, design for digital and social media platforms, digital advertising, photography, illustration, icon design, infographic design and artwork. Packaging design can be complex and technical and I can guide you through the requirements for each category, whether it be food, cosmetics or alcoholic beverages, having years of experience in production and print. All aspects of work I offer is carefully considered and produced to the highest standards and I will ensure that your design will not only look good but will be considered from a technical level. I have a wealth of experience in offering brand guidelines, artwork and implementation of your brand. I offer a very responsive service and pride myself on offering a friendly, personal working relationship. Please get in touch directly by email or phone if you would like to talk in more detail. Please note that I only respond to leads that have a brief and summary of the scope of work.

Describe your creative process.

Establishing what your requirements and budget are, in the first instance is key. This will allow me to give you a realistic quote to deliver your project. I try to be as transparent as possible and alert you to any factors that you need to be aware of in terms of costs due to the nature of the creative process.

What information do you need from a client before you can start work?

Budget
Design requirements
Brand name - does this exist or do you need help with naming? Has this name been checked and audited?
Any aspirations for your brand you may have - what are your long term goals?
Assets - if I am using any existing assets I will need 'vector' assets from you. Jpeg’s/png’s are not good enough quality to use for print unfortunately. Do you have any brand guidelines or a style guide with colours? Do you have guidelines for application of your brand/assets?
Application formats - how are you intending to use or apply your brand/logo?
Artwork requirements - This is not the same as design. Artwork may be required for final production or print. I am able to guide you on this matter as I have a wealth of experience in this field.

What do you love most about your job?

I love branding in particular, but generally love the creative process. Exploring ideas, sketching and then creating the final assets for production. I have a very high attention to detail. All aspects of your design will be considered from the very first sketch, through to the final assets. To you I may have just created a logo, but for me, I will have set the letter forms and spacing so they visually look pleasing to the eye and the logo or assets will have been drawn and crafted to the highest level.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I freelanced for London design agencies for over 20 years and really did not enjoy the labours of commuting. Lock-down liberated me because it showed me life without the commute and therefore I decided that this was the perfect opportunity to break the cycle and build up a client base to work with directly. No more commuting, hooray!

Why should our clients choose you?

You will receive a personalised, dedicated service of the highest quality, at the same time whilst being competitive. If you want a quick logo delivered without much thought for a bargain price, my service may not be for you.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

I can provide all my services remotely. I am set up at home with zoom and can present remotely.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

I am totally Covid-19 secure as all my services are delivered remotely.
