by Polly Playford Design Graphic Designer

Every firm needs a designer to be a logo or a graphic designer. Especially in this digital era when the competition is tough and designers play a very important role in marketing strategy. Designers can make or break the brand image of a company. 

 

To create amazing designs for your brand, the very first step is to hire a great freelance designer. As I have already told that it is a very important step for delivering the right message among the targeted audience.

 

Here are the tips for hiring the best freelancer designer.

 

Go through the portfolio 

 

When you are in the process of hiring a designer, the very thing you should look at is a portfolio. For instance, if the designer you are considering hiring does not have a public portfolio, you can go for asking him /her to send some of the work. Any designer that has been in business for a decent amount of time will have enough work to present to you and should be more than happy to produce it to you.

 

Going through the portfolio and resume of the candidate will be more than enough to decide whether he is the designer that you are looking for.

 

Look for creativity  

 

The creative a designer, the better it is. Now, the question is how to decide whether a designer is creative? It is simple; you can find the level of creativity in his/her portfolio. The design should not be cluttered, confusing, must be catchy, elegant and should be clear with its message. If the messages with the designs are clear enough for the targeted audience, then you are on your way to finding the designer and the designer with these qualities is skilled and creative for sure.

 

Do not hold back in telling your expectations

 

No one will your firm better than you. You will better know the kind of goals of your firm and the kinds of designs that you expect from the designer you are considering hiring. So, it is important to describe and open about your expectations and the kind of goals that you have for your firm.  

 

If you do not give the designer a brief idea of your firm and objectives and provide him with a blank canvas, then you never know what he/she comes up with. Unless, you have no idea what do you expect from your logo, better save you and the designer’s time by providing instructions.

 

Personality factor  

 

There are many freelance designer in London that are so open to communication and are so easy to work with. They have the entire process of designing fun. They are more than just on-paper skills and experience. It is not very hard to get the personality of the designer. You can easily find out how is work within the exchange of a couple of messages.

 

So, these are some of the factors that you must keep in mind when you are looking for a designer. Trust me, you will find yourself the best designer.
