Smart, polished, striking: these are the results you get when you hire a professional designer to create the visuals for your marketing.

Of course, you could try your own hand at creating a logo and website for your business. But here are four compelling reasons why you shouldn’t:

1. Speed and efficiency

A professional designer can get design work done fast. Whether it’s logo design, branding or web design, professionals work quickly and efficiently and they do things right. They focus on top quality elements and they rarely make mistakes.

When you hire professionals, there won’t be any printing hold-ups due to corrupted fonts or incorrectly set borders. You also won’t end up with a slow-loading website or one that no-one can find.

2. Avoid the same old templates

Design sites like Canva offer a dazzling array of templates for non-designers to use. But there is a cookie-cutter look to these so-called design solutions. These types of templates will make you look the same as low-budget competitors in your industry.

What’s more, experimenting with different templates chews up a lot of time; time that would be better spent focusing on your core business.

3. Understanding graphic design for different types of media

There are some important differences between graphic design for print and graphic design for online applications. These range from terminology to file formats to programming tools.

Understanding the restrictions and possibilities of both print and web design is key to getting your marketing visuals right. A professional design team will instinctively know what works best in each medium. It’s their job!

4. Just because you’re a small business, you don’t have to look like one

Many small businesses are small in size only. They’re very often dynamic, innovative and well-loved commercial enterprises. They deserve the best when it comes to design.

A professional design team will help your small business create the kind of brand identity that really reaches your target audience.

Good Design is Good Business

In a 1973 lecture to students at the University of Pennsylvania, Thomas J. Watson Jr. (14 Jan 1914 – 31 Dec 1993) declared that “good design is good business”. Watson Jr. was an American businessman, political figure, and philanthropist. He did stints as national president of the Boy Scouts of America and United States Ambassador. However, it was his time as the 2nd president of IBM (1952–1971), taking over from his father Thomas John Watson Snr, that he made his mark. Taking significant strides in building IBM (International Business Machines) into a modern international corporation, Thomas Watson played a leading role in the rising, technological revolution that was taking place, leading the way in advanced electronics and computing.

During his time at the helm of IBM, Thomas Watson Jr fostered relationships with talented Artists, innovative Architectural and Industrial Designers and the very best Graphic Design creatives. Hiring them as design consultants to build a recognisable worldwide brand and also designing around 150 modern manufacturing plants and corporate IBM office buildings worldwide, not to mention countless sleek-looking IBM machines and products.

 

“In a sense, a corporation should be like a good painting; everything visible should contribute to the correct total statement; nothing visible should detract. Thus, a company’s buildings, offices, graphic design and so forth should all contribute to a total statement about the significance and direction of the company.”  Eliot Noyes | IBM Architect & Industrial Designer

 

“A company’s visual representation was inextricably tied to the quality of the company itself.” Paul Rand | Art Director & Graphic Designer

Brand-Building-Jaffa

You’ve probably got a business name and a unique selling proposition (USP) that you use to set your product or service apart from your competition, but have you built your brand yet?

While establishing a name and USP can be done immediately, branding is much more of an evolutionary process. Before we talk about building your brand, let’s try to understand what it is. A business name and logo are clearly quantifiable. Your brand is less so. Advertising guru, David Ogilvy defined a brand as:

The intangible sum of a product’s attributes: its name, packaging, and price, its history, its reputation, and the way it’s advertised.

Other advertisers may define it a bit differently; however, branding is a culmination of factors. You can set the pricing for your product or service, but your reputation is earned and your history develops over time.
