Why should businesses pay attention to their graphic design?
In a market crowded with dozens of competitors selling the same product or service, the only way to stand out from the rest is with strong branding. The best way to keep a customer satisfied is by making the buying process easy. This requires a graphic designer. Good graphic design is a must for any business, not an optional extra.
A graphic designer works as a facilitator, creating designs that help the user accomplish a task. This could be anything from finding information to recognizing a brand. This is why web pages, logos, and print ads with poor graphic design aren’t as effective as well designed ones – they don’t help the viewer get things done. Sometimes, they even get in the way.
Typography, layout and colour choice are more than just graphic design elements.
They are the tools that a graphic designer uses to promote a business’s image. They can minimize elements that aren’t important and highlight the things that are important, allowing viewers to quickly see what they need to in order to decide on a purchase. Many business owners don’t think about how important graphic design is for a business. They forget that the job of design is to make the process easier and focus on looks to the exclusion of utility.
If you’ve ever used a website that wasn’t easy and intuitive in its navigation, or you’ve seen a print ad that gave you a headache, this is probably what happened. Form must never win over function, but you have to understand function in order to get a good result.
Good graphic design also gives a business credibility
This something that many small businesses need. You’ve probably hesitated to buy a product or service because of looks in the past. Poor graphic design can look careless and cheap, making you wonder if the business is just as careless about the quality of service, construction or other important details.
A trained graphic designer has more than just technical skill.
This is something that many business owners don’t realize. Someone with a solid knowledge of graphic design also knows what does and does not work for a client. As well as when these factors transfer between one situation and another. They know when to use a rule and when to break it! In order to best serve the business and its customers and create a seamless brand or interface.
