What is graphic design?
Put simply, graphic design is the art and craft of creating visual content that communicates a concept, an idea, or a brand message to the public. Logos, artworks, drawings, illustrations, cards, emails, and the whole paraphernalia of designs are all around us. You can see them in print and digital media, in shops, restaurants, and cafes, on billboards, books, and magazines, in the apps we use, the sites we visit, and the physical and digital products we buy. Graphic design is a type of communication medium that uses visual means to convey a message. Designers use different types of physical materials or software to combine images, graphics, and text as the main forms of expressing this message. Graphic design is used to sell, build brand identity, or move people towards specific actions. It is also a form of art but ultimately, the different elements of the graphic representation influence our perceptions and emotions. There are different types of graphic design such as ‘visual identity which deals with the visual elements of the brand via shapes, colors, and images (e.g. logo design, typography, brand style guides), and ‘marketing and advertising which is used directly to generate leads and sales via print (billboards, brochures, flyers, print ads) or digital (social media posts, banners, videos). There are many other types such as website design, industrial and product design, fashion design, book and illustrations, motion graphics design used for example by streamers or in gaming design, and many others.
How to hire top graphic designers?
A captivating visual presence is very important whether you’re a business or a non-commercial entity.

So it’s imperative to carefully select Gigs Incorporation Limited to meet your needs and keep you within budget.

What’s important is to be clear on the important points; – Define a budget and be clear to yourself and how far you can stretch it; – Think long-term – we will be able to help you holistically and develop an evolving long-term vision for your product or service.
How much does it cost to hire a graphic designer?
There is no simple answer to this question as graphic design is not a commodity or a product that has an exact way to be measured or priced. The great thing about the Us is that starting from just $20 per gig and going up to hundreds or thousands of dollars for more complex and time and resource-consuming requirements. However, several factors will influence the final price of the project, the number of service options included in the gig, delivery times, the number of revisions, and whether any extras might need to be added at some point. Revisions can be a very tricky area for graphic design projects so it’s key for you to have very clear requirements to start with and also to agree with the Us about what our output will be (e.g. how many initial versions we will offer) to avoid any misunderstandings or unwanted surprises on both sides.
How do I write a good creative design brief?
The creative brief is a key document that essentially defines the objectives, scope, and key milestones of a design project. It gives the required information to the Team on what needs to be done, who the target audience will be, what key message(s) need to be communicated, what deliverables are expected, and by when (deadlines and milestones). The creative brief is the blueprint that you’ll need to agree on with your internal stakeholders, business partners, or colleagues (or if you are a one-person-show – find a friend or someone you trust to use as a sounding board) and then present to the Us to guide, inspire Us and ensure we deliver the best possible creative results. Here are some universal tips for writing a good creative brief that equally applies to most: – Start by answering the ‘what’ (your goal is) and ‘who’ (your audience is); – Be clear, concise and to the point – less is more in this case so avoid being too prescriptive and don’t elaborate too much; – Set realistic deadlines and factor in the time for feedback and revisions; – Ask for help – from your team, colleagues stakeholders; – Define what success will look like so both you and the designer can measure the results at the end (and stick to your initial definitions). Once you have all this, keep it as a template and use it for future briefs as it’ll save you time and will ensure you can build long-term relationships with Us.
