When to Use Graphic Design for Your Business

The digital world is taking over, and your company needs to follow suit. Many businesses are now ditching brick and mortar in order to take their company solely online. Others are ditching traditional marketing tactics in order to use only new digital options.

When it comes to marketing your business, whether internally or externally, it’s very important that you have a handle on the right routes to take. You need to be sure that your business is using graphic design to your advantage. Having a graphic designer on staff, or outsourcing your graphic design needs, will help ensure consistency and attractiveness throughout your marketing collateral, whether digital or print. According to Multi Image Group, an app design and web development company, “The driving force behind decisions is emotion. It’s what makes us human, makes us tick, and defines how we react to different situations.” Using a graphic designer will ensure that emotion is highlighted on whatever type of collateral you want to create.

Graphic design can be used in a variety of different ways throughout your company, and the following are a few options to help you jump on the graphic design bandwagon.

Website

The most obvious place that graphic design will benefit your company is through your website. At this point, your company should currently have a website. If you don’t, now is the time to invest in one, as many of your customers are looking for companies just like yours online.

If you do have a website, you need to make sure it’s branded, user-friendly, and attractive. This is where a graphic designer comes in handy. Your graphic designer will be able to design the website so that it incorporates your company’s branding (colors, fonts, etc.). They will also be able to lay the site out so that it’s easy for your audience to use. A graphic designer will also be able to make the site attractive to the eye. If the site is jumbled or unattractive, your visitors may leave after landing on your site.

Digital Ads

Along with websites, your graphic designer will also be able to create digital ads for your company too. If you market your company on other websites, then your graphic designer will be able to create ads that also represent your branding as well as the messaging you want to use. Having a professional graphic designer create an ad will ensure the piece is much more attractive than it would be if you used just text. An attractive ad will be more likely to be seen by your potential customers, and if you’re using a PPC advertising tool, then you’ll likely earn more clicks and more traffic because of it.

Apps

Many companies are now using apps as a way to market their business and attract their customers. If your company is interested in creating an app, then a graphic designer will be able to help you. You can talk with a graphic designer about what type of app you want to create as well as how you want it look and what you want it to do. They’ll be able to use the information you provide in order to create an app that fits your wants and needs and is attractive and user-friendly for your audience as well.

Print

Even though you may not create as many print collateral pieces as you once did, a graphic designer can still help. They will be able to design whatever type of piece you want them to create with the messaging you want to use. Plus, they’ll be able to add fun graphics or design elements to ensure it doesn’t just look like a boring piece of paper. So if you want a one-page brochure, a booklet, or even a white paper, a graphic designer will be able to take it from bland to grand.
