When to Hire a Freelance Graphic Designer

As an experienced freelance graphic designer, there are many different situations when my services have been required. Read on to see if hiring a freelancer could benefit you in these situations.

  1. Holiday cover

Every year I work holiday cover at an agency, to fill in for a permanent staff member.

  1. Additional capacity

If you have a project, but not enough time to get the work done, bringing in a freelancer is your safest bet to ensure you meet a deadline.

  1. Expertise

A professional level of knowledge which isn’t within your current repertoire can be acquired via a freelance designer without a long-term commitment needed.

  1. Benefit to your business

If you need branding or communications design, such as a brochure, but don’t have the need for a full-time employee, a freelancer can provide this service.

  1. During a staff changeover

Logistically, navigating a staff changeover can be tough. The departing employee will be expected to leave swiftly. Recruiting the right replacement can take time. A freelance designer or art director can provide temporary relief when business needs to continue as usual.

It’s great to have someone on-call, ready for when any of the above situations arise, as great freelance designers are often booked up weeks or months in advance. Take a look at my work here, then get in touch at grace@abelldesign.co.uk and let me know how I can help.
