Discovering What You Need
The first step to selecting a graphic designer is discovering your needs. What do you need created? What will you possibly need created in the future? Depending on your needs, you may only need one multi-specialized general designer or you may need several specialized designers. If your project is massive, you may even need a small boutique or large agency to handle your project.
Concerning what you need designed, if you don’t know exactly what you need, ask the designer you choose to work with what he recommends.
