Meeting a designer can be a daunting experience. I am here to tell you that it shouldn’t be! We are all friendly people like yourselves, really.
You might be worried that you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for. Well, let me tell you this, most people don’t. Even those that do quite often end up loving something that they didn’t think they would initially. As designers, it is our goal to produce something you love and feel truly represents your brand.
It is not essential that you have a wonderful concept before you contact a designer. In fact, it’s not essential that you have anything at all. It does make our jobs that little bit easier having a base to work off, however, that is what we as designers are here to do: we find answers to questions that may not be answered yet.
PRESENTING A CONCEPT TO YOUR DESIGNER
So, let’s say you have no idea about your brand. You want to present some sort of concept to your designer. In no way do we expect you to mock up a hundred and one designs to portray what you’re imagining (don’t let that stop you though). It’s the designer’s job to do research, we’ll help you get the best look and feel for your brand. We will do some digging to pull out your prominent theme, colours and fonts that will really suit the feel. So, if you come to us with nothing, don’t panic because that’s what we’re here for!
And what if you do have a concept? We are more than open to ideas, images and colour palettes! Don’t let anything stop you if you feel it will help explain your ideas. It could be some sound, maybe a texture you’ve found or a really blurry photograph you took three years ago. We can work with anything!
WE’RE HERE TO HELP
I hope what you have taken from this is that as a designer, we don’t expect anything. Anything you do want to present to us can be as wild as you like! We are here to take control of those ideas. We are here to create ideas you didn’t realise you even had.
There are no expectations, so don’t be scared to get the ball rolling.
