When you hear the phrase “freelance graphic designer,” what image immediately pops into your head? Is it a poorly groomed 20-something, lounging around at home watching Family Guy re-runs, wearing potato chip-coated pajamas, while occasionally getting up to do some client work?
Well, he is out there, but I’m not him.
Some freelancers, like the one described above, give us legitimate, hardworking freelance graphic designers a bad name. All it takes is one bad experience with a freelance designer and one may never use a freelancer again, which is why I work hard to make sure your experience with me, from first contact to project completion, is as professional and pleasurable as it can be.
Most of my clients are very pleased with my quick response time, quality of work, marketing knowledge, professional demeanor, and ability to execute a marketing strategy through design.
More and more small to medium-sized businesses are beginning to pursue and hire freelance graphic designers on a project basis in order to keep their overhead low. These companies have realized that they can get the same agency quality work from a freelance designer at a fraction of the cost.
Let’s face it, I have very low overhead. The chair I am sitting in is 9 years old (yet still comfortable), my desk is from IKEA, my home is my office, and I don’t have employees sitting around doing nothing (while still expecting to get paid every two weeks). All of these facts save me money and I pass those savings on to you.
Now, don’t get me wrong… I am not the cheapest designer in the world – or even Ann Arbor for that matter. Your boss’s cousin’s friend who took an art class once could probably beat my rates. But I am much more affordable than even a small design firm and you don’t have to sacrifice on the quality of the work as you can see from my graphic design portfolio.
Is it time you take the plunge and test the waters of working with a freelance graphic designer? Feel free to get in touch with me so we can go over your next design project.
