Have you ever had the feeling you see the same graphics across the web, over and over again? Standard website templates, generic logo designs; it’s all up for grabs. Here at ManyPixels, we strive for a more diverse online landscape. Keep reading to find out how we make sure the designs we create for our clients are unique and of the highest quality.

You are spoiled for choice between Pinterest boards, high-quality images, Dribbble featurettes, and countless other graphic design examples. But in all honesty, most designs show pretty much the same thing. No wonder the graphics you got from your freelance graphic designer got lost in an ocean of similarity.

Graphic designers make big bucks by tweaking an existing design and then selling it as custom-made. One might argue that this common practice is perfectly acceptable in our fast-paced digital world.

We disagree.

Definition of graphic design

You may be wondering: “why is graphic design important?”. To answer that, let’s have a look at the exact definition. According to the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA), graphic design is defined as “the art and practice of planning and projecting ideas and experiences with visual and textual content.”

We believe that custom design is crucial. Not only can it help your brand stand out from the crowd, but it can also influence your audience positively. Design should complement the ideas and experiences you’re trying to project as a brand. Your brand is unique, so it would only make sense for the design to be just that, as well.

Why is graphic design important?

Through graphic design, businesses communicate with their customers on a visual level. From representing your brand’s identity to engaging with your audience, it’s impossible without graphic design.

Sure, you can do this with recycled graphics. But should you? Let’s put it this way: if you choose to showcase your brand through an inauthentic design, it can damage your reputation. On top of that, it can also have legal implications.

How to make sure your graphic design is unique

Unique graphic design is rare. Design is heavily influenced by trends, and the availability of free amateur design is growing by the day. Still, there are a few ways to find out if your design is unique:

  1. A Google reverse image search shows you visually similar images to compare your design with.
  2. Dig through portfolio websites using specific keywords used for your industry, such as “yoga studio logo.”

A crystal clear design brief that communicates the specifics of your project is your ticket towards unique design. You are ensured the design process will focus on your needs and goals, resulting in a tailor-made graphic design.

Your involvement doesn’t end there. Give constructive feedback throughout the design process, and ask for iterations before approving the final design.

Pairing with a designer

Once you have your design brief, it’s time to pair up with a designer. The old saying still applies in this day and age: there are many ways to Rome. You can take a designer on board if you have the budget for it, or you can outsource your design needs.

Whether you decide to hire or outsource your graphic design, know that each comes with its pros and cons.

Hire a graphic designer

If you are ready to revamp your brand with compelling visuals, hiring a professional graphic designer is an excellent start. However, hiring a new employee is quite an investment. Have you ever wondered: what is the average salary of a graphic designer?

A simple Google search of “what is the average salary of a graphic designer in the US” will show you it’s a whopping $38,827 per year. So make sure your company’s pockets are deep enough before writing that vacancy.

Instead of increasing your company’s headcount and paying 40K for a graphic designer salary, you can try outsourcing.

Outsource graphic design

There are a couple of different ways to outsource your graphic design needs. Let’s have a look at them.

Hiring a freelancer

Finding a freelance graphic designer online can be a daunting task. Freelancers are often expensive, especially in the long run. Hiring a freelance graphic designer can take weeks. Additionally, you never know if the final result will be any good or delivered on time.

Hiring a freelancer can be an option if you only have a couple of projects. But then again, does it fit your schedule to go through the hassle of hiring a freelancer, just for those two projects?

When working with freelancers, managing projects takes up time. Does your freelancer happen to live in a different timezone? Then be prepared to stay up late.

Design studios

Another outsourcing option is to work with design studios. They are professional and experienced, offering versatile design products. But they, too, come with a few downsides.

Design studios are often costly. With the ever-expanding digitalization, they are also busy. Waiting on a design for weeks while paying top dollar? We would pass.

What if there was a better solution?

What if we tell you there is a way to have all your designs created in one place, without the hassle of hiring a freelancer or paying a fortune to design studios? That there is an affordable way you could have a team of creative professionals at your fingertips, working on all design aspects of your project?

How ManyPixels makes sure each client gets a unique and custom design

One of the most effective ways to guarantee unique and high-quality designs to our clients is by ensuring our people are talented, skilled, and technically proficient.

When hiring, we are cautious. Additionally, our professionalism and exceptional work ethic are applied to even the most mundane tasks. Since we rely on our people’s merit to ensure that each client receives extraordinary service, that’s extremely important to us.

Hiring graphic designers

We look at years of experience, design expertise, graphic design software proficiency, and style when taking graphic designers on board. Our service has a communication-focused approach, and so we assess candidates’ general soft skills during the initial interview.

Testing new candidates

After a successful interview, we give candidates a set of design challenges to deliver within a specific time frame (24-48hrs). This paid test includes logo design, illustration, gif design, website redesign, and e-book design.

If a candidate specializes in certain types of design, they can opt to deliver two to three challenges instead of all.

Additionally, candidates are required to provide a short video explaining their design concept and inspiration. This is an extra mechanism to gauge how well they can relay their ideas and communicate with our clients.

Guaranteeing quality

Similar to fine art, graphic design can be subjective. What is appealing and effective to some may not be to others.

However, with our experienced quality managers, we assigned multiple criteria that each project needs to meet. This way, we ensure that the graphic design delivered by our designers meets our high standards.

Each final product needs to check the following criteria:

  • Compliance with the design brief (branding guidelines, color schemes, application of logo, fonts, and any other attachment that the client provided)
  • Acceptance criteria (grammatical accuracy, spacing, no typos, etc.)
  • Performance criteria (meeting deadlines, respecting client-provided references, folder structure, file naming, etc.)

Guaranteeing authenticity

We strongly discourage our designers from using downloadable graphic assets from third-party websites. However, sometimes they help clients to visualize their ideas. In that case, our designers deliver the links for these assets to their quality manager.

The final quality-check process includes cross-referencing the final design with the source graphics. After the inspection, if the design modification is substantial, the final product receives the green light for delivery.
