If you are in the throes of selecting a graphic designer for designing your brand’s identity, you need to be able to chafe the crème de la crème of the industry from the ones that sow design nightmares (and trust us, the bad ones are pretty proliferate across the graphic design world). Selecting a professional designer who is on top of their game is indispensable, as design is taking a precedence in defining the visual identity of a brand, which makes it unique and memorable to your audience.
Not to mention, nobody wants to work with a run-of-a-mill designer who doesn’t know what it is like to think outside the box, fails to meet deadlines, refuses to honor your ideas and feedback, puts their feet down when it comes to honoring the promises of unlimited revisions, has no knowledge of branding essentials and what they mean for businesses, and makes you pull out your hair in exasperation to put it in a nutshell!
