Everyone wants the best value for money. In the highly competitive market of graphic design, the very first question that people ask themselves is whether to pick a freelance graphic designer or a design agency.
Between someone that does freelance or an agency, the type of graphic design service that you chose should always depend on the requirements of your project.
Sometimes it is better to opt for a freelancer, and sometimes hiring a design agency would be the best. If you have a tight budget, then go for a freelancer. Most freelancers work from home, so you do not have to pay the overhead costs. If you hire an agency, the overhead costs are a little higher but it may be worth it to have peace of mind knowing that your design will be done according to your specifications, is backed by a professional team and will be delivered on time.
Hiring freelance designers can come with cons as well. If your project needs multiple skill sets, then a design agency is going to be far better. It’s not that a freelancer is not versatile, but an agency can provide more well-rounded experience for bigger projects because they work as a team. Also, you do not have to hire multiple freelancers to get the job done. You can get everything completed under the same roof with a graphic design agency. If you’re in need of variety of styles and skill sets, we’d recommend hiring us!
If you hire a freelancer, you might have to wait for your designs if they become sick, or have personal problems. This is not the case with design agencies, because we have fixed working hours, which are backed up with designers in on call. As a design agency, we can deliver rushed projects within your deadline, and they are will be well done.
Finally, a freelancer might struggle to communicate delays, may not take the job seriously or may not understand certain references, where as a graphic design agency is more versatile and efficient when it comes to communication.
