Useful Information When Hiring A Collateral Designer


A well-designed collateral for your company can and should attract the attention of potential customers and users, but a great one can leave a lasting impression. At many events, collaterals are the thing that people refer to for easy reference to your business and serve as a way for them to remember your brand post-event. It is also the perfect way to introduce your business to someone who may just be passing by, so it is key to have one that is properly designed

Tips, tricks and challenges

  1. Get to know their work – Look at what they have designed so far and judge if that is of the standard that you require.
  2. Clearly state requirements – Ensure the design company has a good design brief with your purpose, intended audience, specific requirements, company branding/assets and other details before the start of the project.
  3. Establish a communication system – Making changes to design in the short term isn’t easy. Make sure you know what to do when you need last minute changes or if you need to contact them urgently so both parties are prepared.
