Do-it-yourself projects are meant to save money, but can end up going wrong, requiring emergency fixes from experienced professionals at an extra cost. A few of these DIY’s are pretty obvious, like complicated electrical work. But some ideas seem easy enough – like designing your company’s logo or website.
However, like electrical work, graphic design is best left to the professionals.
Like electricians, graphic designers have the specialized training and experience to know that a slight adjustment, or the latest technology, can make a big difference in the final product.
And like hiring an electrician, hiring a graphic designer is a solid investment! People hire an electrician to avoid serious injury, and faulty wiring that can burn down your home.
Similarly, hiring a professional graphic designer helps ensure faulty marketing does not burn your business. A professional can help a new or growing businesses create a strong marketing foundation for their company’s growth and success. A well-thought out, skillfully crafted logo, online marketing plan, or print piece can better position your brand in the marketplace and create more opportunities for your business.
For example, a logo that is clean, concise and uniquely yours can clearly communicate your mission and values. A web design that responds to a customer’s viewing device – phone, tablet, laptop – shows that your company understands technology and how it’s changing. Business cards and brochures that are printed on carefully selected paper can leave an impression of professionalism and competence.
Too often, entrepreneurs try to tackle branding and design on their own. Entrepreneurs are smart people with good ideas, but are often too close to the day-to-day operations of their business to clearly communicate their brand proposition in their marketing materials.

Entrepreneurs are smart people with good ideas, but are often too close to the day-to-day operations of their business to clearly communicate their brand proposition in their marketing materials. Or they just simply can’t find the time to pull together an effective logo or website.
That’s where an investment in professional marketing and design services will pay off — with materials that are effective, strategic and delivered on time.
So take a deep breath … and cross this DIY project off your list.
