Research

Before starting any project, conducting market research is extremely important to get the most out of a design. This includes hearing from you to collect information about your business and determine what your goals are. We want to know about:

The culture
The vision
The competition
The target demographic
Our designs will showcase what you’re all about with an extra creative flair. We’ll also do our own research to complement what you’ve told us.

Concept and Brainstorming

Once we’ve fully researched your target market and corporate vision, it’s time to move on to the concept and brainstorming stage. Our expert graphic designers will get started by using the gathered information to come up with some general ideas.

This is very basic and preliminary but is an important launching stage to get the best possible design. For example, if a logo needs to be created, the designer will be looking at symbols, motifs, and typefaces that might work well together.

Evolving the Design

Over the course of the project, our designers get to work. Depending on the scope of your project, timelines may vary. However, when we get to a great spot, it’s your turn to provide input!

We love clear and constructive feedback to ensure the final result is a great representation of your brand. And, who knows your business better than you?

Elements of Effective Graphic Design

All designs are comprised of multiple elements. What sets apart a regular design from a great one though is how each element interacts. A lot of things might look cool and interesting on their own, but there’s a true art in combining them to tell a visual story.

 

Color

One of the most important design elements is color! Simple designs might just have one color with various hues or shades, but other designs might have up to three. The key is making sure the colors fit the brand.

We determine this using a concept called color theory. Aside from personal preference, different colors actually hold unique meaning and are interpreted by viewers in specific ways. For example, yellow tends to portray happiness, energy, and friendliness.

Lines

Lines might not always be completely noticeable in a final design, but they often have a lot of meaning behind how they’re used. When used correctly, lines portray a sense of movement in the design.

Take Drabik Consulting’s brand for instance. We recently rebranded to include softer lines and rounded edges. This relays a very dynamic, organized, approachable, and ever-evolving image.

Scale

No, we’re not talking about size. Scale is actually very different since we’re discussing how large and small pieces are compared to the other components of the design. Having the right scale allows people to focus on the elements you feel are the most important.

Basically, this is a visual hierarchy.

Shape

The choice of shapes can bring your logo to the next level or lessen its impact, which is why having experience in graphic design is very important. Shape choice also tends to follow trends, such as how ones with curves tend to be associated with a modern look.

 

Alignment

If your design has good alignment, you’ll have a great sense of overall balance.

Let’s say you’re looking at a design and something seems off, but you can’t quite figure out what’s wrong. The likely case is that placement just seems random and uninspired.

Alignment guides the eye for easy viewing.

Contrast

Contrast is used to help you focus on the most important part of design. This could involve making the key feature brighter while making the more insignificant areas faded or darker.

An example of high contrast is black text on a white background.

Space

Not everything needs to be filled in with something. A great design needs some breathing room with what’s known as “white space”. This makes it easier for the viewer to acknowledge and absorb what each element has to offer.

Can I Provide Any Input During the Graphic Design Process?

Definitely! In fact, we highly encourage it. You’re an important part of the graphic design process, because you’re the one who’s able to guide us to the final result. We’ll offer you multiple options along the way and you can pick and choose the elements you like the most.

Who Creates the Designs for My Business?

We have an in-house Creative Team who is ready to make incredible designs for your business. Everyone on our team comes from various areas of study, bringing unique perspectives to each project!

How Long Will the Graphic Design Process Take?

Not all projects are the same, so we can’t give an umbrella timeline for everything. When you choose us for your next project, your dedicated account manager will lay out a customized timeline for your design.

What Does Your Logo Design Process Look Like?

Creating a new logo is a defining moment in any company’s history! We take logo creation seriously.

Our process starts with you having an in-depth conversation with your Account Manager. During this meeting, you’ll discuss what your business does, its target audience, and references that you like or dislike.

From there, our Creative Team works their magic and designs a series of custom logos. You then provide feedback until we’ve hit the nail on the head!

How Do I Receive My Project?

This depends on the type of project! Say you’re getting print materials designed. If you know your printer, we can create files that are ready to send over to them. If you need help with printing, we’ve got someone for the job! Just ask.

Now, in terms of logos. Our team will package up your logo, so you have variations to use across all projects. This includes a full-color jpeg, png, and vector. Additionally, we’ll create all black and all white variations.
