7 Reasons To Hire A Freelance Graphic Designer
If you have a design project, then you are probably looking for someone to get the job done. You want consider hiring a freelance graphic designer. Someone like, um, er, well…. us!
Freelance graphic designers are often overlooked by clients. We don’t show up at the top of the search results because we don’t have big marketing budgets like most agencies do.
Yes, there are times when it is best to work with an agency. If you are a multinational company and willing to pay a large retainer fee, then, yes, hire an agency. Often clients choose to work with an agency because they have a “real office” and a staff of employees.
Many small to medium-sized businesses, authors, and solopreneurs are discovering the advantages of hiring freelance graphic designers. They realize that they can get the same agency quality work from a freelance designer at a fraction of the cost.
A good designer will quickly build a reputation for themselves—good or bad. The majority of our clients are pleased with the quality of our work.

Let’s talk about the…
1. AFFORDABLE PRICES
Pair of Aces Designs, like many freelancers, operates in a home office. This means lower overhead costs. This allows us to offer more affordable prices without a reduction in quality.
I’m not saying we are the cheapest designers. In fact, I pretty much guarantee that we are the lowest bid you could get. But, if quality work, attention to detail, and good communication is what you’re looking for… hire us!
2. PERSONAL ATTENTION
There is a reason that agencies have lots of employees. They usually have more clients and must schedule their time based on the size of the client’s budget. It’s extremely possible for your smaller project to be overshadowed by the “big guy’s” job.
Another thing to consider is that you might not get to choose which designer you want to work with. The size — and priority — of your project may determine which staff person you get assigned to.
At Pair of Aces Designs, we like to work with a limited number of projects at a time. This allows us to give you you and your project our full attention. If you decide you like working with us, then you will always be able to choose your designer. Your project is very important.

6. EXPERIENCE AND SKILLS
Freelancers are small business owners (or solopreneurs) just like you. We have to wear many hats and have many skills. We are designers, marketers, sales managers, accountants, and, sometimes, even social media geeks. When you hire us, you get a wealth of experience in the package.
