Finding A Local Brochure Designer
Brochure designs can vary a lot, as can the price of the brochure.
The UK has thousands and thousands of designers dotted around ranging from smaller designers up to large London based design agencies that work with top global brands.
Finding a brochure designer that is suited to your business is important if you are going to get the best brochure designed for your business/application.
However before you go to a designer you need to do a couple of things.
Decide on the size and style of brochure
If you go to a brochure designer and ask for a brochure, they will probably say ‘sure, what sort’.
If you know the size of brochure you want (standard is A4), the material (standard is card) and the number of pages – this will make things easier to quote
Do you have pictures/photos
This is important, because if you do not, then the designer needs to buy them or have a photographer take them.
Do you have a budget
Brochures can cost anything from £200 up to £10,000 for designing – so a budget will help to gauge where your design would fit.
Once you know what sort of brochure you want/need; you can then get some designers to put some quotes together for you to compare. All brochure designers chargedifferently for designing and then they would normally outsource the printing and production of the hard copy.
Most companies do look for the following criteria in selecting a brochure designer:
Someone local – as meeting them is important
Many designers prefer to work at a distance without meeting (normally because they can handle more clients if they do not do face to face meetings and as a result more money) up. However without meeting them, how are you to know they are based in the UK, they are what they say they are on their website. By meeting you can gauge what sort of agency they are, how they work and also ensure they have a clear understanding of exactly what you need.
This may make you unpopular as a high maintenance client – however you want to ensure you get the most value for your money.
Someone experienced – if they know your industry, this helps with getting the right design produced.
Many designers say that experience is not important, they design brochures and are good at it; however if they are to clearly communicate your message, they need to understand your market.
Someone cost effective – as brochure design prices vary from agency to agency
Prices do vary from agency to agency, so it is well worth comparing brochure design costs to ensure you get the best price for the best brochure.
