Graphic design will breathe life into your marketing efforts and advertising campaigns. It is a form of communication that will draw in a potential customer and inform, delight, and persuade him to convert. It is also used to provide a visual identity to your content, and help improve your brand recognition. Whether you want to have a stellar business card, some great images for your social media, an infographic for your blog, professional design will make your marketing materials stand out to your target audience. So let’s take a deeper look. How can graphic design help your business?
1. A great first impression
Imagery is always the first thing that a potential customer comes into contact with. As such, his first impression is set by the graphic design of your branding. If your brand identity is strong, it will leave a lasting impression, and the user will feel an initial affinity with your business, if it’s not, the user may be turned off and outright leave. This professional brand image may be anywhere – your website, a business card, a social media post, or an online ad, which is why having a strong brand present across all your materials is important.
2. Increased credibility
Good graphic design that is consistent along all your outlets not only increases brand awareness, it also establishes credibility. Graphic elements, logo design, and graphic design in general pop out to people, as we’ve mentioned previously, and having consistent quality in your images creates a sense of credibility. After all, if a business has put this much effort into presentation, the product or service must be high quality as well. It’s a natural human instinct to judge a book by its cover. Quality visual consistency can build trust, and reassures a customer that doing business with you is in his best interest.
3. Efficient sharing of information
We all know that a picture is worth a thousand words, but what about an infographic? According to Hubspot, infographics are shared and liked almost 3 times more often than other types of social media content. With an infographic, you are able to condense a great amount of information that would otherwise be overlooked by your customer base if it were in text form. We are evolutionarily adapted for visual communication, and a professional image can help deepen the understanding and memorization of data.
4. Increased competitiveness
With quality graphic design, your brand becomes more competitive. Imagine two companies, one has good website design, memorable logos and stunning design elements, and the other has poor design. Of the two, who do you think is likely to make a positive impression, and take full advantage of each lead it draws in? On the internet, attention span is greatly shortened, since there is simply too much info, so if the color scheme is not right, if you do not have a look that builds trust right away, you will quickly lose a potential customer. This is why proper branding, and a strong brand image is so important. Without them, you will lose customers to companies that actively use visual aids for building trust, and present a positive image.
5. Strong messaging
Graphic design can help you transmit more than just data to your customer base. Messaging is all about your story, and it is conveyed through everything from logo design to your printed materials, communication design, signage and other visual elements. Someone who is well versed in graphic design is aware of the important role that different colors and shapes play in eliciting certain emotions and the impact they have on the user experience. In fact, choosing the right color scheme plays a huge role in the design process. This is true for websites, as well as packaging design, and various successful campaigns on social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, or for mobile apps on Apple and Android devices.
