Is print design dead?
I hear this a lot but print really isn’t dead.
There are many industries that still use print materials to reach a target audience and when fused with online activities it can create a powerful omni-channel experience that connects offline and online marketing for your brand.
I wrote a blog post about 5 common print design myths which is worth a read too!
How long does the print design process take?
This really depends on the project and requirements.
Some clients may just be looking for business cards designed up which can be turned around quicker than a magazine design, for example. However, I always give a clear indication when discussing the project just how long it might take.
In what format will I receive my print design files?
I supply all print files in print-ready PDFs.
Do you do one-off print design projects?
No matter what your print requirements are, I can complete one-off projects or regular print projects. Get in touchto discuss your project today.
How much information do I need to provide for the print design project?
I will require the print spec details in order to create your design, so if you can provide me details of the brochure, the magazine, the leaflet or digital brochure then this will help.
Please also the supply content you would like to use. I can supply images if required.
Will I get a proof to review before the work is complete?
Yes, of course!
The process would be that I would supply PDF proofs for you to review. I then take your feedback and make any changes. I also recommend getting a final print proof from the printers before it goes to press!
Does my print design need to mirror my digital design work?
That’s entirely your choice, but I can offer guidance on both print and digital design too.
What sort of print design work do you typically do?
I create everything from leaflets to monthly magazines. Take a look at some of my print design projects.
How can you tell a good print designer from a bad one?
Legibility. You need your design to look good but it also needs to be legible.
If the font is too small or the colour contrast is not working, that would be a bad design.
Keep an eye out for designs with bad layouts for ads or brochures too – it’s important that a good print designer knows how to pull out important bits of text to build a hierarchy on the page so the key messages jump out to the reader.
