Coming Up With a Good Name for a Graphic Design Company

29 October 2013 by Popeye

Coming up with a good name for a graphic design company is not hard. There are a few guidelines you need to observe though.

Firstly, a good name for a graphic design company would be one that is original. You may have to do a company name search, (at the website of the agency that undertakes company registrations) whenever you come up with any name idea, to see whether or not that particular business corporation name has already been taken.

Secondly, a good name for a graphic design company would be one that is easy to remember. You have to remember that this is the name you will subsequently be selling to prospective clients. And you have to remember that in some cases, when trying to select the person to do business with, clients tend to pick the first name that comes to mind: hence the need for you to opt for a name that is easy to remember: even if it doesn’t come across as sophisticated.

Thirdly, a good name for a graphic design company would be one that is suggestive of what the company does. It should be the sort of name that, at first glance, comes across as a name of a graphic design company.

Making the Work of Graphic Design Company Managers Easy

22 October 2013 by Popeye

Several strategies can be used to make the work of graphic design company managers easy.

The first strategy that can be used to make the work of graphic design company managers easy is that of providing them with the whole range of tools they need for their work. These include computers, decent offices and even cars. Take note of the fact that if you provide a manager with a car, you may also have to pay for its maintenance. If, for instance, the manager, while driving, flouts a given law in New Jersey, you may have to go to www.njmcdirect.com, to check the NJMCdirect ticket amount and then proceed to undertake ticket payment for the manager. All that would be in the name of making things easier for the manager!

The second strategy that can be used to make the work of graphic design company managers easy is that of orienting the workers properly. This would ensure that they know exactly what is expected of them: so that the managers just exist to motivate them.

The third strategy that can be used to make the work of graphic design company managers easy is that of developing and continually improving the company’s systems and procedures: thus ensuring that the managers are simply there to implement systems and procedures that already function well.

Key Departments That You are Likely to Find in a Big Graphic Design Company

17 October 2013 by Popeye

Big graphic design companies tend to have several departments.

One key department you are likely to find in a big graphic design company is the creative department: which is essentially the production department.

Another key department you are likely to find in a big graphic design company is the finance department.

Yet another key department you are likely to find in a big graphic design company is the marketing department. The graphic design business is extremely competitive: hence the need for a strong marketing department. In some graphic design companies, the marketing people actually end up being more esteemed (and better paid) than the ‘creatives’ doing the actual designs.

Some big-time graphic design companies also decide to set up Human Resource Management (HRM) departments. In some other graphic design companies, HR management is done online, through portals like the one used by SHO/SHC at www.88sears.com. The said portal is essentially set up for 88sears.com associates, where after undertaking the Sears employee login process, the said employees can proceed to access various bits of information pertaining to their employment at SHO/SHC. But given the fact that not everything in terms of HR management can be done online, it often becomes necessary to have a HR management team, especially if you are dealing with a huge graphic design company (with many employees).

Undertaking Graphic Design for Bank Brochures

15 October 2013 by Popeye

One of the most lucrative gigs you can take up, as a graphic designer, is that of creating brochures for a bank.

To get the job of undertaking graphic design for bank brochures, you may need to either network with the people in charge of these things at the bank or apply formally for the project. Alternatively, you may need to take part in some sort of competition, organized by the bank.

Having landed the job, you need to ensure that you get it right: otherwise you won’t get any further jobs in the future, and you may actually not even get paid for the particular job that is done shoddily.

When it comes to payment, the bank may pay you via check, or via a bank transfer to your account. But most banks nowadays seem to prefer paying for these sorts of things using direct transfers. Thus, you may just need to provide the details, and the funds will be transferred to (for instance) your citicards.com debit card, which means that they will end up in your Citi credit card account. You would then need to go to the www.citicards.com login page, after a reasonable period of time, to ensure that the funds constituting the graphic design project payment actually landed in your account.

Exploring the Three Main Considerations You Need to Make When Undertaking Graphic Design

01 October 2013 by Popeye

Graphic design looks very complicated, especially to those of us who are not artistically talented. But at the core of it, we tend to find some three simple considerations. Those are, in other words, the considerations to make, when undertaking any graphic design project.

The first consideration that you need to make, when undertaking graphic design, is the color choice consideration. This will be greatly influenced by the objectives of the graphic design project. Let’s say, for instance, that you are creating a graphic design to go with a Walmart money card review article in a magazine. The ultimate objective may be to get the viewers to consider procuring the Walmart money card sticker online. In that case, you’d have to use the sort of colors that promote the said objective: for instance, colors that, when used in the background and on the outlines, make the money card in question look attractive.

The second consideration that you need to make, when undertaking graphic design, is the layout scheme consideration.

The third consideration that you need to make, when undertaking graphic design, is the elements choice consideration. You need to select the text fonts to use carefully (if you decide to use the text as an element). You also need to select the graphics (pictures) to use carefully, again, if you decide to use the same.
