It can sometimes be tempting to go for a DIY option when it comes to the graphics of your website - how bad could it get? However, here are just three reasons that will leave you wondering whether the DIY approach to graphic design is worth it.
1. Good design enhances your professionalism and authenticity
Have you ever gone to a restaurant and realised the photos of food look fake? It makes you instantly question the authenticity of the business. This is what happens when businesses cut corners on graphic design - your audience will notice, and not in the way you'd hope.
They will notice when you've invested in a professional logo design or art image as your logo, and they will also notice when a graphic looks outdated or pixelated. In order to grab your audience and instil confidence in them, you can't cut corners. Having thoughtful graphics helps remove any doubts about your business.
From typography to photography to logo design, ensuring you are providing the right design elements will improve your business’s authenticity.
2. It presents a personality for your business
Your customers get to know you through the type of media you share, whether that's your blog, website or social media account. Quality design enhances the uniqueness of your business and what it has to offer; this then helps build a relationship with your target audience and key customers. It allows you stand out positively and leads to a professional look for your work.
3. It helps create a clutter free area
When you use clean and clever graphic design, you’ll notice that simplicity is key. Good graphic design is creating a clean cut look and when the details are always intentional and thoughtful, you’re left with something that looks great on your website.
Cleaning up your clutter will not only look good but help with responsiveness, page load speeds on your platform, and allow for adjustments and updates as your business develops.
