When you start a business it can feel a little like having a child. You love absolutely everything about it, the same way a mother thinks that everything her child does is amazing. You may have designed a logo for your business in your favourite colours (florescent orange and green, mmmm) it and you think its the best thing ever created. In your eyes, your design is as good as anything a designer could produce.
I know that I have been blinded by business pride. I have produced leaflets and PowerPoint presentations only to look back now and think ‘what was I thinking?!’ I was blinded by the start-up love. I thought they were great, because seeing my logo projected on a screen, or my leaflet in someone else’s hand made me feel excited.
The great thing about getting started in business is that you don’t need to fork out lots of money on a corporate identity to get things off the ground. Just get started! However, there comes a point where trusting someone to brand your business and design your marketing material can pay dividends.
I remember the first time I asked a designer to produce a leaflet and some business cards for me. I realised that, although I was proud of my own efforts, seeing something professionally designed made me feel even prouder. Seeing my brief come to life and getting creative input I hadn’t considered catapulted my business into a different league. It was one of the proudest moments of growing my business.
