Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Freelance Designer

Getting a great designer on board means that you need to be proactive and take control of the projects. Here are some important tips for getting the most out of your freelance designer:

  • Make sure you articulate the exact requirements of your projects and provide clear instructions to the freelancer. It's often difficult to communicate design ideas verbally, so you may have to provide some samples and inspiration to get the right design.

  • Provide regular feedback and critique the design in an honest and constructive manner. When it comes to feedback, consider the sandwich technique of starting with a positive note, giving constructive criticism, and ending with another positive comment.

  • Set realistic timelines that are achievable for both you and the freelancer. One simple way to do this is to break the project down into smaller milestones and set deadlines accordingly.

  • Be open to the designer’s ideas and suggestions. Remember, your freelancer is an expert in this domain and will be able to provide valuable insights for making your project successful.

  • Be patient when it comes to revisions and design changes. It's important to understand that revisions can take as much effort as creating the original design.

  • Communicate regularly with your designer and provide timely feedback to them. The problem with delayed feedback is that the freelancer may not be able to remember the original design and it will take more time and effort to revise the design.

  • Praise the freelancer publicly–in a group chat with your team, for example–when they do a great job and make sure to reward them with higher pay for quality work. This will show you respect their talent and hard work and motivate them to do even better.

  • Provide any specialized resources or assets to the freelancer on time. This could be specific images, fonts, or logos that you want them to use in your design. You should not expect your freelancer to take care of such resources on their own.

Guru Tip:

When you hire a freelancer, you should understand their credibility and performance. Be sure to review freelancers' all-time transaction data, services offered, and their portfolios of design work.
