Essential Tools for a Graphic Designer

By Adam  |  10 Aug 2016 12:00:00

Wonder what he's working on?

If you want to have a successful eCommerce business, something which could be enormously beneficial to you is a graphic designer. With a graphic designer on board, you can get yourself a unique logo, create graphics to help make the site really pop and also help it to establish its own unique identity. Things like this can really help to solidify your brand identity and help to make your presence online instantly recognisable to your customers, creating a sense of trust.

 

So let's say that you've got your business off the ground and you're putting together a small team. You hire a graphic designer (and with all the banners, social media graphics and logos they could create, this is a substantial role) and you wait for them to work their creative magic. Well, they aren't going to be able to do any kind of magic if the only image manipulation software that you have is Microsoft Paint. I mean, you wouldn't sit a web designer down at a typewriter and expect them to use it to create a professional website, would you? Well, I hope not. I guess that comparison is a little unfair, because you can do the most basic of things on Paint, but you're not going to get anything special.

 

If you're going to hire a graphic designer to help aid your eCommerce business, then make sure you have some appropriate tools for them. The best thing to go for is Photoshop, because that's what is most well known and well regarded and while it is fairly costy, the fact that it is now a subscription service should be fairly beneficial. Obviously that's not the only option, there are other well regarded options like InDesign, but basically, graphic designers need the right tools as they can't create something from nothing. Hopefully with the right tools and a good graphic designer on board, your eCommerce website will really flourish but if you don't even have an eCommerce website, then sign up to Sellr now and get started for no cost at all.
