Bop Design Announces Tips for Hiring a Designer

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 10, 2013

The recently published anthology The Designer Says, as reported in Co.Design, sheds light on the creative process. While this can enhance a non-designer's appreciation of creativity, it's important to note that the process of hiring a designer is also crucial.

Bop Design, a San Diego graphic design firm, focusing on small businesses that want a team of marketing specialists to help give their brand an edge in the marketplace, has released tips on hiring a designer.

Bop Design Business Principal Jeremy Durant says, At some point in everyones career they may find themselves in need of hiring a graphic designer or being asked an opinion on samples of work during the research phase.

He continues, Before even starting your research, the organization should have a very basic idea of what they are looking for and what the company is trying to accomplish. If the organization has a crystal clear vision in mind of what they are looking for, they will never find someone to fit those exact requirements and will lose out on the possibility of an end product that exceeds those initial ideas.

There are many other elements that go along with hiring a graphic designer, but before getting into the nitty-gritty details, there are a few basic tips to researching and looking at work examples, as well as during more in-depth discussions once a team has whittled down the pack.

Design aesthetic

An organizations message, brand, personality and vision are unique so why not hire someone who will capture its essence instead of a firm who cranks out cookie-cutter, unimaginative designs.

So during initial research, do a simple review of graphic designers and ask these simple questions.

Product Launch Platform Daily Grommet Works with Graphic Designer to Feature New Product, Whooz? Identification Labels for Technology Devices

Lexington, MA (PRWEB) April 04, 2013

Daily Grommet, an online shopping site and product launch platform for innovative and undiscovered products, is working with a graphic designer to feature new Whooz? identification labels for technology devices. Daily Grommet is excited to feature this innovative, festive problem solver as it will give broad appeal to both a young and old demographic.

After Sativa Turner and a roommate had trouble telling apart their identical chargers, she thought about labeling hers with tape or permanent marker. The graphic designer in her couldnt bear to spoil the look with random markings, so she created a more aesthetic -- and much more fun -- identification system. Sativas Whooz stickers are removable vinyl labels for chargers, USB cables and earbuds. Fun designs include Rico, Cindy, Charlene and Dexter (the quirky characters Sativa created to jazz up our peripherals) or go for solid color identifiers. Each pack contains 4 sheets of labels, and each sheet has enough labels to cover one charger, USB cable, and set of earbuds.

Its not uncommon for a single household to have multiple iPhones, iPads and iPods -- which means multiple white power cords plugged into every available outlet. Shared charging stations at airports, libraries and coffee shops are a sea of identical cords, too. When youre seeing iOS accessories here, there and everywhere, Whooz makes yours different.

About Daily Grommet

Daily Grommet is a highly curated online marketplace and launch platform for products of great utility, style or invention that havent hit the big-time yet. Daily Grommet seeks out these unique products, carefully tests them, and produces a video review of each one telling the story behind its creation. Daily Grommet is rooted in the philosophy of Citizen Commerce whereby regular people form the commerce experience by suggesting products that reflect their values and interests. Citizen Commerce turns the typical top down retailer approach sideways, encourages global product innovation from small producers, and satisfies the consumers need to know the stories behind and origins of favorite products. The company was also just named one of the hottest sites of 2013 by Internet Retailer. For more information, visit
