Make a Strong First Impression
Everybody knows how important first impressions are. Now let's think about that. We know that about 90% of what we consciously take in is visual. We also know you only have a seven second window to make a first impression. So as a business, you want to use everything at your disposal to make sure you make a strong first impression!
Graphic design is everywhere. It plays a huge role in our lives. From the products we use, to what we read, to how we find our way around the world. If it has type on it, you know it was put there with a purpose.
Good Design Converts
A slick brochure or website is nice to have. A slick brochure website that generates business is even nicer. Design isn’t about making things look pretty — effective design should entice and persuade. A well-designed brochure engages the reader and delivers results. A smartly designed website can direct visitors to take action, like clicking a “buy” button for instance. Professional graphic design has the potential to deliver measurable results for a business.
The Value of Design for Business
When the Design Management Institute and Motiv Strategies analyzed the performance of US companies committed to design as an integral part of their business strategy they found a significant improvement to the bottom line.
The study showed that over a 10 year period design-led companies have maintained significant stock market advantage, outperforming the S&P by an extraordinary 211%.
