It is necessary to shop around and compare brochure design prices, for one very important reason. All brochure designers set their own fees. So the same brochure could be produced by 2 separate agencies, and the difference in price is thousands.
Are brochures in the digital era still necessary? Brochures are used all the time to showcase products, communicate information about services, introduce the business and act as sales and marketing material. Even in the internet world, they are used in large quantities by companies of all types across all industry sectors.
Brochure design prices would depend on a few different things:
The more exotic materials are used more for promotions of new products or unique one offs). Brochure design prices will be higher for more exotic materials however.
There are thousands of brochure designers around the UK, so finding one will be easy. Try typing ‘brochure design’ into Google and you will get thousands of hits. However finding the right one may not be as easy. Normally companies look for designers to meet a certain criteria:
It is advised to meet with a brochure designer in order to get a feel for the agency. Generally you can get a feel for the culture of the company when you visit them and meet with the staff. If you are going to trust them do produce a great design for you, you do need to have confidence in their abilities. This does link into them understanding your industry and company. If you meet with them, you can see them face to face and get a feel for if they really understand what you are after (as opposed to them just saying the understand in an e-mail). It is important for the designer to really understand your business and product/services. As they will be communicating your message, how can they do this effectively if you are just ‘another client’ and they do not really understand you?
All graphic designers are different, from different backgrounds and experiences. Some designers have experience with the corporate world, some with more arty/cartoon/animation and some with more landscape. Finding the right agency to handle your project is important. If you are a professional company serving corporates, then there is no logic in you working with a designer that specialises in animations and cartoon drawing. Fees vary also, brochure design prices tend to be higher with larger agencies.
Rather than spending time looking through websites and portfolios, it would be quicker to use one service to select all of your criteria (as above) and then within a few minutes, to get quotes from local agencies for you to compare. No obligation, no cost and saving you time.
