We all like to think we're multitalented, good at many different things in life, but in most cases all of us have personal strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes it can be difficult to know when you need a professional graphic designer. To help you make this crucial decision, we've put together a list of the top five signs you need some help! Designing effectively is an art form as well as a science.

"Oh, Your Design is … Nice!"

Nice is good for some things in life, but when it comes to design (of an entire website, business cards, or a flier to pass around town) you want to go beyond "that's nice" and reach "Wow! That's cool!" or even more intensity if possible. When you can elicit emotions in a person who sees your design, your brand or message is going to be more memorable!

Favor From a Friend

If your brother's cousin's sister's boyfriend's nephew or niece has "mad Internet skills," it doesn't necessarily mean they're going to be able to design exactly what you need to succeed - especially if you're designing for print. While getting free help from a graphic designer may be nice for your bank account initially, there's going to come a time when the lack of a professional design may cost you a sale - i.e. revenue.

Goals Aren't Reached

Again, it doesn't matter if you're designing business cards, a company logo, or ad creatives, if you're not reaching your goals it may be time to bite the bullet and hire a professional graphic designer help make the vision in your mind a reality - in a way that will actually help your business increase revenue - or whatever your personal goals might be.

You Receive a Bad Design Award

This is a sign that things have gone too far for sure, but if you receive a mock award for your bad design or you end up in a textbook as an example of bad design, it's a very good sign that you need to seek professional help from a graphic designer. While some say there's no such thing as bad publicity, but in some cases it can really harm your brand.

Finding a Great Graphic Designer

Thanks to the Internet, getting in touch with a graphic designer is easier than ever before. Having said that, you want to make sure you work with someone who has skills and knows how to work in a professional manner. Graphic artists have a history of being difficult to work with sometimes, but you should be able to find someone who can communicate well and take your ideas to the next level. Success is found when paying attention to the details, and this means knowing when you need to call in a professional graphic designer to get the job done correctly.
