Why is graphic design so important when it comes to the message you are sending?
Imagine that people looked at your marketing material as a reflection of your business. An unprofessional logo is like a dirty shirt and the first thing people notice. Spelling mistakes might convey you don't pay attention to detail. A cluttered design might say that you are disorganised. Rushed adverts perhaps reflect that you rush through your work.
Take a minute and look at your logo, your corporate identity, and your advertising materials and imagine what they might be telling your potential clients about you.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE MOST FREQUENTLY-REQUESTED DESIGN ITEMS
If a logo was part of your body, it would be your face. It’s one of the first things people notice when they “meet” you and honestly, a thing that influences if people want to spend more time with you.
Now, you can’t choose what your face looks like, but luckily you can choose your logo. Don’t spend more time wondering why people avoid you. Let’s create a stunning logo for you and put a smile on your and your client’s face.
Corporate identity design
Where your logo is the starting point for your corporate identity, the rest is also crucial. Suppose you can look at this one like a hamburger. Your logo is the nice, delicious, juicy patty. On its own, it tastes like a fantastic meatball. Put it inside a soft bun with onion rings, lettuce, tomato and sauce, THEN you have a burger.
The other parts of your corporate identity would be to decide on fonts, colours, layouts and small design elements; and then applying these to a blank page to create letterheads, compliment slips, business cards and MUCH, MUCH more.
Corporate identity is the link between your logo, your marketing and promotional material and your website.
Business card design
Long after someone has forgotten what you, or even what your face (see logo description) looks like OR if they’ve never met you and just happen to come across your business card; you have a way of creating a new a visual image in their minds. Your business card is a gentle reminder to contact you and engage in business with you.
Let’s be honest - a boring business card won’t entice anyone into getting in touch with you.
Marketing materials design
Apart from a website, there are many way's to makrket your business. You can use flyers, brochures, booklets, leaflets, tri-folds, pull-up banners, exhibition stands, posters and so much more.
They can come in all shapes and sizes andc an serve as a take-away menu, a brochure, a portfolio on an information sheet. There are so many ways in which to utilize these and we want to help.
DezignZA can help you create marketing materials that are engaging, beautiful and professional. Something that your clients would like to pick up and read again and hopefully push them towards the action of contacting you.
Photo retouching might sound like it needs to be under the photography section on the dezingZA website, however it’s much more of an art form to retouch photographs than anything with the photography itself.
Here we take out blemishes, repair broken photographs, even going as far as replacing teeth.
If you have photos that need to be fixed or altered, you’ve come to the right place. With our careers in professional photography studios and 5 years of wedding photography, our designers retouched more that a million photos.
Often our clients require some 3D work for their marketing campaigns. The most obvious time is when a new properly developer wants to launch and needs a 3D render of what the apartment would look like. This helps to sell the properties as it gives the buyers the unique opportunity to see the home before it’s even built.
3D rendering is also used in the creation of marketing material and the design of a fancy-looking logo.
