Outsource graphic designers to the Philippines


What is a graphic designer?

Graphic designers use computer design software to create visual content that communicates an organisation’s product, service or brand to potential and existing customers. They also need to ensure that while attracting target markets, they are also maintaining brand identity and tone in the materials they create. 

Graphic designer duties and tasks can include:

  • Liaising with key stakeholders, marketing teams and the broader business as required to understand design concept and objective so they can bring it to life
  • Adjusting designs to accommodate for advertising or marketing platforms including printed and digital materials
  • Managing and updating the organisation’s brand guidelines - ensuring consistency and accuracy in its use across all materials 
  • Liaising with web developers on implementation of digital design elements.

These marketing tasks are particularly well-suited to being outsourced. Organisations free up their local marketing teams’ time by sending these tasks to outsourced graphic designers. This allows your onshore team to focus on performing higher value, revenue generating work.


What key skills and qualifications make a great graphic designer?

Graphic designers need to be creative, no surprise there. However, just as much as they need to create attention-grabbing visuals, they also need to ensure the creative resonates with the intended audience. They need to be able to undertake positive criticism from project managers and marketing specialists, even if their original concept needs to be changed to meet stakeholder requirements. Keeping on top of design trends and changes to a businesses brand identity is essential. 

Outsourcing services recruit graphic designers the same way an internal, talent acquisition team would. Essentially, they ask the same questions to understand whether these offshore candidates would be able to provide the level of quality required by Australian organisations:

  • What experience and knowledge do you have working as a graphic designer or in a similar marketing design function?
  • How familiar are you with analysing visual market trends and applying them to projects or campaigns?
  • Do you have a portfolio of work you can share?
  • How do you ensure excellent communication when liaising with relevant stakeholders, to emulate their design vision?
  • What organisation and project management tools have you used?
  • Provide an example of how you showcased a high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
  • What design software and tools are you familiar with? Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign?

In terms of qualifications, a higher education degree or certificate in graphic design or design is essential. Outsourcing companies can help you find the right candidate to meet your organisation's marketing requirements by hiring these qualified designers who create visual content to meet the marketing campaign and project design requirements of your business.

Benefits of outsourcing graphic designer roles

Organisations are able to appreciate the added benefits that come from offshoring graphic designer duties to the Philippines, including:

  • Increased employee satisfaction
