Pros – Working with a team of designers, each designer will hold an expertise in an area of design creating a collaborative method of working. This means whatever your project consists of, you will have the best designer working on the project. This collaborative effort will make sure each element of your project is executed to perfection. If your main designer should fall ill, someone else will be there to pick up the work and make sure the deadline is met. Design agencies hold a wide range of projects in their portfolio and clients they work with, creating a partnership with them and their great reputation can be a positive impact on your brands by association.
Cons – Working with big brands, can come with a big price tag. For smaller short projects or start up brands with little budget, it may not be cost effective to work with a design agency. Communication lines are subject to their opening times within the studio, the person you talk to may not be the designer working on your project.
