Why You Should Hire A Female Graphic Artist


We all know how unstable some graphic artist can be in a ‘9-5’ job, some, like me get bored of creating/modifying the same design over and over, we (or maybe I) want something exciting that can push me out of my boundaries a bit and also learn new stuff/tools that will make me a better graphic artist. The cycle of a graphic artist is typically from several  ‘9 – 5’ job with agencies and even during this time some of us are working as freelance graphic artist on other jobs; to freelance graphic artist – in-house graphic artist of a company to freelance graphic artist to brand manager – art director and back to freelance graphic artist, we eventually end up as freelance artist, like me.

Being a freelance graphic artist works for me especially as I have a 6 month old and I really don’t like time restrictions, I create better designs in the evenings, I don’t know why but I do. I’m currently a freelance graphic artist with an agency, creating designs for an automobile company, it gets boring sometimes, designs are guided by rules and stuff, it’s a bit restrictive but… anyway, this story is for another day.

This article is about why working with a female graphic artist is better. I was talking to a potential client recently, she wants me to develop an online store, she explained why she would really like to work with me as previous graphic artist – males would abandon her project. She is quite specific on what she wants and I totally get her, but the process of explaining it to a graphic artist/web developer can be ‘annoying’ for some, they want a client who ‘talks less’. But as a female graphic artist, I listen attentively, ask specific questions about your project so I can understand and deliver a great job, how many male graphic artist have that patience? A few maybe.

Here are my reasons you should hire a female graphic artist:

  • They are patient and willing to listen
  • They are more professionally stable
  • They are easier to talk to
  • Females create great designs (Some people actually think I outsource my design jobs to a male artist, can’t a woman create great stuff?!)
This is my opinion though, I did not conduct any survey, just my experience as a practicing graphic artist. I’m not much of a writer so I’d end here, if anyone is interested in hiring me, my services are not exactly cheap o, if you want a logo for N5,000 please go to somolu (no offence to the somolu graphics guys).

  • Yes as a designer too,I absolutely get tired of editing my designs too many times. It totally takes the euphoric feeling out of the design process and makes the whole thing feel mundane.Lots of times I also love to do design briefs that will stretch my creativity.I also desire to up my games by learning better ways to do my work. For Graphic artists, freelance is it!
