I feel like I have been a rather well rounded internet marketer in my time:  I do most of my own marketing, link building, SEO, PPC and even website development.  But when it comes to graphic design, I\'m completely lost.  It is a skill that I\'ve tried to develop, but my graphical instincts are just not that good.

This is common for most people.  Tools like Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Fireworks, and Adobe Illustrator can be complicated to learn.  And if after you learn them (which I have), I still struggle with my own creativity. 

Don\'t fight this. It is not worth it.

But the other problem is to find someone to do this for you that is capable and affordable.  There are freelance services like Elance which you can pick and choose your own freelance graphic designer.  Here, you can get some great bargains, but you are never sure what you are going to get. 

I have also used local designers through Craigslist, too.  I have had great success with local graphic designers, but I find they can be costly and I still have had the problems with "hit and miss" freelancers.

There are plenty of agencies online that offer graphic design services, too.  Some are big graphic houses (which much of the graphic design work is done overseas). Here, you are usually assigned a manager who relays your requests to the designers.  Sometimes information is lost in this chain, but it can also help keep time schedules on track.

Some are small, individual design houses (like TrendyeCovers).  Here, the price is usually preset, but you still work directly with the designer (which I usually prefer).

And one more tip: be sure to allows have the ability to do revisions!  In most cases, one (or even two) revisions is not enough.  When negotiating, be sure to include a revisions stipulation. 

At TheWebReviewer, I provide reviews of the graphic design freelancers and graphic design services that I regularly use.  Each service or provider has a different purpose for my graphic needs.  But at the end, there should be a solution (whether it is Do-It-Yourself or outsourcing) to fit your own design needs.
