A designer is someone who designs something before it’s even made, usually by sketching out plans or drawings. These types of designer often work with architects or constructors, and are also called draftsman. A designer will have a reputation for coming up with original ideas and putting them in visual form.
Designers range in ability from very good to excellent. The more design work they do, the more they will earn per hour. However, if you take an average designer and compare his/her hourly earnings to the amount of work required, it will be clear to see that the more design work done per hour, the less money the designer makes per hour. So designers range in experience from absolute beginner to absolute expert.
It can be very helpful to find a good designer to use. If you’re a beginner, then asking questions at each step of the process is very useful and will help you to become more knowledgeable about the design work you’re undertaking. It’s also useful to find an independent professional, such as an interior designer, so that you can ask questions to which you can respond or have answers to.
Some designers ranges specialize in particular fields, like web design, fashion marketing, advertising, interior design etc. Other designers will have a mix of all different areas. Generally speaking, the more experience a designer has, the more diverse his/her talents and abilities are. However, there are some designers who excel in one particular field, such as web designers, fashion designers, advertising designers etc., and those are the designers that you should strive to find and hire.

Commonly, they will be responsible for drafting floor plans, hiring workers, managing budget etc. If a designer gets so involved with the daily work, then he/she will become the primary designer, and the primary designer will be someone who is not an “inventor” and who has done the initial planning and budgeting. The primary designer may be the person that does all the hiring (even though the interior designer actually completes most of the work), designs the layouts, makes sure everything fits together in the correct way, supervises the workers etc. You should try to find an individual that knows a lot about the products you’re selling, and who will be able to answer your questions quickly.
When it comes to industrial designers, you are looking for a different individual. Most industrial designers are responsible for designing large-scale manufacturing facilities, like car dealerships and industrial manufacturers, but there are also some that work on a smaller scale for specialized companies. Industrial designers range from those that are highly skilled artisans, working in areas such as fashion design, to people that are highly trained technical personnel. In general, they’re more detail-oriented, and more mathematical in nature, with an emphasis on technology. Here are the four types of designer you need to hire:
