Houston Staffing Guide: Design
The demand for creative goods and services in Houston reaches into the billions. In fact in the mid-2010s, it grew from $5 billion a year to more than $20 billion.
That’s a huge number that encompasses many different aspects of the creative economy. But the fact is, if you’re looking for creative talent in Houston, you will be angling with other companies for the same talent.
No, Houston does not have the reputation of Austin for creative talent, meaning that artists, graphic designers, art directors, copywriters, creative directors and others may be in short supply within Houston.
What does that mean for you? It’s going to be difficult to find creative workers. The demand is outstripping the supply.
And if you’re in need of creative design talent to fix your website, redesign brochures, add to your marketing collateral, or design a new logo and run an ad campaign, it may be best to turn to outside help.
One way to make your next creative hire or to expand your design team is to turn to a creative staffing agency in Houston. These creative agencies have the expertise and years of experience to make the judgment calls you may not be able to make: especially around graphic design skills, branding, illustration, and web design.
If you’re a busy employer, you may not have the time to search for top job candidates, conduct interviews, or be assured that the talent they seek will excel in certain positions or office culture.
To speed up the hiring process plus guarantee a highly qualified candidate perfect for an open position, staffing agencies for design talent may be the solution for a business or organization.
A creative design staffing agency helps employers staff creative roles, including short- and long-term staffers, individual freelancers, or entire teams.
They can connect with their networks to find designers and developers that are close to you. If your office is in the Woodlands, it would not make sense to connect with a designer in Katy. The commute would be devastating. A creative staffing agency can connect you with candidates in your local region or help you work out a remote working option to tap into talent within Greater Houston, and commuting down I-10 or I-45 only a few days a week.
A Houston design staffing agency will be great at identifying an employer's project requirements and connecting the employer to talented creative candidates.
