When it comes to design, figuring out the right direction for you and your business can be tough. Do you hire a designer? Do you try to handle things in house? Do you rummage through your attic, dust off your Super Nintendo, and see if your Mario Paint skills are just as impressive as they were in 1994?

The truth is, there are plenty of paths you can take when it comes to design. Some paths will lead the way to awesome, on-brand designs that help take your business to the next level while others will steer you towards dead ends filled with generic templates, Photoshop disasters, and a whole lot of wasted time, energy, and cold-hard cash.

So which path are you going to take?

We put together this flow chart to help you visualize the different directions you can take with your design—and which direction is going to take you and your business where you want to go. It’s like “Choose Your Own Adventure”… just with design.
