As a designer and artist myself, I probably have a different appreciation of Kerry's skills than most. His patience as I was thinking, and collaborative mindset were amazing. Not surprising - he has a design degree! Kerry is also very skilled with carpentry and careful in the home. Top that with his willingness to run over at the drop of a hat over a weekend, punctual arrival, steady demeanor, fair pricing and outstanding customer service, there will be no reason for me to ever search again when needing similar services.

If you are skeptical about selecting a graphic designer from the internet, don't be! Elias and his team ARE WONDERFUL! Before I met Elias, I interacted with two other designers. Things didn't pan out for various reasons. At times, communication was skewed. I believe that when there's push-back or resistance, you should always let go and be guided from within. This is what I did. I posted a Thumbtack ad and Elias was one of the first to reach out. I loved his professional approach and definitely his professional profile with all the creatively designed work. I reached out to Elias, and from that day onward he was responsive, answering all questions immediately! There was not a day that went past, which I reached out and he didn't reach back that same day. We spoke on the phone once, so he could get a clear understanding of my start-up business and things I needed done (App icon, Logo, and Ebook cover). Afterwards, we communicated by email and any explanations or revisions I requested, he understood and delivered great work each time. If you are considering doing business with Elias and want to get more insight on his style, read his reviews! That's what really captured my attention! And, if you do business with him, leave him a review - pay it forward, because truthfully this (aside from his creatively designed profile) was the deciding factor, which influenced me to work with him. Would I hire him and his team again? Dog-on RIGHT! He's amazing, professional, quick, and very responsive.

I had a lady come by for the initial estimate. Her name was Jaeleah. She was an estimate manager. She was very nice and asked a lot of questions and took down a lot of notes and even left me with a business card. From there within the hour I received an email regarding the estimate and availability. I then, had a scheduling manager contact me to confirm details and day along with time. On the day of the actual clean up, I had a lead landscaper by the name of Catarino ( Cat for short) come with a young man named Kevin, Cat did not speak perfect English but he could communicate and tried very hard, Kevin spoke perfect English and helped me to confirm what I thought Cat was saying. The guys started the job which consisted of removing grass and weeds on a 3500 sq foot lot. I figured it would take the guys 2 days to do that kind of job. When I got home after work around 6pm the guys were actually finishing up. I mean, I was shocked. I walked the lot with them and we went over ideas and I mean I was so amazed by how hard and fast they got this job done. As soon as my husband gets back in town we are going to confirm what our next plant of action will be. Cat recommended I install new more drought resistant sod along with some gorgeous flowers he showed me that compliment the color of my home really well. He even showed me pictures of other sod and landscape designs he has done in the past and the work was exquisite. For the quality of work these guys provide and the professionalism these guys could easily be charging double if not triple the prices they charge. I am thankful I found you guys. Thanks for all the hard work you all did for us! We are excited for whats to come.

I have used Scott Gressitt of San Diego Furniture Repair on several occasions and will continue to do so. His work product is superb. In this day and age finding a Craftsman that is honest, trustworthy, prompt, consistently providing superior workmanship st good value is s rarity. I will continue to use and recommend him to family, friends and other interior designers

We have a very unique luxury design project in the marine and yachting industry. It proved very difficult to find a qualified interior/exterior designer, who is not only experienced in commercial hospitality projects (upscale bars/nightclubs/restaurants), but is also willing to learn and expand into a new space, filled with unique naval constraints, and a myriad of rules and regulations! Fadi Soudi not only delivered on the project milestones, but went above and beyond to make several revisions to the design, based on project goals, budgets, and construction limitations, as they unfolded. The 3D renderings speak for themselves, in terms of quality, accuracy, and attention to detail. Mr. Soudi is innovative, open to new ideas, a pleasure to work with, and most importantly, delivers as promised. I would highly recommend him, and will certainly be working with him on our upcoming projects.

We hired Arlet to help recreate our new marketing collateral. Not only did she do an amazing job but she also was very responsive. Unlike some other designers we've used she provided excellent service, a quick turnaround and high quality work! We will definitely use her creative services going forward.

My husband and I have never worked with a man interior designer before. We had wanted to for some time but were hesitant to do so. After reading the many great reviews about Michelle we both felt like if anyone can help us out our home together (with mine and my husbands taste being vastly different) it would be her. From the moment we met her, she was so easy to work with. She was always in contact about ideas, potential furniture or art pieces and amazingly stayed within our budget. She was so responsive and it seemed like she was working day and night to find us exactly what we wanted. She also surprised us with many beautiful items that we would have never been able to pick out or come up with on our own. She has a real gift and a wonderfully creative eye. Our friends absolutely love how our house looks and we truly do too! We cannot recommend her enough! Thanks again Michelle!

Brooke Williams is a rock star! I have been working on my home improvement project (Dining, Living and Bedrooms) for over a year when I finally decide I need some professional assistance. I choose Brooke as my designer after interview several other designers. I was hesitance based on her hour rate (much more reasonable then other designers) but I have been pleasantly surprise with her knowledge, professionalism and ability to listen. She has done a wonderful job on my home and has completed the project within 2 months timeframe I requested. I am looking forward to using her on my next home improvement project.

Spencer was great to work with! I let him know what I wanted and within a few hours he sent me a mock up. We talked about how to change it, ideas for the future, and he gave me a rocking design that I can use. You can't ask for better than that!

Cassie is currently helping me with furniture selection and arrangement for a new house. Cassie came out on short notice and measured and photographed all my rooms and came up with several design ideas within that same day. She really listens to her clients and strives to meet their vision while respecting the budget. She is a pleasure to work with and I will update with photos when the project is done but she has already exceeded my expectations.

MRB Media did a wonderful job on my web site. I am very happy with the design and how it turned out. I have them design all my marketing material also. I am particularly impressed with their continued help and support. If I ever notice something funny or a broken link on my web site I just shoot them an email with the issue and Boom! It's fixed. Awesome.

Terri is a very personable and highly professional graphic designer. I very much enjoyed developing my business logo with her. She produced several image themes for me to choose from, and each design was so good and effective that I actually had some trouble with my final choice! I now have a very eye-catching, imaginative and unique logo that says what I want it to say. It was such a pleasant and positive experience..I would really recommend Terri very highly.

Over the years, James has designed the interior of three homes for me! I can honestly say, he embodies the meaning of professionalism - organized, accountable, responsive, and he works with so much integrity, which is an incredibly important value to me. And, he is probably the most talented designer I have ever encountered! Each time, he stayed within my budget, went out of his way to make things work when I gave him seemingly impossible restrictions, and always delivered what I needed in a timely fashion that exceeded my aesthetic expectations. For my most recent home, I gave him a very specific budget and a "beachside cottage" concept. He found every piece of furniture for me within my budget, and even helped me lay out exactly where my existing artwork could go. The deliverable was so methodical, comprehensive and sensibly laid out. He had thought of everything! When people visit my home, they always comment on how aesthetically calm and beautiful it is to be in the space, but also how logically the furniture and art arranged. I couldn't have done this without him and would recommend him to anyone. His talent surpasses boundaries. His creativity and imagination are so robust that he is able to conceive of such a diversity of concepts. I am so impressed by him and thankful for all his help over the years. Not only has he made my moving and designing processes less stressful, he has made my life and living space more beautiful! Thank you, James!

    Stephanie at Grandview Collective was awesome. I received messages from several talented designers, but looking at Stephanie's previous work, I decided her aesthetic was closest to mine. She was wonderful to work with and had great communication. We worked together to create just the right look for my logo, palette, patterns, and branding. I'm so happy with the end products, and I would be happy to work with Stephanie again. I highly recommend her!

    Finally, someone who gets my style !!! I love color and mixing design styles and after years of being told I “probably could not afford” the decorating I was asking for, I was wrong for mixing contemporary with traditional, I needed to use less color, and other comments, I feel lucky that I found Elena! It has been more than a year since we started working together to update my home. I love decorating and sometimes know exactly what I am looking for but can’t always describe it. Elena works with me, helping to transform the vision of what I want, not what she thinks I need or should have for my home. She also will select items I would have never thought of picking for myself and when that happens, WOW !

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    Why should you hire a web designer?

    Your website is often the first thing your customers see when they’re searching for a business or service on the web. As the face of your organization, your website needs to be attractive and functional, offering the latest features that users now expect. To plan and design a site that both reflects your company’s mission and values and appeals to customers takes a professional web designer. While free online services can help people set up websites, web designers can provide a unique solution made specifically to meet customers’ personal or business needs.

    Most web designers offer a wide variety of services to make your website aesthetically pleasing and easy to use. Modern web design must be mobile-friendly and scalable, capable of expanding to include a blog, social media sites, and even video streaming; web designers are experts at integrating various web technologies. They can build the site, add functionality, test it, launch it on a live server, and track and maintain its performance.

    In addition to web design and graphic design, some web design providers also offer development and security services, including search engine optimization (SEO), social media marketing and management, logo design, site maintenance, domain registration and hosting, protection against malware, and digital marketing and content services.

    What do interior designers do?

    Interior designers do much more than pick complementary paint colors and choose matching furniture — although those tasks are important parts of the job. Unlike decorators, interior designers usually have an associate of science degree or certificate of achievement in interior design from an accredited program. They’re trained in drafting, lighting and computer aided design (CAD), and are experts in room-specific design and residential space planning. Interior designers use these skills to plan and design safe, highly functional and beautiful interior spaces, from kitchens and bathrooms to family rooms and bedrooms. They determine space requirements, work within building codes and inspection regulations, and meet accessibility standards. An interior designer’s day-to-day job includes creative and technical tasks, both of which often require great communication skills:

    • Creating model rooms and visuals using design software.
    • Researching different textiles, materials, finishes, lighting and furniture.
    • Hiring suppliers, vendors, and contractors.
    • Estimating costs and making bids on potential jobs.

    What should you look for in a website designer?

    A professional web designer creates the look and feel of your website, collaborating with you to choose colors, creating logos and other branding materials, establishing page layouts, and creating sample pages. An important part of web design is making sure the site is functional, meets your goals, and is easy for users to navigate. When you’re looking to hire a web designer, start by reviewing the person’s portfolio. Look for samples of work that match what you envision for your website, including experience building the types of pages or features you want. Make sure the web designer is familiar with your industry and understands both industry trends and web design trends — an old-fashioned or out-of-touch site will turn customers away rather than intrigue them.

    Because web designers tend to work as freelancers on a project basis, they must be excellent communicators, willing to manage their own work, and available on your schedule. Some critical skills, such as working collaboratively and responding enthusiastically to feedback, aren’t core to good web design, but make working with a web designer much easier. Finally, look for a web designer who has cross-functional knowledge, such as understanding marketing and conversion rate optimization in addition to web design.

    How much do web designers charge?

    The average cost for hiring a web designer varies greatly depending on the scope of the work, which may range from building a site from scratch to rebranding an existing one, as well as the amount of content and graphics the designer will create. In general, the more complex the project, the more time the design agency will have to spend. Because web designers often work on an hourly basis, the longer the project, the higher the costs; you can count on the web designer spending at minimum 10 hours to create a very basic website with just a handful of pages with few elements. Prices also depend on the designer’s skill set, the process, and the company’s rates. In general, the national average cost for a basic website package starts at $500, but a customized website can cost as much as $2,000 or more. Here are typical average hourly rates, broken out by the complexity of the work:

    • Basic layout and user interface: $15-$40 per hour
    • Content management system design: $20-$50 per hour
    • Custom website design with custom code: $45-$75 per hour

    What makes a good logo design?

    A good logo is an easily identifiable, memorable image that represents your brand. A good logo design aligns with your business model and expresses your company’s core values. A good logo design is simple, appealing, and easy for customers and viewers to quickly process. Some of the key components of a great logo are type, color palette and design. The scale, font and arrangement of the text you select will all make a difference in the feel and representation of your brand. A graphic designer will help you home in on the colors that best represent your identity and help you keep the color palette simple. The design of your logo includes the shapes you select and the way the color and type are arranged together. Investing in the services of a professional to create your logo design is likely a smart investment for any size business. Nationally, the average price range for a logo designer ranges from $170 to $250.
