It was truly a pleasure working with Choon and his Best Draft team. He is extremely talented, very respectful, quick to respond, and his work speaks for itself. I've worked with many designers before, and Choon is one-of-a-kind. I will absolutely use Best Draft again and would recommend them to anyone and everyone!

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.

Kanga creative! I hired these guys at Kanga creative to do web design for a realtor-centric website. They did a great job and after analyzing the numbers, I am receiving about 25% more customers per month. The guys at Kanga and ultra-professional and transparent to do business with. I have also hired them to do my marketing and graphic design because I was so happy with the work they did on my web design. I would HIGHLY recommend them if you want to grow your online side of your business. 5 STARS.

Rick has cared for our computers for several years. He set up our net work and installed out specialized software. Rick is very polite and takes time to explain. We have other "geeks" here and we would never call them back. Rick has solid knowledge and is very good at diagnosing problems and finding solutions. He is also very fair in his pricing. We at Great American Financial Services recommend Rick highly.

    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!

      Nick managed the residential redevelopment of two of our projects. This included project design, city permitting, sub-contractor interviews, budgeting, timeline and project management. His attention to detail is outstanding. Both of these projects were highly successful and we look forward to using him again on our next project. John DiGiacomo, Equitas Property Development.

      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 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 do you look for in a web design company?

      The web design company you choose must be able to interpret your company’s mission and identity and turn it into an appealing website that connects with potential customers. They must help you reach your target audience and meet your business goals. A web design agency should have on staff both talented web designers, with fresh ideas and extensive technical and creative skills, and a marketing team that knows how to drive traffic to your site, encourage visitor engagement, and convert visitors into customers. Web designers should be able to build in search optimization and integrate your site with a content management system and e-commerce tools. Look, too, for a website design company that understands responsive design and can optimize your website for mobile devices and desktop browsers. The right web design company understand current design and website trends, has experience building sites in a variety of industries (not just yours), and has an expansive portfolio of live websites. Finally, don’t simply hire the cheapest bidder — in web design, as in all things, you get what you pay for.

      How do you hire a web designer?

      You’ve determined that the best way to create a professional, modern, mobile-friendly new website is to hire a professional web designer to build it. To hire the best person for the job — and to get the web design that best fits your company’s identity — it’s important to ask a few key questions:

      • What’s the scope of the work? Will the website be basic with just a few pages about your company, its services, and contact information? Or will it also have an e-commerce section for online shopping, a blog, or content for visitors to download? Before you hire a web designer, make sure you have a thorough, specific list of the components you must have the designer include in the web design.
      • What do you want your website to look like? Consider websites that are similar to the one you’d like to build, ideally in the same industry or serving similar types of customers. Build a set of examples of types of pages, design aspects, and website features that you can hand off to the web designer — the person you hire should have experience creating websites with the features you want. If they don’t have the right skill set, they’re not the right pro for you.
      • What’s the web designer’s start-to-finish process? What will the final deliverable be? Before you hire someone, make sure their availability works with your timeline and that their process meets your expectations. Most important is finding a web designer who will work collaboratively with you to create a successful online presence.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
