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.

Choon is fantastic. I had a quick deadline for a graphic I needed for a client, and he was extremely responsive and helpful. After just a few conversations, I could tell that he really understood the concept I was trying to illustrate and was able to make a great graphic. It's hard to find designers that can think creatively but also professionally, and Choon nailed it! Thank you so much for your work.

If Thumbtack allows users to more stars, I would grade Maha for 10/10! Before our project started, we interviewed almost 20 contractors and Maha is the only one provided the professional in-depth site analysis with very detailed bidding with all items broken down into material and labor as well as the amazing schedule analysis (and we did have the project finished prior to the original projection date). Thru out he entire project process, Houman (owner of Maha) was showing all his professionalism into all the detail and he was on-site everyday working with his crew, providing prompt update and honest suggestion in all area. He also provided very helpful weekly progress summary that help me to show to my management for the update. The entire crew was all professional, friendly, and showing their care to the premise owner every moment. Communication is 10/10 as well. At the end of the project, I noticed some additional item that I omitted earlier, and Houman was able to help me on those as well altho he didn't have to, all respect for that. I definitely will come back to Maha again if I have another project coming, also recommend them to anyone looking for professional and sincere designer/contractor.

Flawless. We gave Cori quite a challenge . To paint the essence of our theme party as it was happening. She was exceptional. Our art piece is all we had hoped for. More importantly her and her husband have remarkable work ethic, while being flexible and down to earth. Talented, creative, and easy to work with. The BUDDENBROCKS

We are still in the designing stage of my logo, but working with Jon has been an absolute pleasure! I can't imagine what a headache it must be to be asked to do so many things over and over again, to be asked for intangible things that can't be explained or to fix something and make it just so. But Jon is always super awesome, so happy to help and truly takes pride in his ability to get you closer and closer to your dream logo. He's absolutely wonderful and I would recommend him whole-heartedly at the drop of a hat! Thank you so much Jon, for everything! :D

It was a pleasure working with Sherry and Marc I dont know where to start. Both are very knowledgeable in there fields and they took a personal interest to guarantee we were satisfied with all our tile, cabinet and floor work. They were accommodating to all the changes we made during our project. We have hired them for several other jobs since and will continue to do so and refer them to family and friends. They provide superior quality craftsmanship and offer full service from design, project supervision, and technical expertise from style to material.  It's been a joy to work with them both . What I admire about them most is that they puts there clients needs first and make every effort to adjust and accomodate and make the construction process move smoothly. Working with them was a pleasure.

Arash designed our living/dining space for us. He spent a lot of time understanding our style and going over our house in detail. In the first meeting, we spent over 4 hours just discussing design possibilities. We particularly liked how easy it was to work with him. He returned calls promptly, was quick to provide ideas, and took our feedback seriously. In the end, he designed custom sofas for us and ordered dining chairs/art/mirror pieces. He really elevated the look of our space from college-like to contemporary. The quality of the pieces he brought in were great. As a note, expect a long lead time for custom pieces. While they take a long time to arrive, the quality is great and you get a unique piece to show off.

I hired Michael to do a jewelry shoot for my retail business and unlike 6 other photographers that I interviewed, Michael easily understood my budget and what I wanted to accomplish with my pictures. Working with him was like working with a friend, he listened well and my pictures could not have turned out any better. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a photo shoot done right in an enjoyable environment.

One of the best experiences I have had with a graphic designer. I've used FIVERR, ZILLIONDESIGNS, local designers, etc...& NONE delivered what I wanted, in the time that I wanted at the price that I wanted in the time that I wanted. Ahmed delivered on all 3 counts + his work was FAR superior. I would recommend him to ANY & EVERYBODY that values my opinion & taste. Cannot say enough good things about him. Professional, timely, affordable, kind, respectful, & talented. I'm a fan!!

They did it all, Thank you Falcon!

Gobro is the best way to go when it comes to getting a website done. They were committed and made sure that I was very satisfied with my website. Unlike some web developers, Erik always took the time to hear my issues and found ways to resolve them. He is attentive and really wants me to succeed. His staff also worked hard on my website. Although it’s taking a little longer than I had anticipated, I and very happy with my site. They are reliable and honest company. Wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Words cannot suffice in terms of how Dar has truly blessed our family! I interviewed at least 5 interior designers and Dar’s level of experience, attention to detail, and referrals far exceeded anyone else. I greeted him with a hug when I first saw him because he has this joyful magnetic glow that makes you feel like he is a really good friend. Dar is very punctual; he shows up exactly at the time he gives you and he does not rush you. He is knowledgeable, very attentive, and incredibly patient (we would sometimes have multiple hour meetings). He worked around our schedule with our little ones and never complained about the long hours he put in or how meticulous we were in the designing phase. We enjoyed working with Dar so much that we hired him to stage our house, which put our house over the top in a competitive market. I cannot wait to bring him on board to give our new home the “Dar touch”!

I love working with NXT Design. Not only does their team always bring talented designers to the table, but NXT Design can help to solidify an overall brand experience. This was crucial to us as our shared office spaces rely on a strong brand experience in each location. We always hire NXT Design to create the look and feel of all of our offices. They've created a standard for our brand as we continue to expand. NXT Design is also flexible and very easy to work with. They understand branding and design, as well as the construction and development side of it. NXT Design created several craft furniture pieces for us that added a quality custom look we needed. They are also able to assist with quality control of build out of our spaces. We're so grateful for all of their help.

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.

Unlike many other Organizations, 4See does exactly what the name indicates. Although we are a smaller contractor, with Basem's assistance, we were able to develop a professional image in a short time frame. Basem is responsive and produces work that is professional and relevant. He strives to understand your business and is one of a few who actually listened to us. I highly recommend 4See if you are looking for that million dollar image at a good value! We were only looking for some help with a Logo Design and a brochure. 4See not only helped us with our Logo and brochures, some of the other products they provided included: - Building and maintaining our website - Advertising Door magnets for our vehicles - Pens with our Logo and information and other promotion items - Door Hangers to promote our business - Presentation Folders with a custom design - Trade Show Banner Displays (with beautiful high resolution!) - Developing marketing programs, etc. - Yard Signs - A Giant Display Banner - Business cards - custom designed

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.
