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 cannot say enough good things about this company. After having several bad experiences with designers on thumbtack, I decided to hire CE for a tri-fold brochure. Throughout the process, they were excellent at communicating and providing updates on my project. They made several large content revisions for me that they should have charged for but decided to let me have for free. I received the finished project and was blown away by the creativity, professionalism, and quality of the work. I know that this brochure will generate me thousands of dollars in the future. Thank you Frank and Susann at Creative Experience!

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.

Our home design layout is beautiful, yet challenging, as it is a large, free flowing, open space floor plan overlooking the water. Not easy to tie together for a cohesive, unified look. Yet, Mana design showed They are a visionary, displaying creativity and talent. They wealth of experience was evident as designer researched furniture, fabrics, colors, rugs, draperies, and accessories (all to perfection) tying the rooms together for a cohesive sophisticated look.

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!

I can't say enough good things about WeBrand Digital Marketing and how happy I was once I found this Company. The Company I work for needed some SERIOUS help in updating their website. I started working with another website design company and it was a complete NIGHTMARE (let's just say that after 8 months I saw nothing, was getting the run around and they kept charging me). They tried to tell me there was something on my end and in my server that was causing issues... this was not the case. Luckily I then found WeBrand Digital Marketing and that was a game changer. I explained my situation and BOOM they gave our company's website a complete new modern look and made sure everything on my server was working good. It took them less than two weeks to get EVERYTHING up and running. Our website has many many many pages and I couldn't believe my eyes when I got the news that our new website was live! My experience with WeBrand Digital Marketing has been amazing and they are so easy to work with! Whenever I need something added or changed to our website I just let them know and they take care of it very fast! If you want a company that knows what they are doing and do a great job then WeBrand Digital Marketing is for you!! 10 Stars for their customer service and work!!

My experience with contractors has not always been favorable, however, Artisan Design & Build has set a new standard of EXCELLENCE. Sidney, the head contractor, was able to understand what I wanted/needed and made suggestions that were cost efficient. Not only is the work first-rate and aesthetically appealing, he was able to complete the jobs before the deadline.

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.

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.

Emily from Webbed It did a great job in resolving issues that I was having with my company website. My website was hacked and she quickly got on the phone with me and within a day had the site up and running to its former condition. She is a professional and bright designer and would recommend her to anyone looking to revamp or create a business or personal web site.

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.

How do you find a good interior designer?

For many homeowners, the difference between a good interior designer and a bad one is simply a matter of taste — but all good designers have similar skill sets. Interior designers usually have a degree or certificate in interior design, with training in design principles and lighting, drafting, and computer aided design (CAD) software. Good interior designers have strong color balancing skills and understand how different colors influence spatial perception and moods. They know the building and electrical codes in the areas where they practice, and they make sure that any contractors they hire also work to those codes. They are knowledgeable about different upholstery fabrics and draperies, stay ahead of residential design trends, and maintain their own individual creativity. Also, good interior designers have excellent space designing skills, so they can arrange a space efficiently and with ideal traffic flow. Ultimately, hiring a good interior designer means pinpointing one whose signature style is complementary to your personal style — so checking out many designers’ portfolios is a must — and whose communication methods match yours.

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.

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
