I couldn't be happier with my choice of using Elias Curtis with Transformed Design for the re-design of my genealogy blog. When I shared with him what I wanted to accomplish with this new design, it was just a matter of days after I confirmed the proposal that he sent a design mock up for my review. He was creative, efficient, and very easy to work. When his work was complete, I had a beautiful design that represents how I want to express myself and share my family research online. I highly recommend Transformed Design for anyone's website needs!

I have used A Creative Experience on over a dozen projects. They are a top notch design firm that offers excellent customer service, design quality, attention to detail & lightning fast response times. Most of our projects have been approved on the first round of concepts. If you have a timeline and you need a company that listens to you ideas and can turn them into quality graphics, this is the firm for you. I will continue to send my graphics projects to A Creative Experience, because they have quickly become my go to graphics design firm. I can’t say enough good things about them.

I retained Mr. Lee / BestDraft for the design of a corporate logo. From the outset, Mr. Lee took a high touch, consultative approach and really took the time to understand both my needs and the needs of my organization. My team and I are satisfied with the final product we received and would choose Mr. Lee / BestDraft again if a similar need arises in the future.

It was a great experience working with Arezoo; She helped us to put together a complete stationary package for our business. She did a great job with logo, business card and advertising folders. She even did a very nice package for our mini-cd. I really recommend her for any marketing and business related design. She has a great taste of contemporary design and very relible and responsible person. She put together few design alternatives and was very proactive to make sure we get what we want.

Allen and the team at breitercreative were incredible partners helping to prepare a presentation that was both visually impressive and informational for our audience. The process from concept through design was completely transparent and the milestone sessions where Allen and team revealed portions of the presentation were inspiring! breitercreative is a tremendous team that we will seek out for all our presentation and branding needs in the future. Honestly, we would not have been as successful in our campaign launch with out them!

Jordis' professionalism is great. She worked eagerly to develop some preliminary logo and design work for my company - a children's entertainment brand. She has a gift for understanding the client's need and for working as a partner in helping the client achieve long term goals and satisfaction. She is capable of providing good designs that embody the client's vision and she is very willing to take suggestions and modifications in order to get the best possible result. I recommend her.

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!!

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 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

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
