I had gone through several graphic artists previously, but realized that I needed to meed with the artist in person since I knew exactly what I wanted and communicating by email wasn't cutting it. Choon Lee came a long way to meet me at my office, completed the work very quickly, and was very responsive to my requests to change the first mockups. Couldn't ask for more.

I started a band and needed some really great high res photos to work with in photoshop. We needed a variety of settings and looks so that I could play around with ideas for print and online media. After speaking with a few different photographers we chose Hailley because I could tell she looked at the shoot from an artists perspective. From the moment we started shooting she gave really fantastic creative input which really drove the direction of the shots. We were able to bounce ideas off each other which really made the band come out of their shells and feel a part of that creative process. She also had no problem shooting around Santa Monica then heading to the beach for an impromptu shoot. After the day of shooting Hailley did some really great follow up by posting some of the low res images to dropbox so we could pick out some of our favorites. I'm a graphic designer myself so I gave her my picks of the high resolution images I wanted so that she could send them to me and I could manipulate them myself. A couple of weeks later she gave me a call to see how everything was going and to see if I needed any additional prints, photos, or enhancing done, which I REALLY appreciated. Overall she was everything we needed in a photographer: professional, creative, had great follow through AND she was ON TIME for everything, which in the artist world is key! ;)

​Sabina Islam and her team met every objective we've given them. They by far surpassed my expectations. She was always good at bringing new things to our attention, and stay on top of what's going on in the industry.

We are waiting for our digital/DVDs from our event to arrive, but I can say without hesitation that Terry Hanson is incredibly professional, responsive and responsible. He arrived at our event early to set up and to scope out the lay of the land. In fact, our director thought so highly of him, Terry will be shooting all of our future theater performances!

Production value and professionalism are through the roof. They don't gouge you on budget, which makes them accessible to artists without big studio budgets, even though they still deliver big studio quality productions.

Mark of KD Studios is a very easy going and approachable professional. We started by discussing just a few of my very basic concepts and the ultimate uses and goals for the photos I was requesting. By the end of the discussion, Mark had contributed some valuable insights through his past experience and artistic talents. I was very comfortable that Mark was taking this project in the right direction. In just a short day or two, Mark had submitted some concept photos for review. I was very pleased with these results and he completed the entire job in a very patient, responsive and timely manner. I am now following up with Mark for other services in his portfolio. I highly recommend KD Studios for your photographic needs.

    Brandon's artwork is absolutely amazing. We are starting our own craft brewery (Transplants Brewing Company) and he has done all our artwork. We simply give him a few ideas and he produces the most amazing and creative artwork I've ever seen without us having to even request much by the way of changes. It's just instantly perfect because he's that good. We are so lucky to have him as our artist and we brag about him all the time. He's a true genius and a great guy!

    I've used Antonio for his photography, videography, and graphic design services on multiple occasions. He has done photo shoots and fitness videos for my personal training business and of my daughter when she turned 1 month old. He has the ability to not only capture great angles but also edits the pictures and videos in a way where they look creative and artistic but don't look overly filtered. They still look natural. Many photographers are not able to do that. Most recently I had him design some business cards for me and we didn't even have to make very many tweeks to it. His first draft was just that good! I've gotten nothing but complements on them. Communicating with him was also very easy, there's nothing worse than trying to describe to a graphic designer "can you make this bigger/ smaller?" or "can you move this over there?" only to have them not listen or it takes them days to get back to you. I never have that problem with him. At his prices you get the most bang for your buck, and i haven't seen anyone at his price point that does his quality of work. I've never had any reason to use anyone else!

        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.
