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 truly don't write to many reviews but after my experience I feel completely compelled to make a statement regarding my experience with Best Draft. I spoke with Choon as my very first contact for possible hire - I was very impressed but felt I needed to look around as he was the very first person to contact me from Thumbtack. After 3 weeks of research and additional interviews I went back to Choon as he seemed the most knowledgeable, caring and experienced option. His follow up was incredible. I'm so glad I chose him. Choon created a logo and business card design for a new business I've started. Its a new company and I'm concerned about my impression, making a statement and separating myself from the pack. I've never had a better experience with a Graphic Designer than with Choon. (and I've had many with numerous start-ups) His work is exceptional and is done with great care, creativity, experience and branding "smarts." If you want someone you can trust to get a high-quality, impressive product - I highly recommend him for ALL of your marketing. I will be using Choon for all my future marketing projects. The return on my investment was much more than I expected. Easy process - Amazing results!

“Our non-profit organization 'Bangladeshi American California Society' (BACS) recently received our "Tri-Folder' complete amazing colorful design artwork from Sabina Islam, and we are once again thrilled with the lay- out and art-work she developed for our Special Event in Los Angeles. She managed to capture the perfect essence of what our event stands for in her creative and striking design. Our invited guests are able to identify our organization through the impressive branding she has designed for us with her outstanding creative ideas. Sabina islam was even able to work within our extremely tight deadlines. It was a very short notice..literally less than 48 hours to complete the design with our event's pictures, texts etc. We are so grateful to have an excellent 'Graphic Designer' like Sabina, who has such a " deep commitment to the community, helping us with all our design needs. We really appreciated Sabina Islam's flexibility and efficiency. Giving great direction as well as listening to ideas is what makes Sabina Islam an amazing creative professional. It’s great to work with someone so open-minded and responsive. I would recommend her to any prospective clients, friends or employers and I have a high level of respect for her. Thank you for completing our project creatively, professionally, and promptly, and for an overall positive experience.”

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!!

We hired Dave and his website design team to overhaul our Shopify website, and what we received was nothing short of amazing. Not only did Dave give us a great price for the new web design and development, he included all the tedious onsite search engine optimization work at no additional cost. We couldn't be more happier with Dave and all the guys at SEO Trust that worked so hard on redesigning and building our online store. As long as we're in business, SEO Trust will continue to receive our business!

I worked with Steve to do some design work for a Groomsmen gift. He used a photo of my Best Man and turned it into an amazing piece of art. He also designed a logo as well. The caricature and logo were used on customized poker chips that were incredible. They were a major hit at the wedding and my Best Man now keeps a chip on him all the time. Steve is extremely talented and I would suggest any work you are looking for in terms of design and graphics you look to him.

Rick Barrett & USA Development are absolutely exceptional! During the bidding process I received many offers for service but Mr. Barrett stood out above the rest because he was the only Web Designer who took the time to solicit details on my business (i.e. objectives, needs, vision, service offerings, etc.) - this was major. Rick & his team not only developed a quality site that far exceeded my expectation, but were also timely in delivering the site. Lastly, USA Development offers a multitude of additional services - including SEO, copy writing, graphic design and much more. They run a great and affordable operation! I highly recommend Rick Barrett & USA Development because they’ve made my dream come true!

Alan is an extremely talented professional, working in many different media. Over multiple years I have worked with Alan on many numerous graphic design projects, my personal artwork projects, studio portrait photography shoots, on location chroma key photography events, video projects, and utilizing his original music scores created in his personal recording studio. I have learned a lot of things from him that have enhanced my own graphics business. He so easy to get along, with making technical information understandable on my level. I highly recommend his services, as you will get back twice as much knowledge that you would expect, at an affordable price. Marc

I've worked with Steve as both a co-worker in a corporate setting and as a freelance designer/art director. In both instances, Steve delivered beautiful high quality work. Not only did he come up with effective creative solutions to our challenges, he put the time and effort into understanding our business goals. That's a critical part to the success of a creative project and Steve is a master at it. It's also a huge part of the reason why I'd work Steve again in a minute.

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.

    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 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.

    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.
