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!

Houman answered our call for help. He came on a Sunday and was unable to locate a breaker replacement but did install a temporary breaker to get our electricity back on until he could get the breaker replacement. He was very knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. Did a great service.

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 there was a 10 star rating I would give it! Scott was so quick to respond. He came by the same day I first spoke with him, and the project was done faster than expected. I had an idea of the built in bench I wanted in my dining space,but once Scott looked at my furniture he sketched something way better than I could have ever come with myself! The lines of it are gorgeous and he even took the time to color match my cabinets so the paint would match. Not only is the bench beautiful, but it is ergonomic and so comfortable. I only wish I had another project for him to do in my home!

Arash approaches his work for you as an older brother. He cares about the design so much and owns the project as if it were his own home. He will do whatever it takes to make sure you are happy and proud of the final product. I know he spent many hours outside of our meetings to research options within our budget and time frame. What I enjoyed most about working with Arash is how he educated me on my options, and ultimately guided me to the best decision. Arash worked meticulously to make sure the 7200 square feet of office space was cohesively designed. He introduced new and hip products such as glass whiteboards, eco-friendly fountains, simple sit/stand desk options, and contemporary paint colors. He also offers a bonus service of picking out and designing custom furniture, and guided us through the process of assessing fabric quality and durability, aesthetics, color matching, pricing, and placement of furniture. He has an incredible amount of patience and has done nothing but good for our business.

BWA Design was the first to respond to my request for a book designer. However, his skills and abilities weren't what I was looking for as far as a book. If I needed someone to create flyers, banners, logos or websites, he will be my first contact.

After firing six designers, I thought I would never find anyone capable of meeting my extremely high standards. Arlet was recommended by a friend who is also OCD, and very critical. Arlet performed flawlessly, and continues to facilitate my projects with grace, and perfection! I unqualifiedly recommend Arlet Avanossian for any marketing project.

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!

Brooke Williams is a rock star! I have been working on my home improvement project (Dining, Living and Bedrooms) for over a year when I finally decide I need some professional assistance. I choose Brooke as my designer after interview several other designers. I was hesitance based on her hour rate (much more reasonable then other designers) but I have been pleasantly surprise with her knowledge, professionalism and ability to listen. She has done a wonderful job on my home and has completed the project within 2 months timeframe I requested. I am looking forward to using her on my next home improvement project.

Deborah is awesome, thoughtful, concerned about her clients needs and wishes. Deborah is a concerned authority with reference to design. She can put together anythings you may want. I say YES to Deborah as your next designer. You will get the feeling you want from your project. We wanted excitement, and she was able to deliver that concept. Deborah is awesome!

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

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.

    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 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.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
