Choon Lee with BestDraft was hired to design and post my legal website. My goal was to produce a professional yet user friendly site to inform my clients about my qualification and services. Choon was very responsive to my requests and needs which allowed for my vision to take shape. His pricing was competitive but his attention to detail and the finished product was first rate. Several times during the production of the website we hit road blocks but Choon was able to resolve the issues and produce the best possible end product. Choon also accomplished and completed my project in his quoted time frame. I am very pleased with his services and I would recommend him for your future web design project or a revision to your current website.

Where do I start... First off, Jon is absolutely wonderful. Not only is he extremely attentive but he gets things done and that is what I like about him. No BS, no time wasted. I need something or have a question, he has it handled. I have a website for a dental practice and its rather bland. It's template form and I cant do much about it. We have had this website for the past 17 years and you can only imagine how outdated it looks and is as a whole. With all the new and upcoming trends going on, its VERY important to make sure that your website is up to date, responsive and that your marketing content is intriguing and not dull. A friend of mine referred me to 2Point! I gave him a call last week, we scheduled a meeting and he arrived to the practice to discuss our 'strategy plan'. Great guy, no cutting corners and is straight to the point. Within a few days, his designers had a mock up website ready to be presented and let me just say, it looks fantastic. Its fresh, elegant, and straight to the point. Just how I like things as a marketing manager. He listened to everything I wanted and made it happen. A problem I am dealing with on the website is the bounce rate and funneling patients to a specific page. With this new website layout, I am sure that we will be able to grasp peoples attention and give them the information they need rather than them exiting out of our website upon arrival. We are in the process of signing papers and such! I will be updating my review within the next couple months to give other people an update on whats going on. So far, its been nothing but a great experience. Thanks 2Point!

Robert is an expert in the design field. He is a true artist that also is an expert at modern web design. I have worked with Robert of a couple projects and his thoroughness, upfront communication and quality of work are what have impressed me the most. I would highly recommend Robert for web design, graphic design, logo design and just about any needs when it comes to the aesthetics of your brand assets like your website. Robert designs custom wordpress themes, and I believe he is is a cut above the rest when it comes to design experience and ability to make modern responsive designs that flow across the many devices that people use to browse the web. It is true that you get what you pay for in web design and I have found his rates to be very reasonable also. Brandon L.

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.

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.

How do you hire a web designer?

You’ve determined that the best way to create a professional, modern, mobile-friendly new website is to hire a professional web designer to build it. To hire the best person for the job — and to get the web design that best fits your company’s identity — it’s important to ask a few key questions:

  • What’s the scope of the work? Will the website be basic with just a few pages about your company, its services, and contact information? Or will it also have an e-commerce section for online shopping, a blog, or content for visitors to download? Before you hire a web designer, make sure you have a thorough, specific list of the components you must have the designer include in the web design.
  • What do you want your website to look like? Consider websites that are similar to the one you’d like to build, ideally in the same industry or serving similar types of customers. Build a set of examples of types of pages, design aspects, and website features that you can hand off to the web designer — the person you hire should have experience creating websites with the features you want. If they don’t have the right skill set, they’re not the right pro for you.
  • What’s the web designer’s start-to-finish process? What will the final deliverable be? Before you hire someone, make sure their availability works with your timeline and that their process meets your expectations. Most important is finding a web designer who will work collaboratively with you to create a successful online presence.
