Cindy is very helpful and patient with me. This is my first time working with a jewelry designer and I have really enjoyed the experience. Her insight has been crucial into helping me decide what elements of the design I wanted would ensure a beautiful, comfortable and durable ring. I will absolutely work with her again for any wedding,anniversary, graduation or birthday gifts in the future.

As the director of Mission Promise Neighborhood’s community engagement, I know how critical it is to our programs of family educational and economic development that we have dynamic, well-conceived, culturally appropriate and compelling graphics to communicate with our constituents. In my search for an agency capable of that level of graphics, I found OMc design on the Internet and called to get a quote. My first impression was that Christoph Oppermann, the founder and creative director took time to speak with me and he listened, carefully, to what I had to say. Finally when we received a grant for the design work, I contacted Christoph again and began to collaborate on our branding project for the Mission Promise Neighborhood. Here is what I learned about OMc and Christoph during the time we worked together: • Christoph took the time to research our audience and hear what we wanted. He gave us a variety of options to choose from once he understood us, our wishes, needs and budget • Christoph and team went above and beyond in the time they spend in meetings with us. The result was that they came back to us with a professional, high quality and beautiful design that we now proudly wear and use in all our materials, collateral and swag • Christoph is deeply responsive and committed to his clients. He gives the utmost respect and caring to produce a result capable of representing our programs • Our need was to reach the Latino community. Christoph met that need by considering culture, language and the feel that our logo must have to represent us to our multiple audiences - from families receiving services to donors and stakeholders. We couldn’t be happier with the end result as well as the collaborative and collegial process Christoph used. I recommend OMc to companies big and small. Christoph provides the same level of high quality to all. I would work with Christoph at every opportunity we have to work with a design company. Every Family Succeeds. Every Student Achieves. Cada Familia Triunfa. Cada Estudiante Logra.

The entire experience with him was positive from beginning to end. I hired Jim to design and build a coaching website. He did more than that. Before we started the website design he helped me obtain a domain name. He actually did that for me and it took several tries. During the time we worked together he always responded to questions timely, whether it was email, phone calls or text messages. He was consistently polite and professional. Jim was responsive and receptive to my suggestions for the website and made several changes during the process. He also provided valuable feedback for my consideration. I highly recommend Jim Penrose to produce your website or video. Laura L.

Putting together a website can be a daunting task, finding the knowledgeable individual or company is even more complex. I did my research, looking for this person that can innovatively create, gracefully design and efficiently optimize my web site. From start to finish Brandy was able to guide me in a simple hassle-free manner with all the above procedures. Finding the correct motifs for my website, the proper message that I wanted to deliver to my audience and overarching structure of the website was easily achievable thanks to the expertise and efficacy of Brandy. I finally found a web developer that can put color, flavor and effectiveness to my project, we have been working on various designs such as logos, labels, web pages and we are currently optimizing my main website, implementing new strategy to make it more attractive for my audience. If you need a competent professional working with you from A to Z, Brandy is hands down the developer for the job.

David came out promptly to take measurements and start the work even though I had been delayed on following up after his initial proposal. Very efficient and thorough with explaining how everything works and answering all my questions as a homeowner looking to do some updates and design/remodel in our home. He is certainly worth the investment and I am very satisfied with the as-is renderings we have started with and I look forward to working with him to finalize the design ideas on the project. Thanks again David!

I can't thank Hashtag Systems, Inc. enough. My website was compromised and needed to be restored. Hashtag Systems was very responsive and professional during the whole process which included redesigning my site's home page. The final design result is of a much better quality than the previous one. They also charge a reasonable rate. I will continue to use Hashtag Systems services for additional work to my website. Kudos to Hashtag Systems on a job well done.

I was first introduced to Matie Natov by a business associate. I started an independent project that required the same skills set that Matie Design had displayed on the previous exposure. Matie and I discuss ed my business venture along with her consultation on ways to approach from a marketing/web design/logo perspective. I found Matie to be a great listener, logical, and perceptive. Her input exceeded all of my hopes during this phase of building DeanzNutz.com. I look forward to engaging Matie Design in my future endeavors. Thank you, Matie. Richard D. Matthews

Working with DreamQ was great! I needed a new website and fresh corporate look for my small business. The website looks fantastic- clean, modern and works great on mobile devices. Even better, was that in addition to building my new website they also offered to do all our graphic design, logo design and content writing. I ended up having them do everything because I love streamlining all my work through one company- much more convenient than having to find several different companies. The quality of their work looked amazingly professional- and so much better than my original work! I spent a bit more than I planned, but was very impressed with the outcome.

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 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.
