Olivia is an exceptional talent! Her innate creativity and attention to the customer's needs are tremendous. Olivia's skills were way beyond what I needed, but she was still happy to create several info graphics and a business logo for me which has received COUNTLESS compliments. Price was very reasonable and her turn around was lightning fast. Olivia has a great eye for design as well as a great ear to hear what the customer wants & needs. She combines these qualities to create a product you never knew was possible! Not only is Olivia a professional designer, she is also a genuinely awesome person! I will continue to use Olivia's services in the future and I recommend you do the same.

      I'm a newly-minted San Franciscan or a recovering New Yorker. Either way you put it, I've lived in two very inspiring cities working as a graphic designer with over 10 years under my belt. In that time, I've cultivated skills and a vision to create hardworking designs -- everything from simple online banners to an entire suite of marketing materials.

      About

      I have over 7 years of design education background and more than 10 years of professional drawing training experiences. I love design the same as I love to draw. Design can help me look at this world with a unique angle. Drawing can let me express my feelings with a beautiful 2-D language. After I graduated from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco with a master's degree in industrial design with emphasis on product design, I got chances to work in different companies in the Bay Area. I have been working hard to improve my skills. Through all those experiences, I have developed myself in all facets of design skills: graphic design, product design, and user interface/experience design. I also train myself to become more detail oriented and self-motivated. I collaborate easily with companies, start-ups, inventors, fellow designers, industrial engineers, technicians, fabricators, and entrepreneurs. I stand out because of the following: * I pursue innovative solutions. * I have a user-oriented design spirit. * I am sensing future trends. * I am a master of the latest design skills. * I am thinking green.

      About

      Hi! My name is Carmen. I am originally from Hong Kong but currently living in the Bay Area. Growing up with doodling and DIY handcrafting, I knew that I love art and want to be some sort of a designer since I was a kid. However, I actually started my earlier education with science back in Hong Kong , then I realized that I should pursue my career with my creative side. I'm glad that I did change my major and moved to California for graphic design since the experience of living in a different country is definitely thought-provoking. I'm looking forward to learn more and live in the creative life.

      About

      I am a bio-engineering student currently attending Santa Clara University. I would like to offer my services as a graphic and web designer, and I hope to get some work in the next few months. Please don't hesitate to ask about pricing and what might suit you. I'm flexible. I want to be as straightforward as I can and I want to do a good job! Attached is a link to my portfolio (cooler website to come soon; it's just my portfolio now). I also have a resume, so if you would like to see it, then don't hesitate to send me an email or call. I know that answering the question, "so, how much do you charge?" is a little tricky because I don't just have one flat fee. To answer this question, however, I'll just give some prices for some other stuff in my portfolio. The titles can be found in my portfolio, linked below. - Maral Habib Photography (Website) - $500 - Accessgroup SCA (Website) - $1000 - Santa Clara Community Action Program (Website) - $700 - Dynasty Salon (Website) - $400 For websites, pricing is based on the size and the amount of flash components involved. In other words, you basically get what you pay for, but like I said, I can negotiate pricing. - Where I'm coming From (Poster) - $200 - Drag Show (Poster) - $200 - Project Kizzi (Poster) - $200 For these posters that I have made, I simply charge a fee of $200. The reason these cost so much is because I spend upwards of 15 or 20 hours on each one. - Rainbow Prom (Poster) - $100 - Potty Talk (Poster) - $100 These posters are smaller and took less time, so I would only price them at $100. A note about me: I'm pretty straightforward and honest: services from me cost $200 instead of $199.99, and they take me a week instead of a month with a bunch of binding contracts. Every image or photograph on my website is original. There are no stock photography or images (unlike 85% of all other web designers). Am I right for you? I'd say that any of the following would work particularly well with my style of working and design. - Special events posters, music or theatrical - Tickets for special events - Promotional posters and signs - Restaurant/food business websites - Privately owned small business websites - Salon or boutique websites or graphics - Photography/any freelance artist websites - Websites for weddings or special events Thanks, and I hope to hear back from you! If you have any questions at all, just ask.

      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.
