Michael Bertoni did a fantastic job on my CD cover design and it was a pleasure to work with him. Michael took the ideas I had in mind for the artwork, but then transformed them with his design aesthetic into something much better than I had imagined. I was thrilled to see the final product. It looks very professional and reflects the vibe of the CD. In addition to his skills as a designer, I appreciated Michael’s positive attitude and his promptness in completing the project. I would recommend Michael to anyone who is looking for a skilled and creative graphic designer who is easy to work with.

Stevin brought us out of the dinosaur era! Innovative spectrum's and insight was definitely of great help once we first decided to hire a freelance designer rather than building a website ourselves! After reviewing our first round of the website drafts, we felt that Stevin was in the right art direction – which was great for us 1st timers! He uses state-of-the-art lay out structure, details, placements, navigation, image and graphics that reflects our expression and needs. No question or desire is too small or too big to be asked and put into design. Stevin made sure we understood that key notes and elements were keen for customer/viewer inquiries which provides our customers with a comprehensive understanding of our services. Stevin was also timely, efficient and willing to meet on-site always to better accommodate our schedules. Having flexible timelines for us was essential! He made sure to guide us with his business savvy and to quickly grasp concepts that turned out to be exceptional visuals with very little revision required! Stevin did an amazing job! We really appreciated his creativity, intelligence and ability to work with our content. If you can envision it and articulate it, Stevin can create it! Working with Stevin was effortless!

See my portfolio links below. Client Testimonial: "Adam is a fantastic find for all types of graphic design! Working together over the Internet with a graphic designer can be very difficult especially when it comes to graphics, websites, and print design. I sent over some ideas to Adam, and a day later, he sent me what I would call cutting-edge design. He recreated my logo which is now a stunningly balanced, sharp, and a very well-designed rendition. The flyer he made for us was also very well done. Not only is his work above and beyond, but also, he actually worked on a Sunday, which I totally did not expect!" -- Scott Norris at ReserveMyHome.

I'm fascinated by how and why people think, and also their communication systems. I believe my approach to design is unique because I take the user/audience/market into account every step of the way. Graphic Design is a visual communication system, and I'd like to think I'm fluent.

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 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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
