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 had a lady come by for the initial estimate. Her name was Jaeleah. She was an estimate manager. She was very nice and asked a lot of questions and took down a lot of notes and even left me with a business card. From there within the hour I received an email regarding the estimate and availability. I then, had a scheduling manager contact me to confirm details and day along with time. On the day of the actual clean up, I had a lead landscaper by the name of Catarino ( Cat for short) come with a young man named Kevin, Cat did not speak perfect English but he could communicate and tried very hard, Kevin spoke perfect English and helped me to confirm what I thought Cat was saying. The guys started the job which consisted of removing grass and weeds on a 3500 sq foot lot. I figured it would take the guys 2 days to do that kind of job. When I got home after work around 6pm the guys were actually finishing up. I mean, I was shocked. I walked the lot with them and we went over ideas and I mean I was so amazed by how hard and fast they got this job done. As soon as my husband gets back in town we are going to confirm what our next plant of action will be. Cat recommended I install new more drought resistant sod along with some gorgeous flowers he showed me that compliment the color of my home really well. He even showed me pictures of other sod and landscape designs he has done in the past and the work was exquisite. For the quality of work these guys provide and the professionalism these guys could easily be charging double if not triple the prices they charge. I am thankful I found you guys. Thanks for all the hard work you all did for us! We are excited for whats to come.

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.

Mamoon and his team are great at what they do. They put ethics in front of profit, which to me is the right way to do business. We've been working together for 5 years and I'm thankful for his dedication to our success. He's been a key instrument in developing our systems to give us a competitive advantage in a very competitive business enviroment.

Holly is an incredible interior designer. She possess a skill set that cannot be taught or learned with experience. She was born with a creative eye and passion for design - it's in her DNA and as a client, it's something that you experience from the moment you meet her. She has an ability to come into a space and re-imagine it in a way you never thought possible. She takes a room and completely transforms it to maximize form and function while making it beautiful. She is insanely talented and there truly is no comparison. I would highly recommend Holly for any house, any project, any size or space –she is amazing. My husband and I had just bought our first house and it needed quite a bit of work - not only in decor and paint, but it also needing some light remodeling. Holly was able to transform this house out of 1980 into 2015. Our house went from looking run-down and outdated, to looking fresh, modern and chic. When friends & family come over, they all comment on how they cannot even believe it's the same house. The rooms look bigger, the ceilings look higher and it looks brand new. Everyone comments on the decor begging to have Holly come help them with their house! Holly is simply amazing, I cannot say enough. Aside from her incredible eye for design, she is so professional, great at project management and helping you stay within budget. I would highly recommend her.

Cassie is currently helping me with furniture selection and arrangement for a new house. Cassie came out on short notice and measured and photographed all my rooms and came up with several design ideas within that same day. She really listens to her clients and strives to meet their vision while respecting the budget. She is a pleasure to work with and I will update with photos when the project is done but she has already exceeded my expectations.

Kevin designed the wireframes for my project - enterprise level mobile app for communication needs. He kept usability in mind as the first priority while providing a simple and clean UI for the app. With Kevin's detailed orientated nature, his work on the screens was always complete and well thought out. His designs were modern, fun and got the user excited to log in every time!

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.

I need a website that talks about me, my services, my programs and is SEO optimized so people can easily find me. I had a website that was built on strikingly and ran as single landing page which was great but it was converting zero leads and was not optmized at all so I decided to build a new one on Wordpress. I bought an Avada template on Themeforest and naturally as a coach not a web designer I am stuck frustrated and need this done before November 1st, 5th at the latest.
