Where do I even begin with this amazing and talented person. I met Amy shortly after I moved into my new home. After interviewing over 10 interior designers and feeling absolutely no connection, in came AMY!!!! She just got it! She knew what I wanted, she understood my needs and my budget. From there we started the process that was fun, exciting and so easy. Amy would send me ideas, we would tweak and move on. She was so easy to work with and her ideas and design concepts are like no other. She thinks outside the box to create unique, feel good spaces. She is highly responsive and I can ping her at any time of the day. She's always there for me. To date Amy has give be a luxe family room, beautiful kitchen, one little girl room that is an a Indian princess retreat, another little girl room that is an adventurous Moroccan haven and a dream like Greek Moroccan backyard. We are in the process of working on the rest of the house and I'm so happy to have met Amy who is not only an amazing interior designer, but an awesome human being!

We purchased a home that needed substantial updating. Basically, it was a tear-down but we wanted to save it. The floor plan, which consisted of multiple additions over many years, resulted in an extremely awkward layout. After gutting the house we realized we needed to turn to a designer to help with the interior layout and finishes. Bobbi of studio b. elements, was up enthusiastically up for the challenge! She quickly ascertained our style and implemented a plan and that surpassed anything we could have dreamed of. Although we met her in her office, we appreciated the convenience of the web meetings she offers. She was able to walk us through our design and link us to various websites to show the proposed finishes. Bobbi works hard to create custom designs tailored for each individual client. Her architectural background gaves her an advantage over other designers. She was able to reconfigure our layout, create custom built-ins and a cohesive design that surpassed the quality of work provided by any other designer I have ever worked with. Plus, she really cares about her clients. I wholeheartedly recommend Bobbi and studio b. elements!

        I have hired Denise many times over the last 5 years. The thing that always amazes me is how she turns a simple idea into something spectacular. She literally thinks of unique & awesome ideas every single time. I always step back in amazement as she tweaks something slightly to make it so much better. Added to this, frankly she has a knack of finding things at the right price! She is worth every penny & I could not recommend her more highly.

          About

          Designs By Christen is a web design and marketing company that was formed in 2012. We knew from day number one that we didn't want to be like every other web design company out there. We wanted to be unique. We began looking into other companies and noticed some shortcomings. There is a huge separation in web design and marketing in the mainstream world. We see this as an error in philosophy. A website should be more than a stand-alone way to advertise your business on the World Wide Web. If it is, it will be lost in the thousands of other websites in your same field. We believe a website should be one piece in an overall marketing campaign to market your business to the world. In other words, whereas most people see web design and marketing as two separate worlds, we see them as one world. We combine the two, so you can effectively market your business. That's what separates us from the rest of the industry.

          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.

          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.
