Kaveh M.

I met Jon through my cousin, and was skeptical with web developers at the time because a previous company charged me both arm and legs for a POS site. Jon looked it over and said he will build me the right one. Sure enough 2Point Digital Agency built me exactly what I wanted with all the necessary tools to expand into a fully operable e-commerce site, and for less than the previous company charged me. All texts, calls, and concerns are responded to immediately. I've worked with a few agencies and I by far had the best experience with 2Point. Thanks Jon and Nick!

Alan is an extremely talented professional, working in many different media. Over multiple years I have worked with Alan on many numerous graphic design projects, my personal artwork projects, studio portrait photography shoots, on location chroma key photography events, video projects, and utilizing his original music scores created in his personal recording studio. I have learned a lot of things from him that have enhanced my own graphics business. He so easy to get along, with making technical information understandable on my level. I highly recommend his services, as you will get back twice as much knowledge that you would expect, at an affordable price. Marc

Robert is an expert in the design field. He is a true artist that also is an expert at modern web design. I have worked with Robert of a couple projects and his thoroughness, upfront communication and quality of work are what have impressed me the most. I would highly recommend Robert for web design, graphic design, logo design and just about any needs when it comes to the aesthetics of your brand assets like your website. Robert designs custom wordpress themes, and I believe he is is a cut above the rest when it comes to design experience and ability to make modern responsive designs that flow across the many devices that people use to browse the web. It is true that you get what you pay for in web design and I have found his rates to be very reasonable also. Brandon L.

I worked with Terri to design a Logo for my business. After our initial communication, she discussed with my my perception of what I wanted and also asked me some questions on the way I run my business and the type of person I am. Her first run through she definitely captured what I was going for, and within the first revision I had the basic outline for what I wanted. She is an amazing artist and definitely great to work with, and incredibly talented. I look forward to working with her in the future. I could not be any happier. I confidently recommend her services!

Emily from Webbed It did a great job in resolving issues that I was having with my company website.

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 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.

How do you hire a web designer?

You’ve determined that the best way to create a professional, modern, mobile-friendly new website is to hire a professional web designer to build it. To hire the best person for the job — and to get the web design that best fits your company’s identity — it’s important to ask a few key questions:

  • What’s the scope of the work? Will the website be basic with just a few pages about your company, its services, and contact information? Or will it also have an e-commerce section for online shopping, a blog, or content for visitors to download? Before you hire a web designer, make sure you have a thorough, specific list of the components you must have the designer include in the web design.
  • What do you want your website to look like? Consider websites that are similar to the one you’d like to build, ideally in the same industry or serving similar types of customers. Build a set of examples of types of pages, design aspects, and website features that you can hand off to the web designer — the person you hire should have experience creating websites with the features you want. If they don’t have the right skill set, they’re not the right pro for you.
  • What’s the web designer’s start-to-finish process? What will the final deliverable be? Before you hire someone, make sure their availability works with your timeline and that their process meets your expectations. Most important is finding a web designer who will work collaboratively with you to create a successful online presence.
