As the director of Mission Promise Neighborhood’s community engagement, I know how critical it is to our programs of family educational and economic development that we have dynamic, well-conceived, culturally appropriate and compelling graphics to communicate with our constituents. In my search for an agency capable of that level of graphics, I found OMc design on the Internet and called to get a quote. My first impression was that Christoph Oppermann, the founder and creative director took time to speak with me and he listened, carefully, to what I had to say. Finally when we received a grant for the design work, I contacted Christoph again and began to collaborate on our branding project for the Mission Promise Neighborhood. Here is what I learned about OMc and Christoph during the time we worked together: • Christoph took the time to research our audience and hear what we wanted. He gave us a variety of options to choose from once he understood us, our wishes, needs and budget • Christoph and team went above and beyond in the time they spend in meetings with us. The result was that they came back to us with a professional, high quality and beautiful design that we now proudly wear and use in all our materials, collateral and swag • Christoph is deeply responsive and committed to his clients. He gives the utmost respect and caring to produce a result capable of representing our programs • Our need was to reach the Latino community. Christoph met that need by considering culture, language and the feel that our logo must have to represent us to our multiple audiences - from families receiving services to donors and stakeholders. We couldn’t be happier with the end result as well as the collaborative and collegial process Christoph used. I recommend OMc to companies big and small. Christoph provides the same level of high quality to all. I would work with Christoph at every opportunity we have to work with a design company. Every Family Succeeds. Every Student Achieves. Cada Familia Triunfa. Cada Estudiante Logra.

I had been procrastinating for quite some time about hiring a web designer, but was so glad to be matched up with J-357 through thumbtack! From our first conversation, I knew that her great personality was going to be the perfect fit. She was extremely easy to work with, and provided exceptional communication. Being that we live on opposite coasts, I truly appreciated her quick communication and adaptability. She really went above and beyond to work with me across time zones, and was extremely flexible with my schedule. But it didn't stop there...the website that she designed for me is absolutely amazing; it is truly everything I envisioned and more! J-357 provided a training session once the website was complete. She is great to work with if you are not tech savvy, and explains the details in clear and simplified terms. She is extremely patient, takes into consideration your suggestions, and is extremely quick with the edits. Compared to other web designers that I researched, her pricing is extremely reasonable. J-357 provided an awesome service all around. I would recommend this web designer to anyone who is looking for a high quality, professional or personal website. Thanks J-357!

I contacted others through Thumbtack and Brandy was the very best choice!! her honesty, work ethic,professionalism,punctuality and Value are second to none!! Folks, this young lady can get it done! You need not look any further for the best of the best web designer, I promise! Her price was fair and her work is PERFECT!! You can personally contact me at 505-652-8218 anytime, I will explain in detail her awesomeness. She knows what shes doing and has NO QUIT in her whatsoever!! She works non stop & communicates (which nobody does anymore) at every step of the way! This alone is mind blowing these days. I highly recommend Brandy to whomever is needing a stellar website. Give her a chance and you will not be disappointed. We/our business is forever Grateful to Brandy! Joseph G.

AnyAlpha worked on our company website sometime ago. I liked that they were very responsive to our requirements. Although we changed them few times, but Sandeep and his team were very quick in making required changes. Will recommend them for any technology work.

Dan and Sun helped us out when our web developer left the project after some bad code was installed and our account was being marked as spammers. They migrated us to a new server (Dreamhost) and were able to help us redesign the site. We still use them for regular maintenance. Very professional. Good work.

"When we were looking for a designer for our website we contacted Johanna because she is a family friend. I had no expectations as far as her skills or looking at previous jobs but when we started the process I was blown away by the contact/conversations held and the mock ups we were sent all the way to final design. I gave her an idea I had and she took my idea and made it a reality. In a short time from first contact we had our first mock up and I could already see the detail she put into not only listening to my ideas but putting them on the computer screen. Although I wanted simple with our site the simple was supposed to also be eye catching and informative without losing the person on the Home page, and with the design Johanna put together it does just that and much much more. If you need a designer who keeps in contact with you with any question you may have and listens to what you want, Johanna Lonn is that designer!"

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
