Juan and his team do top notch work. More importantly they are a pleasure to work with. We hired Juan to do some unique graphic design work for our new clothing line in development. It was so unique that it was hard to describe, but Juan translated our description perfectly into a final product we are completely happy with. Juan has worked in the clothing industry and is very fluent in composing graphics that work with clothing manufacturing techniques In the small instances we wanted adjustments, Juan was very willing to make sure everything was perfect and we received exactly what we wanted/expected Highly recommend and will work together in the future. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is my second 5 star review of Juan Cervantes and C2 Designers It's 5:09 AM on Saturday morning and Juan just put the finishing touches on another amazing project. I'm an entrepreneur and heading to my first apparel tradeshow, where appearance is everything. We knew nothing about lookbooks and catalogues and hired Juan to show us the way. He's an apparel industry veteran and knew exactly what to do and how to do it, which made for clear communication and speedy delivery. All of this was super helpful on our tight timeline. With his graphic work, we are confident going into the tradeshow. In addition to being subject matter experts, Juan and his team are so dedicated to their craft and really good at it. They get behind a project and put everything they have in it. They are true professionals, which means a lot in a world where anyone with a laptop and software can try to sell you services. It's especially challenging in our Internet world where there is so much information and so many service providers. Thumbtack helps to aggregate this, but it's still overwhelming with all of the decisions. Save yourself time scrolling through all the other designer profiles and hire Juan because you can depend on him to deliver every time. Juan and his team go above and beyond. It makes me want to keep doing projects with him to see what he comes up with next. After projects with Juan, I'm inspired to come back to this website and leave him 5 star reviews. For what it's worth, I never met Juan until Thumbtack and I have no relation to Juan or any reason to give a positive review other than the great work he does. Just my humble $0.02 in hopes of helping out another entrepreneur in pursuit of their dreams and in need of graphic work along the way.

He knows what i am asking him to do, when i tell him what i want, he can visualize and execute with a fewsimple tweeks back and forth, He hears what I see, and it is done!!!.. and is so reasonable ($$$), and he is honest. so you never get over billed.. give channel islands a call .. Bob and Mary make a great team.. and will get you what you are looking for, only better!

    About

    “Over my life as an Executive Director, I have worked with a number of graphic designers and without a doubt Donna Greene has been the best and easiest to work with. She listened to what we wanted the piece to say and represent, and created different right-on pieces every time. From conference brochures to monthly newsletters, we worked with Donna for 10 years, and she was always on time, creatively representing our organization and pleasant in the process. Never defensive and always able to communicate when she felt something needed to be different than we conceived.” —Pat Hardy, Professional Association of Innkeepers International “If you have had designers that lagged, and you had to bug THEM to make changes for you, search no more for your Holy Grail. You have found it in Donna Greene. Timely service. Responsiveness. Artistic designing. Accuracy. What more could you want?” —Kathleen Griffin, MD, The G Spa

    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.

    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.
