Cindy is very helpful and patient with me. This is my first time working with a jewelry designer and I have really enjoyed the experience. Her insight has been crucial into helping me decide what elements of the design I wanted would ensure a beautiful, comfortable and durable ring. I will absolutely work with her again for any wedding,anniversary, graduation or birthday gifts in the future.

Olivia is an exceptional talent! Her innate creativity and attention to the customer's needs are tremendous. Olivia's skills were way beyond what I needed, but she was still happy to create several info graphics and a business logo for me which has received COUNTLESS compliments. Price was very reasonable and her turn around was lightning fast. Olivia has a great eye for design as well as a great ear to hear what the customer wants & needs. She combines these qualities to create a product you never knew was possible! Not only is Olivia a professional designer, she is also a genuinely awesome person! I will continue to use Olivia's services in the future and I recommend you do the same.

Putting together a website can be a daunting task, finding the knowledgeable individual or company is even more complex. I did my research, looking for this person that can innovatively create, gracefully design and efficiently optimize my web site. From start to finish Brandy was able to guide me in a simple hassle-free manner with all the above procedures. Finding the correct motifs for my website, the proper message that I wanted to deliver to my audience and overarching structure of the website was easily achievable thanks to the expertise and efficacy of Brandy. I finally found a web developer that can put color, flavor and effectiveness to my project, we have been working on various designs such as logos, labels, web pages and we are currently optimizing my main website, implementing new strategy to make it more attractive for my audience. If you need a competent professional working with you from A to Z, Brandy is hands down the developer for the job.

Libby was part of the team I managed at Schawk's onsite production studio at Apple headquarters. She is an incredibly pleasant person who is very dedicated to her work. Even during a particular product launch when she had to take a cab from Cupertino to San Francisco at 2:00 am, Libby did not complain. She got the work done. As a designer, gaining this much production experience makes Libby one of the most well-rounded graphic design professionals I’ve had the pleasure of working with.

Paper Bash is my Go-To for all invitations (bridal showers, baby showers, parties, weddings etc.)! Xenia is the absolute BEST to work with: unbelievably creative, timely, and her letterpress work is unmatched!!! Each design is one-of-a-kind (never generic) and always turn out immaculate! My friends were so impressed, 3 of them already used her to create custom wedding invitations. Paper Bash designs will not disappoint!!

I had been seeking for a graphic designer for over a year to help me with the presentation process for my patented product idea. Non of the many graphic designers I interviewed could figure out how to accomplish what I was in need of. I called Ideology Studio and spoke to Kym Chao and briefly told him what I was needing done and he quickly responded with..."Oh that's easy! Just come in this afternoon and I will do it for you right away." WOW I was greatly surprised to hear him say that and even greater surprised that he in fact did accomplish what I needed and much more than I even thought of that very afternoon at our meeting! I picked up my completed project first thing the next morning and I was thrilled beyond words with the outcome! Kym is very professional and extremely knowledgeable of every program technology has to offer which enables him to do an outstanding job and deliver above and beyond your expectations. He is very easy to work with and his main goal is to make his client happy with the outcome. Since my first visit I have referred back to Ideology Studios two times now and each time the results of his work have been purely outstanding.

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 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.

How much does it cost to create a logo?

Logo design is an important part of your company’s brand development. More than an image with text and color, a logo communicates the tone and personality of your company to your potential customers. Hiring a graphic designer with an appealing portfolio and quality reviews is a solid start to creating a winning logo design. The cost to create a logo can depend on how in-depth the marketing and design services you request are. Designers can create one logo in multiple formats (horizontal, vertical, etc.) to fit both your website and social media platforms, they can create a variety of designs for clients to select from, or they can create multiple logos for one client who needs branding for more than one venture. Logos may be text-only, text and image, or image-only. Many designers and design firms charge by the hour for their services, while other companies offer packages bundled with design services. Here are some examples of cost:

  • National average cost to hire a logo designer: $170-$250.
  • Average hourly rate for a freelance marketing consultant: about $150.  
  • Tiered pricing for logo design packages from one firm:
    • Package One: $200 for three logo concepts, three rounds of revision, and a variety of format and color end designs.
    • Package Two: $350 for 10 logo concepts, unlimited rounds of revision, and a variety of format and color end designs.
    • Package Three: $550 for everything included in the Package Two, plus business card design, letterhead design, social media graphics and an email signature.
    • Package Four: $850 for everything in the Package Three, plus custom brand guidelines, which outline a strategy for creating a consistent branding in the client’s business.
