Bryan did a great job mounting a TV and soundbar. Made sure everything was centered and level, adjusted everything as needed, and came up with a couple creative solutions of his own when a couple of the parts weren’t right.

Jasper did an excellent job of designing and building my computer desk and storage unit. On our first meeting he was able to translate the description of what I wanted into a drawing with measurements. On his next visit he confirmed the measurements and proposed workarounds for dealing with challenges such as the room's molding as well as taking a paint sample to match the color of the unit with the room. The results were better than I expected. The unit truly looks built-in with molding around the top that matches the molding in the room. Though it's a floor to ceiling unit, it does not feel overbearing due to the design, color and seamless attachment to walls and ceiling. He was easy to work with when making adjustments in order to accommodate placement of my computer equipment. When I specified what I wanted, I got exactly that. Jason is an extremely competent woodworker and very fast executor. I would highly recommend him.

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.

I used J.A. Services in two occasions. On the first, they furnished my SOMA tri-level loft as a furnished rental unit, and on the other occasion, they staged my loft for a sale. J.A. Services not only met my key requirements but also exceeded my expectations on both occasions. My key requirements were as follows. For the rental, I wanted a modern and comfortable living environment with inexpensive furniture that did not look cheap. For the staging, I sought to maximize the value received in the sale. For both, J.A. Services exceeded my requirements. J.A. Services also completed their work on a very tight schedule, allowing me to market my unit quickly. I very much appreciated J.A. Services and their excellent eye for designing contemporary, urban, and comfortable living environments.

Christoph and his team designed our firm logo, collateral materials, and are currently working on our website. Christoph is in a league of his own design wise. He is creative, not afraid to take chances, and worth every penny. He sees things others do not and it shows in the quality of his work. His client management skills are top notch -- always on time with deadlines (or ahead of time) and never over promised.

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.

Thumbtack Customer
Verified review

I moved into a tiny apartment in SF without a single piece of furniture. I enlisted Angela's help to make the most out of my small space and was so pleased with the process and the results. She acted quickly by scheduling a call, stopping by my apartment to take measurements and following up with a layout and project scope. We then, worked together to decide on a vision of the space. She sourced pieces, ordered them or in some cases, went to the store to pick them up. She was very hands-on and helpful. Decorating an apartment from scratch can be stressful but Angela remained positive and believed in our vision, which allowed me to do the same. Now my apartment is complete and it feels better than I could have imagined. From a design perspective, it is beautiful but it is also comfortable and functional. I am stoked. The final thing I'd like to share is that working with Angela was actually way more affordable than I thought it could be - she found great deals on furnishing and often received additional designer discounts. Working with her was way easier than doing it alone, the design surpassed what I would have been able to achieve and it turned out to be so affordable. Thanks, Angela!

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.

David is a caring and enthusiastic man and a delight to work with. He is very efficient and gets the job done quickly. I am grateful to him because, although I am an interior designer and certified color consultant, I do not have expertise in drawing to scale sketches of the spaces I'm hired to design. David helped me by doing those sketches and my clients were impressed. I gave him 4 stars only because some of the sketches needed to be redone because of miscommunication between us. I must admit though that I may have not been thoroughly clear re. measurements. David was always eager to do the best job possible, and I appreciated that immensely. Thank you David. Would hire again.

The team is young and energetic. They are so friendly to work with. We were mostly impressed by the high level design quality with reasoble construction cost which was important to us. We appreciated their effort in maximizing value of the property and they are honest with their fees and always transparent with their tasks. we felt they've also saved us so much time and money. Though we didn't agree with Some of the design decisions at the beginning. They carefully explained to us, and we were happy to see the end result they have imagined from the beginning. If you are looking for new ideas and good value, I highly recommended ISO !

Wow! Wow! Wow! Normally interior design comes pretty easy for me...until I had a space I couldn't figure out nor deal with. I contacted Forsyth Home Design and Matt came to the rescue. From the first consult to the finished project he was there. Dealing with contractors, color choices, fabrics, and coming up with built in design options. I highly recommend them for ANY interior project that you might have. Thanks Matt!

Jason is a star. He brought an eclectic mix of high end, yet homey and logical taste to our office design project. He really went above and beyond what a designer should do, managing budgets, liaising with GC, subs, and custom furniture makers, putting together the knock-off conference room chairs he found us, and even buying plants for the office when we were all moved in! Whatever the budget and timeline, he just made it work!

Mary at California Interiors & Design was wonderful to work with and did a great job helping us pick exterior paint colors for a house we are remodeling. She brought forward a lot of great color options, with solid design rationale/logic, that both fit with our existing interior style and also with the vision we had for the house. The house now looks so fresh and new. I would definitely use them again should the need arise!

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.

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.

How do you find a good interior designer?

For many homeowners, the difference between a good interior designer and a bad one is simply a matter of taste — but all good designers have similar skill sets. Interior designers usually have a degree or certificate in interior design, with training in design principles and lighting, drafting, and computer aided design (CAD) software. Good interior designers have strong color balancing skills and understand how different colors influence spatial perception and moods. They know the building and electrical codes in the areas where they practice, and they make sure that any contractors they hire also work to those codes. They are knowledgeable about different upholstery fabrics and draperies, stay ahead of residential design trends, and maintain their own individual creativity. Also, good interior designers have excellent space designing skills, so they can arrange a space efficiently and with ideal traffic flow. Ultimately, hiring a good interior designer means pinpointing one whose signature style is complementary to your personal style — so checking out many designers’ portfolios is a must — and whose communication methods match yours.
