The entire experience with him was positive from beginning to end. I hired Jim to design and build a coaching website. He did more than that. Before we started the website design he helped me obtain a domain name. He actually did that for me and it took several tries. During the time we worked together he always responded to questions timely, whether it was email, phone calls or text messages. He was consistently polite and professional. Jim was responsive and receptive to my suggestions for the website and made several changes during the process. He also provided valuable feedback for my consideration. I highly recommend Jim Penrose to produce your website or video. Laura L.

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!

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.

My friend and I were working at a startup that took a lot of time and effort from us. So we had just no right to fail. All we needed is to attract new people to our online-magazine and after some web-research I’ve decided to contact these guys. The first thing I paid attention to was the price for service. Well, actually I expected some positive result but as we were unable to pay much money I had never though that we would get almost twice more visitors in a couple of weeks already!

Neal is a great person to work with. His attention to detail was outstanding. He was able to give our web page a fresh new look and attracted many viewers. His use of short videos and photos made our page different than most other fire departments.

Sam has a broad skill-set. Most recently he put together a website for a new venture of mine which has great functionality as well as look-and-feel. Sam has done book-keeping for my wife's company using QuickBooks - including entries, payroll and account rec. We have several vacation rentals on VRBO and Sam has taken responsibility for responding to inquiries, booking and following up. He has a great sense of detail. He follows through without prompting - leading us to delegate more to him. As a final thought, Sam always puts in the hours to get something done in the time committed - a workplace maturity not often found in recent college grads.

Rotimi created the website for my new business. He fully listened to my ideas, intelligently implemented those ideas, offered professional insights, and patiently applied changes as my ideas developed. He was promptly responsive to texts and emails and demonstrated integrity every step of the way. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Rotimi’s very smart, hard working, and talented - definitely the right guy for the job. No need to look further.

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.

I was first introduced to Angela on zazzle,com in about July or August 2011 when she left a wall comment about the, um, unusual nature of my product designs. After looking at her zazzle store and some of her other work online, I asked her to design a website for me. It wasn't just any website advertising services or goods. It was a "personal" site and the catch was that it was about a fictional character I am developing, a self-important blow-hard Mayor of a dystopian fake town in north Florida, The Right Honorable Rantin N. Raven-Faux VI, The Mayor of Myassa, Florida ("Where You're Past is Our Future"). Angela immediately caught on to the absurd nature of the project, adding several features of her own which I liked. It was not to be a slick, noticeably polished site but it was polished in its own way because I thought she got the backwoods feel right in the visual aspects and the clumsy e-challenged presentation of the fake information I submitted to her. She is very enthusiastic and willing to try anything asked of her and get it right, even if it looks wrong. She was clearly more concerned about my character than about making a slick site to attract customers, which she had already done very well several times. She is young and creative and not stuck into formula-driven work and her personal "image" was subjugated to the task she was asked to perform. That is a truly professional attitude in my opinion. I gave her free reign to experiment with anything she wanted to try. Due to other distractions in my life, the website has been allowed to lapse at its previous host site, but I foresee it being resurrected with Angela hosting it in the next couple of months with "advancements" in important aspects of the character. I do not hesitate to recommend Angela for any kind of design work. Incidentally, we have never met face to face. She lives in California and I live in Tallahassee, Florida (my model for Myassa). I think we've worked together well long distance.

Gigi has filled many roles in my life since I met her about a year ago. She recruited me as a model in her modeling academy AMI American Modeling Institute and has acted as my agent booking me several different modeling jobs to enhance my portfolio. She is also assisting me in starting up my own online boutique business, and becoming partners with me on it, so that I can have another means of making money while working on my modeling career. She has also been a mentor for me always offering solution oriented advise to help coach me to reaching my life goals. She is a really well rounded and extremely intelligent individual with positive energetic energy, and I’m very appreciative to have her support in my life.

Excellent work! Black Arrow Digital took care of all my social media needs with perfectly relevant and up to date info so that I wouldn't have to constantly update the various social media networks, which seems to be pretty essential in this day and age. They also did my business's graphic design and advertising placement work, which really helped me get my name out into the community. Thanks Black Arrow!

We hired George from Born Creative to make some changes to our website and make it mobile friendly. Not only did he understand what we needed very quickly but at the first meeting itself he went right down to it and made changes/additions and more to our website. He made many good recommendations and made sure to address every issue we had in a diligent manner. We would definitely use him again if the need arose!

I have 2 businesses—one a traditional service business and the other a web-based platform. Mary came as a referral from some other business owners I know personally. So, I reached out and asked her to help me with social media and some traditional marketing of my service business. It wasn't long before I was busy on-boarding/servicing the customers that were coming in via her marketing efforts. By this time I trusted she'd be able to add some real value to my other business. She was able to drive more traffic to my site, convert visitors and ultimately continued to increase my user engagement by at least 20% each week. She's still on my team and I'm not planning on letting her go anytime soon!

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 do I find a good app developer?

A good app developer can help you if your company wants to build a new mobile app for customers but you don’t have an IT or development team on staff. First, decide whether you want an app made for the iPhone or Android phones or both, then start your search by finding an app developer with expertise in your chosen platform. Ask for samples of their work, such as code samples, that can be tested on open source repository sites like GitLab and GitHub. You can also interview firms that specialize in mobile app development for small companies or startups; they should be able to offer examples of different types of apps they’ve built, and are likely to have expertise in a range of technologies and platforms. Before you sign a contract, make sure to ask prospective app developers these questions:

  • What other apps have you developed? Make sure the apps in their portfolio reflect the type of work you want to have done for your company. It’s especially helpful if they understand your industry.
  • What technology and development services do you offer? Ideally, an app developer will conduct a business analysis, develop the app, perform quality testing and make sure the launch is successful.

Will you maintain the app after it’s launched? Releasing an app is only the beginning. You’ll need someone to maintain it too, releasing updates and fixing bugs.

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.

Who builds apps?

Apps are usually built by software developers who specialize in mobile software. They may be experts in just one mobile software development language or know several, and may have expertise in front-end or back-end web development. No matter what kind of phone or tablet you carry, there are hundreds of apps for it — and new ones seem to be added to the app stores every day. Before you hire an app developer, it’s important to have specific goals for your app and a clear idea of its purpose. When your company is ready to build an app, you can hire a freelance app developer or work with an app development company that can also support the app after it’s launched. It’s important to know whether you’ll need the developer to provide ongoing maintenance and support or if your internal IT team can maintain it after its launch.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
