I am giving C2 Designers a five-star rating for professionalism, work quality, and responsiveness. I hired C2 designers a little over a month ago to help me develop a logo, and I received all of the files for my logo on May 25th. During that time, the designer, whose name is Juan, was very responsive to all of my queries about the progress of my logo. He always answered the phone when I called him. On our first phone meeting, I told Juan a little about by business so he could get a better understanding of how I wanted the look of my logo to be. I was amazed at the sketches he sent me after our first phone meeting. His sketches reflected the look I wanted for my logo. Juan is a very talented artist/graphic designer, who goes above and beyond for his clients. He threw in a couple of little extra gifts for my project that I was not expecting. I look forward to hiring C2 designers again really soon. -David R.

Angelika Mehrens Designs & Mural World and Angelika's unique work as a fine artist is outstanding. Exceptional actually. The fact is there are very few artists I've ever worked with and witnessed create, let alone enjoyed the quality within my own space where I literally can say 'I like every piece'...there's not one I've seen that I did not think was beautiful and aesthetic...yes I have a favorite over another - I've told her it's like a greatest hits album of music - except hers is a growing portfolio of canvas and murals. As it happens, I am an executive of a Life Consulting business and we've commissioned 7 pieces for the space currently located in Santa Monica, California - We and our clients couldn't be more pleased. In closing, she's also very service oriented and professional to the final touch. It is with pleasure I highly recommend Angelika Mehrens creative work. Entrepreneur - Ryan Spick

We are still in the designing stage of my logo, but working with Jon has been an absolute pleasure! I can't imagine what a headache it must be to be asked to do so many things over and over again, to be asked for intangible things that can't be explained or to fix something and make it just so. But Jon is always super awesome, so happy to help and truly takes pride in his ability to get you closer and closer to your dream logo. He's absolutely wonderful and I would recommend him whole-heartedly at the drop of a hat! Thank you so much Jon, for everything! :D

Debby and Creative Spaces was absolutely wonderful, creative, and completely turned our home's sore spots into wonderful highlights. We truly appreciated her flexibility and helpfulness. We will definitely hire Debby again for any new projects, and highly recommend her to anyone. She designed a wonderful new play space for my children and they finally have their own space to play in and have fun. The new patio she designed is perfect! It's now the perfect outdoor lounging spot for my family. We just had a party and our guests loved being out there. Debby is fantastic and highly recommend her!

One of the best experiences I have had with a graphic designer. I've used FIVERR, ZILLIONDESIGNS, local designers, etc...& NONE delivered what I wanted, in the time that I wanted at the price that I wanted in the time that I wanted. Ahmed delivered on all 3 counts + his work was FAR superior. I would recommend him to ANY & EVERYBODY that values my opinion & taste. Cannot say enough good things about him. Professional, timely, affordable, kind, respectful, & talented. I'm a fan!!

Major did a fantastic job designing my logo! I couldn't be happier with the final product and the experience in general. He was willing to meet in person and communication was on point and everything was done in a very timely fashion. I can tell he has a passion for what he does and is very creative. I will without a doubt recommend him to anyone that needs a good graphic designer.

Alan from Print Sling did a perfect job with the graphic design project I hired him to do. Other graphic designers attempted this task but they weren't able to do it, so he is clearly very skilled and capable. Further, he completed the job quickly and on time. I would certainly use him again. Thanks Alan!

I loved the details he puts into EVERY ICON and page to make it look PIXEL-PERFECT for all screen sizes: Mobile, Tablet & Desktop. So happy I've found such a warm-hearted programmer & designer. It was fun to work with him and I learned a lot about e-commerce, SEO + SEM, as well as Database works through the RE-DESIGN of my site.

Great design isn’t created in a bubble. Stacy opened herself up for an amazing dialogue for what my vision was for, not only my logo but for what I wanted to envision spatially in my yoga studio. No matter how experienced or talented a designer is (and let me tell you she is), collaboration is necessary. Don't get me wrong she does not need to be micromanaged, on the contrary she is a go-getter. She was a joy to work with. The result was an absolute fantastic one of a kind eye-popping logo. And her designing assistance in my yoga studio created a wonderful Feng Shui for all that entered. People would say "Wow, what a wonderful peaceful feeling I get when I'm here, I love your studio. As a big bonus...some of the techniques I learned from working with Stacy designing my Yoga Studio filtered in my organization and designing of my home. So now I have a more peaceful home I refer to as my Zen Den. Thanks to Stacy I live a more abundant, tranquil life. -  Kathleen Ames YogaUtopia

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 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.

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 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
