As the director of Mission Promise Neighborhood’s community engagement, I know how critical it is to our programs of family educational and economic development that we have dynamic, well-conceived, culturally appropriate and compelling graphics to communicate with our constituents. In my search for an agency capable of that level of graphics, I found OMc design on the Internet and called to get a quote. My first impression was that Christoph Oppermann, the founder and creative director took time to speak with me and he listened, carefully, to what I had to say. Finally when we received a grant for the design work, I contacted Christoph again and began to collaborate on our branding project for the Mission Promise Neighborhood. Here is what I learned about OMc and Christoph during the time we worked together: • Christoph took the time to research our audience and hear what we wanted. He gave us a variety of options to choose from once he understood us, our wishes, needs and budget • Christoph and team went above and beyond in the time they spend in meetings with us. The result was that they came back to us with a professional, high quality and beautiful design that we now proudly wear and use in all our materials, collateral and swag • Christoph is deeply responsive and committed to his clients. He gives the utmost respect and caring to produce a result capable of representing our programs • Our need was to reach the Latino community. Christoph met that need by considering culture, language and the feel that our logo must have to represent us to our multiple audiences - from families receiving services to donors and stakeholders. We couldn’t be happier with the end result as well as the collaborative and collegial process Christoph used. I recommend OMc to companies big and small. Christoph provides the same level of high quality to all. I would work with Christoph at every opportunity we have to work with a design company. Every Family Succeeds. Every Student Achieves.

Jonathan did an amazing job for me on several projects. He worked with me to identify my vision for the designs, and then crafted a final product that met all my needs. Jonathan was great through multiple revisions, installing fonts and graphics, and troubleshooting tech/software issues. I will continue to use Jonathan for all my graphic design needs.

AnyAlpha worked on our company website sometime ago. I liked that they were very responsive to our requirements. Although we changed them few times, but Sandeep and his team were very quick in making required changes. Will recommend them for any technology work.

I was first introduced to Matie Natov by a business associate. I started an independent project that required the same skills set that Matie Design had displayed on the previous exposure. Matie and I discuss ed my business venture along with her consultation on ways to approach from a marketing/web design/logo perspective. I found Matie to be a great listener, logical, and perceptive. Her input exceeded all of my hopes during this phase of building DeanzNutz.com. I look forward to engaging Matie Design in my future endeavors. Thank you, Matie. Richard D. Matthews

    Matleena was an incredible web designer for the redesign of the Atma Connect website. She spent a lot of time thinking through and helping us decide on the best structure for our content, and making sure the content flowed well. She also built a beautiful website that was a tremendous improvement on what we had previously. We would recommend her for any organization looking for a website redesign!

    I asked Thom to take on two significant projects for our long-standing family business – create, shoot, edit, and deliver a powerful marketing video and update our existing website to be more mobile friendly (while adding his creativity and personal touch). Thom’s diverse background was essential when it came to completing this project – concept, design, coding, shooting, editing, and overall creativity. We have received several compliments on our website and marketing video and couldn’t be happier with the design and professionalism by Thom. Most importantly, Thom is easy to work with and a genuine person.

    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.
