Working with Zach has been virtually effortless in the best way! He's really talented and a great listener. It's not always easy over the phone and email to work with a designer, but he seems to always understand, asks the right questions or through rapid trials finds the solution. He has my highest recommendation!

I have used Fernando and Design Heroes several times, and we will continue to due so. I found Fernando using Thumbtack. Fernando called me almost immediately after I posted, which I appreciated. He laid out a website for us which crossed over mobile/tab/desktop platforms, helped us set up email, and talked me through the process in easy to understand terms. He gave us a website and online presence we were proud of. We continued to use Fernando as we grew, and he was always reliable and professional. Most recently, we used Fernando to help us prepare for the Colorado Garden and Home Show. Fernando completely rebuilt our website, designed and printed new flyers, brochures, and business cars, as well as the graphics for our booth display. Fernando really helped to set us apart, not only from our competitors, but from everyone at the show. Our booth, literature, and website, captured almost double what we were projecting to get from the show, and we continue to get more. We really owe a lot of this to the work Fernando put into all of this for us. Having really interesting and professional literature, and a website that's not generic, but informative and gets attention, reflects well on my company. This makes it easier to educate, sell, and retain my customers. I recommend Fernando to anyone looking for graphic and website design, and I will continue to use Fernando for whatever our company needs. His work speaks for itself, and he is very good at explaining the entire process clearly, and in terms that I could understand, so I knew exactly what to expect. Big thanks to Fernando for everything he's done!!

We were struggling to find a web designer who was competant as well as efficient with their time. But when we found Cymax Media our search had ended at last. Our new site represents us to a T and loads quickly. Best of all they were very patient with our many tweaks.

    I had an idea that I needed a planner with specific details and steps for my sales team. Carina Hermann at LBC Design Co was recommended to me and I am so glad she was!! Together we walked thru the process of taking an idea and producing a quality product. But not only did we get the planner completed, she assisted with the web, brand and social media also. I totally recommend LBC Design ......quality was excellent....prices were reasonable, such a great working experience!!! If you want to see check it out go to www.ambitiousplanner.com

    About

    Coming up with new ways to showcase a business or person's personality through my photography or graphic design is a great feeling. Watching their faces light up, when I hand over the finished product is the best reward. One of the perks of freelancing is that I get work on a different project everyday, be it while photographing a new mommy during her pregnancy, or designing a logo for a new business. I love everything!

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
