Andre Griffith and C1 Media take time to listen to their clients, find out their needs and visions, and bring them to life through photography, video and design services. They will present you with the best options based on your budget, and time frame, and you will be well pleased with the detail that goes in to your finished product. You simply will not get better customer service with another media firm.

Working with Bharti is like exploring your own sense of aestheticism. She is not only the most comfortable interior designer to work with, but a beautiful person at heart to know. She gives out wonderful ideas to make your house appealing to all your senses including your soul. When I moved into my new house, it was overwhelming for me to initiate the process of setting it up. Bharti was my soul saver who came with excellent ideas and helped me fill up my house with class and comfort. Working with her was a joyful journey as her patience and calmness helped my cluttered thoughts come out seamless. I highly recommend working with her, she is the best designer.

I have seen BCS' work and know first hand about their approach to client management and their regard for the end user experience. As a design professional and project manager, I value the type of expertise BCS brings to the construction process. They deliver quality control and know how to streamline production and construction administration, giving me the freedom and assurance I need to focus on exploring good design.

We worked with the Hubermans for approximately a year as we were building and decorating our new home. They assisted with all aspects of design and brought us many creative and innovative design solutions. Their contacts and knowledge of the industry were extremely valuable. They were very attentive to our wishes and followed through on the completion of all projects in a timely manner. Steve and Gail were always available to us and were an absolute pleasure to work with.

I am so exceptionally thrilled with the outcome of my living room and the experience using Kristin for support. The couch, wall paint, carpet and tv stand were exactly what I articulated and within budget. The couch arrived yesterday and other elements soon to deliver. Everything was timed perfectly as well around my busy work/travel schedule. Will absolutely use her for Bedroom next!

We hired Judy for my son's FIRST birthday party. She was very professional and pleasant to deal with. Her work was better than I had ever expected. Everyone at the party who she did their portraits of commented on how great they all came out. Most of my guests asked for her contact info for future parties. Some of them, including myself, loved our drawings so much, that we are using them as our profile pic on FB; while others have said they were going to use theirs for family Christmas cards this year. All in all it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend her for any party.

Jonathan is brilliant, in his knowledge of how to design something you have in your head onto paper, precisely. He has the tools, the background education, the psychology to deal with people who just don't know if their ideas about what they want can be done and he interacts with people like no one I have ever met before. I was so lucky to have found him, I recommend him to anyone who is thinking about doing a home project and just does not know where to begin. Jonathan is your person to help you with this!! He is so happy doing this job and that means us, as homeowners benefit from his joy of his job! I recommend to anyone thinking of updating/adding on their home to use Jonathan!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
