I actually asked Rick and Tricia where I could write a review for them. My experience with this company has been amazing. I hired them after interviewing 5 web designers. They listened to what I wanted and then very gently led me in a direction that made my existing ideas much better. I am admittedly an idiot with computers and they have been unbelievably patient, even when I ask the same questions repeatedly. Their design for my website is so impressive and I get raves about it from most who look at it. I paid for the year's maintenance and feel like I have gotten my money's worth of attention in the first 2 month's. Tricia responds immediately with updates and answers to my never ending questions. I feel like they are partners in my business. Couldn't be happier with their service.

Kim took our website and transformed it to a "wow design" using the same platform and saving us the hassle of changing. Talented, knowledgable, thinks outside the box, delivers tasks on time, and totally professional. Our non-profit organization secured several bids and have been very pleased with every aspect of our website design after securing Kim Northrop. We are even keeping our relationship past the web construction phase because we value her skills to assist our organization going forward. Can't recommend Kim and her services enough!

Kristen has been my web partner from the very creation of my website to the ongoing maintenance. In the beginning, Kristen created a beautiful website design from a handful of written statements about my business and myself, a logo, a few photos and some color scheme preferences that I dumped into her lap. She took that mayhem of information and organized it into a visually stunning and functional online representation of my business. She held my hand through the whole process. She started with the basics such as what’s a ‘Theme’ and how to choose the best theme for my website. She soon got me up to speed on all the different components that make up a website. Understanding all the pieces helped me work closely with her to design a website that really met all of my needs. My business website is now one of my best marketing tools. I refer current and potential clients to my website all the time to learn the details about the services I offer, my design style and process, my prices and how to contact me. Kristen even designed a password protected area on my website where I can offer access to special training information and videos that I wish to make available only to my clients and not to the general public. Once my business website was up and running, Kristen has worked with me to teach me the basics of how to administrate parts of the website myself. Although this might not be something everyone would be interested in performing, for those of us who have the skill set, knowing how to perform basic changes on the fly allows me to keep my website more responsive. I can update my pricing, add photos to my gallery, post blogs on current seasonal topics, etc. Kristen’s custom training videos and in-person web meetings have been instrumental in developing my website admin skills. Partnering with a professional like Kristen has been instrumental in the development and maintenance of my business website. I couldn’t have done it without her!

Beth has been my go-to web designer for several years, working on a number of web design projects. I'm always amazed at her eye for beautiful design, as well as the quality of the sites she builds--particularly their ability to rank very easily in the search engines. She stays in very good communication and goes the extra mile to make sure everything is as wanted by the client. She consistently turns out work better than expected and I highly recommend her.

    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.
