Jim Wilkerson took the board design I had for my three person chess game of Tress and made an electronic graphic picture of it to be printed as a playable game. After having it printed by a print shop, Jim made a video advertisement of my game with the board and three actors. The advertisement was very high quality comparable of most seen on TV.

Bolt Launch delivered amazing results on an extensive web development project they did for me. Their professionalism, promptness and integrity made it a breeze. Once I shared the vision with them, they were able to bring it to life with minimal involvement from me. I highly recommend Bolt Launch, they have truly been a partner in this project that I am extremely grateful for. Couldn't have done it without them!!

It is extremely difficult to explain complex medical diseases and procedures just by words alone so I hired Myles Hundley (www.myleshundley.com) 3D artist to do several 3D animations for me. I explained to him that I needed to show what caused neck injuries (such as high velocity manipulation by a chiropractor, self-manipulation, forward head posture such as in texting or working on the computer) and how these forces stretched out the ligaments in the neck causing neck instability. I also needed him to animate how the vertebrae sliding or moving too much (called cervical instability) pinched on nerves in the neck and stretched blood vessels (such as the vertebral arteries). The conditions I needed him to illustrate were Barre-Lieou Syndrome, Cervical Radiculopathy and Upper Cervical Instability (C1-C2 instability). I also had to show how the treatment I did, Prolotherapy (Regenerative Injection Therapy) strengthened the ligaments, thus causing stability in the neck and resolving such conditions as neck pain, vertigo, dizziness, ringing in the ears, facial pain and many more. As you can see it is a very complicated task to accomplish all of the above and make the videos, life-like and easy to understand. Myles did various drafts and though he lives far away from me, we just did skype conferences and I explained what I felt needed to be changed or added. Myles throughout the process was very attentative, patient, understanding and of course very skilled. The net result was six 3-D animations that exceeded our expectations. I have used these 3D animations for promotion on the internet, You Tube, our newsletters and of course our website. I will tell you one story that really hit home for me regarding the power of Myles videos for explaining Prolotherapy and the healing power that it has. Recently I taught 3 doctors in the Dominican Republic Prolotherapy. One doctor was an endocrinologist and two were orthopedic surgeons (I am a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Specialist). Prolotherapy is an injection technique that stimulates the repair of injured structures such as tendons, ligaments, meniscus and labrum so the person doesn’t need surgery. It can even keep people away from joint replacements such as knee replacements. I started my training with the Dominican Republic doctors by first lecturing for 4 hours and showing and explaining the Myles videos. They clearly showed the ligament injuries, the vertebrae moving, this then pinching on various nerves causing such conditions as Barre-Lieou Syndrome, Cervical Radiculopathy and symptoms such as migraines, tension, neck pain, vertigo, dizziness, fatigue, racing heart and lightheadness. After the conference, one of the orthopedic surgeons Dr. Mateo said to me “I honestly couldn’t understand how Prolotherapy was going to get rid of all these symptoms until you showed that 3D video. That is what put it all together and I could then get what you were trying to tell us that almost everyone who suffers with vertigo, migraines, tinnitus (ringing in ears), lightheadedness and neck pain has Barre-Lieou Syndrome and needs Prolotherapy. So professionally I am grateful to the work that Myles did for Caring Medical. It has helped us educate prospective and current patients on Prolotherapy and the conditions it treats. He has also helped me educate doctors so that they can truly understand what Prolotherapy does and how it helps ‘unpinch’ nerves, even doctors who speak another language because everyone speaks ‘3D animation language’. I wholeheartedly recommend Myles Hundley. On another note, before I even started the project I got several bids for the work and Myles was the most affordable. So for the person who wants state of the art 3D animation at a very fair price, I would recommend contacting Myles. Sincerely and humbly given, Ross A. Hauser, M.D., Prolotherapist Author ‘Prolo Your Pain Away’ Medical Director Caring Medical, Oak Park Illinois

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.
