LaunchPress owned and operated by Craig Hobson. Anyone can be a programmer or techie - but very few can be creative and technical digitally. Craig is a creative strategist on digital marketing approaches using Content Management Systems such as WordPress, information architect on helping evaluate WordPress Templates/Themes aligned to the business or brand, and of course technical in developing any custom tailored features as needed. He also understand the trends of websites with mobility sites and not just desktop sites. His concierge services are OUTSTANDING to help you decide what "tour" you want your visitor, customer, and clients to take when entering your digital realm for your brand, business, and company. He understand the big challenges of launching a digitalpress for a website/webpage is where to start and how to begin - he has developed in his 10 plus years of practice management for digital multimedia site development BEST PRACTICES on how to rapidly GTM for launching a new business, product, brand, or merely building up a project site. He also has knowledge of helping you with the "backoffice" getting started with registrations of domain urls and recommendation vendors for registrations. When you hire LAUNCHPRESS you are "outsourcing" the Digital Department staffed with Creative, Strategy, and Technical of your business to Craig Hobson and you can trust him for superior service, advice, and innovations. And if your project effort for digital realm launches needs expediting - Craig is there - and if it needs to be rescheduled or postponed - again Craig is there to accommodate with superior customer/client relations. When an entrepreneur, small business owner, and even an established mid-market company wants to select the right vendor to lead as a prime vendor for both project and ongoing services - LAUNCHPRESS should be your first choice in my opinion.

He is a professional who is willing to listen and learn. Though he pre-qualified his service and sold his capabilities by building a small sample site that focused on our company and proved his mettle as a web designer. His task is to rebuild our e-commerce site and other sites affiliated with our business.

About

As a full-time graphic designer, I have gained experience in both print as well as digital design, working on everything, from large catalog spreads and print materials to the creation of Web templates and eBlasts. As a freelance graphic designer, my responsibilities include design and production of advertisements, logos, and promotional materials for business events. Most importantly, I have gained experience working with clients and other designers as a creative partner, where I have achieved an understanding of company compliance and guidelines. I will work hard to create a product that we are both proud of.

About

Do you need a designer who has a unique aptitude for reading, understanding and interpreting people's needs? Several years of customer service, international travel, and volunteer work has given me an advantage over other graphic designers who are lacking important interpersonal skills. My creative versatility offers the ability to present a broad range of solutions when producing graphic design work. Priding myself on being a very organized and ambitious self-starter, I thoroughly research a topic before beginning the first sketches of any design. Finding it comforting and reassuring for my clients, I include them every step of the way. Communication is the key to perfecting the design. Professional illustration, logo, web, presentation, and brochure design, are just the beginning of my range of graphic design services. An expert with Adobe CC, Keynote/Power Point, photography and image manipulation, I can offer a unique perspective on design by incorporating my own illustrative touches. With more than 5 years of experience operating a successful design business as well as working full-time as an in-house graphic designer for an international company. I have the knowledge and creativity you need to get the job done.

About

The sole purpose of doing what I do is to cater to my clientele in a way that they can count on me to make their ideas and concepts come to life. My end goal is to always have my clients be are over-the-moon ecstatic about the finished design. I know and understand the importance of how impactful graphic design is. It creates a personality that ultimately introduces itself to the potential customer. Understanding the importance, purpose and effect is what makes my services as a Graphic Designer stand out above all else.

About

Much of my work is hand rendered before being digitally manipulated through various software. This gives the work a distinctive look and quality that is nearly impossible to achieve through digital design alone.

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 makes a good logo design?

A good logo is an easily identifiable, memorable image that represents your brand. A good logo design aligns with your business model and expresses your company’s core values. A good logo design is simple, appealing, and easy for customers and viewers to quickly process. Some of the key components of a great logo are type, color palette and design. The scale, font and arrangement of the text you select will all make a difference in the feel and representation of your brand. A graphic designer will help you home in on the colors that best represent your identity and help you keep the color palette simple. The design of your logo includes the shapes you select and the way the color and type are arranged together. Investing in the services of a professional to create your logo design is likely a smart investment for any size business. Nationally, the average price range for a logo designer ranges from $170 to $250.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
