I've worked with so many talented graphic designers over the course of many years, and I have pretty high standards. Karen met them and then some. She really exceeded my expectations. I'll be working with her and referring her to my network again and again.

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.

Skip is not only very talented but extremely patient, walking us through the process we knew nothing about, of an animated video he us creating for our new business venture. We have a rather tight deadline for the video to present to some investors and he's been on top of it from the outset. We appreciated his dedication and are thrilled with what he has accomplished thus far.

I personally researched and interviewed many of the highest rated graphic artist on Thumbtack and other similar websites. I noticed a disturbing trend. What I discovered is while many people have bios that are exceptional, often they are not the one doing your actual work. In other words, an A-team person smoozes you, gains your confidence, wins the job and then farms it out to a B or C-team person or worse yet, puts your project out for bid on Fiverr or another site for a fraction of what you are being charged. Unfortunately, the more people that touch your project, the more the original idea gets diluted or even corrupted. After an exhaustive search, I settled on Joe for several reasons: He has an extensive background in advertising, graphic design, presentation development, PowerPoint, Keynote and website development. This gives him a very unique perspective when creating a project that can be used for print, digital and other mediums. Many designers are one dimensional which limits your future options. Its not his first rodeo! He is the person who actually does the work. You can actually speak with Joe on the phone. He returns call quickly. His prices are very fair. Joe completed several projects for me before I wrote this review. Anybody can do a good job once. Consistency is what I look for. I am not related to Joseph. I was not paid or even asked to write this. Yes, I am a real person. I have given Joe numerous projects, extensive website work, print media, social media and photo retouching. I can honestly say ,Joe is jimmy-john-freaky-fast with your project! He is not happy until you are happy. He has a very pleasant personality, a great attitude and has never seemed frustrated, put off, inconvenienced or annoyed by my requests. He is honest. The initial price quoted is always what you pay when the project is finished. Working with Joe is the biggest no brainer in the history of earth. I could not be more happy and I am VERY hard to please.

He is very pleasant and very professional. He takes his work seriously and strives to make you comfortable in his setting. We brought him an infant and a 4-yr-old for family pictures, and he was actively engaged in getting the infant to smile and letting the 4-yr-old be energetic. He made it abundantly clear he enjoys working with children. Very patient and pleasant to work with. Haven't gotten the pictures yet, but he worked within our price range, and he showed us some of the unedited pictures which looked really nice. He's also putting the original pictures on one of our flash drives for us. I highly recommend using him!

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.
