Dannie was incredible to work with. I needed a logo and business cards for my new and growing business and I couldn’t have found a better designer. I had vague ideas of what I wanted; Dannie took those ideas and expanded then in ways I did not know were possible! She was also very receptive to feedback and really listened to my vision. Apart from her beautiful, creative work and exquisite attention to detail, all work Dannie does is accomplished in such as timely manner. Not only was the project completed in record time, every thumbtack correspondence and email was responded to immediately. I will be using Dannie in the future for other projects and I would whole-heartedly recommend her to others!

Maria has been doing her job for over 20 years. She is excellent at it. My business, Star Vibes Organic Salon in Naperville Il, needed a logo and business card. Maria delivered with flying colors. I've also referred Maria to other business associates who will be needing her services. She is an expert in web design, logo and business card creation, and all phases of marketing and advertising your business. What a gem. Thank you Maria. You are a genius. I look forward to continuously working with her in the weeks and months ahead.

I started my Wedding Coordinating business in 2013 and had a very DIY website that I haphazardly threw together. Fortunately I managed to find clients despite that trainwreck but never really felt proud of how it looked. Fast forward to spring of 2017 when I was determined to update and overhaul the whole look and feel of my website. I sent out some feelers to local businesses and got immediate feedback from Adam Khan who not only had already looked at my website but made some suggestions right off the bat and had some tips based on other similar company’s websites. He made it easy for me by providing links to browse through and saved me time with his own ideas. He was extremely proactive with providing options and thankfully very patient and flexible with scheduling our meetings. I had a newborn at the time and was a bit fried. Adam helped me so much by just knowing what he was doing and listening to the ideas I had. I gave him bits and pieces to work with and he brought it all to life for me. I love the website he created for me and show it off whenever I can. I absolutely recommend Adam for any design needs. A quote I have on my own website is, “Give yourself the gift of time,” and I feel that’s exactly what I did when I hired Adam, because he made this whole process so easy for me.

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!

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.

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 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 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 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.

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.
