He developed our logo and mocked up the look and feel for our Web site. We are extremely happy with his work. We told him an overall idea of what we were going for and gave him creative freedom. The results were fantastic.

Jenette has been involved in our Women's Career Institute for the past two years, and we can't say enough good things about her and her willingness to be an empowering role model for students. Last year she was our inspirational keynote speaker, and her presentation was so impressive that we asked her to join us again this year. For our 2018 institute, Jenette, accompanied by Jessica Hogue, Director of Media Career Services at UIUC, provided students with a presentation on "Creating and Managing Your Brand," which student evaluations identified as one of the most helpful sessions of the day. One student wrote about Jenette that 'her energy was really inspiring and gave me confidence.' That is exactly what we hope to achieve through this event. Thank you Jenette! --Andrea Rundell, Executive Director of the YWCA of the University of Illinois

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!!

We needed a jump start for our podcast website design and we found Blaze through Reddit. Even though he was unfamiliar with the unique way our hosting service works, he was able to get our site designed in just a few days. He was very communicative and helpful throughout the entire process.

About

Louann Wilcock is the owner/operator of LouannDesigns. She has been a graphic designer since 1986, web designer since 1994, building hardware since 1999, and focused on online education since 1997. A lot has changed over the years, but I keep up with the trends, follow best practices and continually evolve. I never rest on my laurels! Perhaps this is what I enjoy most about the field; it is never boring! I like to bring my clients along, educate them to the tool they are going to have, and focus on calming any anxiety that comes with new technology. I am a card carrying member of AARP; in other words, I empathize with the confusion that those of us in that age category have moved towards the changes we've encountered in the last twenty years. My DVD player still scares me! BTW, the travel information doesn't go far enough. I don't mind traveling, but once we are on the same page, I like to do a lot by email and telephone. I like to keep it as green as possible! And I really will explain things to your comfort level.

I enjoy building very modern mobile and tablet-friendly websites, and developing landing pages that convert well and do well in both organic search results and paid AdWords campaigns.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a good app developer?

A good app developer can help you if your company wants to build a new mobile app for customers but you don’t have an IT or development team on staff. First, decide whether you want an app made for the iPhone or Android phones or both, then start your search by finding an app developer with expertise in your chosen platform. Ask for samples of their work, such as code samples, that can be tested on open source repository sites like GitLab and GitHub. You can also interview firms that specialize in mobile app development for small companies or startups; they should be able to offer examples of different types of apps they’ve built, and are likely to have expertise in a range of technologies and platforms. Before you sign a contract, make sure to ask prospective app developers these questions:

  • What other apps have you developed? Make sure the apps in their portfolio reflect the type of work you want to have done for your company. It’s especially helpful if they understand your industry.
  • What technology and development services do you offer? Ideally, an app developer will conduct a business analysis, develop the app, perform quality testing and make sure the launch is successful.

Will you maintain the app after it’s launched? Releasing an app is only the beginning. You’ll need someone to maintain it too, releasing updates and fixing bugs.

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.

Who builds apps?

Apps are usually built by software developers who specialize in mobile software. They may be experts in just one mobile software development language or know several, and may have expertise in front-end or back-end web development. No matter what kind of phone or tablet you carry, there are hundreds of apps for it — and new ones seem to be added to the app stores every day. Before you hire an app developer, it’s important to have specific goals for your app and a clear idea of its purpose. When your company is ready to build an app, you can hire a freelance app developer or work with an app development company that can also support the app after it’s launched. It’s important to know whether you’ll need the developer to provide ongoing maintenance and support or if your internal IT team can maintain it after its launch.
