We engaged ActiveLogic to help do some early-stage UX/UI design for a new product launch. As a self-funded start-up, our budget for this process was quite limited. Robert from ActiveLogic worked within the framework of our budget and requirements to produce a great design. Robert and his staff were very professional and extremely knowledgable. We were also quite please with the entire design process and how they approached our project. Overall I would not only recommend them, but would be very happy to use their services again as our needs arise.

Sara is nothing short of amazing! It's important to have open communication with someone you are trusting with your company. I had that with Sara. Sara shared her thoughts and ideas throughout the process. She continually updated me as to what was going on so I never had to guess. Her patience with my dozens of questions and edits was appreciated. Her eye for beautiful, clear, and comprehensive design is outstanding! Sara is incredibly easy to work with; I trust her immensely; she is sharp, fast and highly knowledgeable. I would recommend her and her team to anyone wanting to reconstruct an outdated website or anyone who is need of developing their very first site and are apprehensive. I'm pretty sure she has a minor in hand-holding :-)

Jacinda took my incoherent babble of ideas and gave me two logos to choose from, listened to my little tweaks and gave me honest advice when my ideas were going to affect the design. Would definitely recommend!

    I had experience with three other web hosting companies Pryor to working with Joe and Brenda and I have to say the comparison between Joe and Brenda and my previous web designers is like the difference between night and day. Joe amd Brenda have their ducks in a row and their websites work no matter whether you're on a tablet a desk computer or a phone which by customers really appreciate. My updates are done promptly and I survive without broken links misaligned pages and scrambled pictures things that were all common ocvuranced with my previous web hosting companies. If you want a reliable and dependable web hosting and web design company Joe and Brenda are the people you need to work with especially if you are like me and don't have a good understanding of how to keep up a website. They make it easy so I can go do the things that I do best. -- Randy Rundle fifthaveinternetgarage.com

      About

      I began designing as a hobby for the challenge it presented; however, after I have had ten years of experience, it has transformed into a way to connect—to connect a design with the identity of the client, but even more importantly, to connect with you. In today's competitive industry of marketing and advertising, to connect your identity to a design is defining for you. Not connecting with you is to disconnect your design and your product or service. Whether your need is to engage, inspire, communicate a message, or increase interest, I will meet with you to obtain the design you desire.

      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.
