Metro Create captured my attention immediatley with their speed and professionalism once they reached out for a chance at the job, also the outline of pricing and how they intended to complete the job. The job was a simple logo, but the catch was I wanted it done within my preconceived thoughts and with my direction, the project was not ever cost prohibitive and MetroCreate Studios knew that but never once altered their original pricing, even though I had multiple holdups and changes due to corporate branding struggles with a product line I carry. I had the pleasure of working with Eric. Eric then took my ideas and my comparison photos and designed a logo on the first try without any other input from me other than the original discussion. There was no second edits or tweaks the first shot was what I was going for, that impressed me, greatly. Since the original interaction I have since met Eric in person and am going ahead with web designs, Facebook, business cards, and line cards. I have also contracted him to design a logo for a close friend of mine who is just starting a new business himself. His attention to detail, note taking and after conversation follow ups are some of the best I have ever had, within any field. Eric is a rarity, in a world of poor designers who take little interest in a project that may take longer than others, or who churn out sub par designs at a premium just to move on to the next project. If you are contemplating using MetroCreate and Eric and have read this entire review know this you will be contacted by numerous "designers" most with shut down websites, broken portfolio links, some with plagerized artwork who will tell you that the up front cost will vary due to numerous conditions. Eric gave an extremely fair price, worked hard to understand what I was looking for and turned out a logo I am proud to associate my company with. He will be doing everything for me for the foreseeable future due to the professional relationship we have going. You will not be disappointed in his work, attitude or sense of urgency. And if you ever wish to contact me to discuss Eric by all means, ask him for my number and I will gladly go over my experience.

On exceptionally short notice, we asked Jennifer to help is provide a painting activity for a 14 year old girl's birthday party with nine girls. Jennifer was a great communicator in the planning, developing a very good plan for the event, and did a nice job describing what she would do and what was needed. She showed up on time with all the required materials, and quickly engaged the group. The girls had a great time, completely absorbed and engaged in the activity. Jennifer had just the right approach to coaching and helping them, and they not only produced interesting paintings, but deeply enjoyed the activity. We would enthusiastically recommend her for similar situations, and I suspect she hasn't seen the last of our family.

I knew very little about web design when I hired Compete Now and was a little apprehensive about taking on such a project. Once I started working with Donato I realized we were in good hands. I found it amazing how easy Donato and his team made it for us to create a new website. Not only was the process smooth and seamless, the design, usability and creativity by far exceeded our expectations. Donato and his team had great ideas on how to improve the look and functionality of the site. The website is visibly appealing, the pages load quickly and the site is easy to navigate. Their team was very professional and responsive; they delivered a great product on time and within budget. We would highly recommend the Compete Now design team for anyone looking to modify an existing site or create a new site. Thank you all for a job well done!!

I've been working with the Hink Creations team since 2008 before Hink Creations came to be. It's always a blessing when you meet talented AND cool, down to earth people to work with! One of the first projects was a children's CD where Ryan Hinkle and I co-produced and wrote together! It's important to me to give back to the youth and this project is a huge step in that direction. Nikki Hinkle and I assembled and worked with a team focused on illustrating, animating, CD cover and web designing for this project and will work together for future endeavors. It feels great when long-term ideas come to fruition on a personal and professional level. Ryan and Nikki are knowledgeable and adept at carrying out the artist's vision through music production and web design and anything visual. This is because they listen well and communicate clearly and are passionate about what they do. The team would cordially point out areas where I can improve, strengthen and clarify in the music, poster and web design to enhance the quality of the project. We always moved steadily along; the balance of efficiency and patience! All three of us speak about ongoing education so there's humbleness in the room too which always helps to increase the quality of service. Nine years later and I still look forward to working with the Hink Creations team! You will be glad you made that decision!

In 2001 Kristina designed my book and we worked on it for at least six months if not more. She was wonderful to work with, calm, steady and professional. The book was published in 2002, Wood, Wind and Water A Story of the Opera House Cup of Nantucket and remains a classic for all those who have a passion for racing and building classic yachts. Thanks to Kristina's design it remains a beautiful book and a collectible book worth owning. Anne T. Converse

Our public relations firm engaged Keza Media to develop a new website a few years back. The firm was great to work with, very reliable and knowledgeable. They gave us a variety of pricing options to choose from and really listened to what we wanted in a website. We continue to be happy with the results. We've had people call and say they contacted us because they looked at our website and it really depicted who were are as a company (Texas PR firm). Since engaging Keza to develop our site, we have been able to raise the visibility of our firm and grow our business. The site has both helped us with new client leads and strategic positioning. In fact, we were so pleased with the whole experience, we wrote a blog article on it. http://hopkinspr.com/index.php/duck-duck-goose-finding-web-development-company-that-is-right-for-you/

Mr. Keith Rude did an exceptional job assisting me with a logo and website for my business. Right from his initial phone call, which was the same day as my Thumbtack request, he was professional and courteous. He clearly communicated his service and was upfront with his fees. His price was extremely competive with the other quotes I received. I decided to partner with Keith because he was prompt with his initial call and was very professional, but also friendly and personable. His work was exceptional! Keith is very talented. He was very generous with his time and was a pleasure to work with. Because of Keith I am very pleased with my first experience with Thumbtack and will certainly use Thumbtack in the future.

Wow! This company sent me a professional organizer to go through mountains of paperwork that were brought to the house when my husband closed his office. Sharlene didn't even blink when she saw all the organization that needed to be done. She arrived at our house ready to work and she took care of emptying boxes, organizing storage of files, setting up new files, shredding old paperwork (financial and work related), and then she took some items out of the house (the best part!) to give them to charities and other people who were looking for old electronics, etc. When she wanted more work, I had her go through closets to organize and collect for donation clothing that we no longer wear. Sharlene is professional, pleasant, knowledgeable, hard working, fast and efficient, and interested in what she does. I have worked with her partner, Diana, just a little bit, but it was not to hire her for her web and computer and house decorating (staging?) capabilities -- I don't need help with any of those areas right now, but I would call her if the need comes up. All in all, I recommend this company without hesitation and I would call them again knowing I will receive qualified assistance with household and/or business related projects.

About

Greetings! My name is Nancy Marland Wolinski, and I am the principal of Marland Design. Marland Design was founded in 1990 after accumulating seven years of experience as a designer and art director in a variety of business environments -- mostly consisting of high-tech and consumer publications. For over 25 years, I have designed corporate identity, brochures, advertising, direct mail, catalogs, publications and websites for companies throughout North America. The best work comes out of the best relationships. That's why I strive to offer my clients a very personal kind of one-on-one service while instilling a sense of trust and reliability. Good design depends on the immaculate crafting of details as well as an intelligent overall concept. I have purposefully kept Marland Design small so that I can keep a close handle on the work and be responsive to client's needs. I believe that a cooperative and talented team produces the most effective work. In addition to collaborating with you and your team, if your project requires copywriting, illustration, photography, or special Web programming, I can assemble and manage that team. In over 25 years as a designer, I have developed a stable of highly skilled, creative professionals.

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.

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.

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 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.
