Wayne and L&K Construction did an amazing job! Not only was this difficult job constructed well, it was done ahead of schedule. Wayne is not only an expert carpenter but he has a great eye for design. I will definitely use him again for future design/build projects.

Working with Michelle was wonderful. As I had barely a notion of how I wanted the interior of our house painted, she came with an interior design, as well as professional painting background. Even when I was hesitant at a suggestion, she said "trust me," and it turned out great! Michelle sat down with me to go over different color schemes that would "flow" throughout the open first floor, with beautiful accent walls. She was responsive to my texts (I felt very comfortable leaving her alone at my home to paint as my husband and I were at work) and I felt we had good communication throughout the 5-day full house interior painting project. She had suggestions as to the "little things" that would highlight the rooms (things you could pick up from Home Goods, etc.) She even went so far, with my permission, to pick up curtains and other items and they were great additions — and I didn't have to do a thing except reimbursing her! She has a great eye for color and had suggestions that even my husband complimented her on. (A great darker color in our bathroom turned out beautiful; who knew?) She works alone and with her fiance on the weekends and always has a goal of what she wants to get done during a particular day. Moving furniture was not a problem, as most of my furniture is on felt (hardwood floors) and easy to move. She even fixed things on the walls as she came across them. Her work was very good and a great value. Now that I have the "bug," I will be bringing her back to do some more interior work, including a chair rail in the dining room, a backsplash in the kitchen, a kitchen valance curtain, refinishing dining room chairs, and more. Between her fiance and her, there is nothing in your house they cannot do. I highly recommend her!

J Oliveira Design Build is one of the best I have ever worked with. I hired them to paint most a condo that I bought, and they did such an amazing job. Fernando is punctual, kind, affordable, and most importantly, a talented and meticulous painter. The condo looks flawless. Fernando went above and beyond to make sure that everything looked perfect and even installed light fixtures and a bathroom cabinet. He also cleaned the condo as well and did a spectacular job. The condo looks fantastic and if I ever need painting or handyman work completed again, he is the only person I will call. I highly recommend J Oliveira Design Build to anybody looking for their home or business to be painted and/or cleaned.

The work Ralph has done for me on both a residential and commercial level has been second to none. Beyond his desire for perfection and unparalleled craftsmanship, Ralph is simply a terrific person who always goes the extra mile to ensure his customers are happy. Candidly, there is no better person to rely upon for home improvement and design than Ralph. A true professional and a true gem of a person!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Niki on a visual design project for Hink Creations. It was a challenging project with an aggressive timeline. Niki handled this with adept skill, continually providing me with quick and professional responses to questions I had throughout the project, offering constructive criticisms to the work I was doing and ultimately completed the project with an impeccably designed deliverable. Niki's communication skills are only surpassed by her aesthetically keen eye, making her an extremely talented designer and an ideal partner for any project.

Happy to write this review and tell all how great Lynda is! She designed a great product in my website. Her abilities and creative thinking are impressive and I was grateful to have them both! Lynda was patient with me through the process and has been right there to answer any questions thoughts and ideas I have for her. She jumped right on task and followed through no matter what I asked of her...going above and beyond for sure. I whole heartedly stand behind both Lynda and Pigeon Cove Graphic Design.

About

I am a firm believer that all design spaces should be a reflection of your personality. So, when I design your space it's all about how your space instills confidence while still portraying who you are: A minimalist that loves to curate art, a free spirit boho eclectic, a fun loving meets cozy because you love everything soft, or a traditionalist that appreciates cultures from all over the world. Whomever you are, I got the goods for you! I enjoy bringing a clients space into life in which they have always dreamt about. I also enjoy bringing solutions to my clients' home that they didn't even realize they needed help with...My job is to be a solution first, then be creative. Time is money, and my goal is to make every investment worth your time. Leave the effort to me!

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 do interior designers do?

Interior designers do much more than pick complementary paint colors and choose matching furniture — although those tasks are important parts of the job. Unlike decorators, interior designers usually have an associate of science degree or certificate of achievement in interior design from an accredited program. They’re trained in drafting, lighting and computer aided design (CAD), and are experts in room-specific design and residential space planning. Interior designers use these skills to plan and design safe, highly functional and beautiful interior spaces, from kitchens and bathrooms to family rooms and bedrooms. They determine space requirements, work within building codes and inspection regulations, and meet accessibility standards. An interior designer’s day-to-day job includes creative and technical tasks, both of which often require great communication skills:

  • Creating model rooms and visuals using design software.
  • Researching different textiles, materials, finishes, lighting and furniture.
  • Hiring suppliers, vendors, and contractors.
  • Estimating costs and making bids on potential jobs.

How do you find a good interior designer?

For many homeowners, the difference between a good interior designer and a bad one is simply a matter of taste — but all good designers have similar skill sets. Interior designers usually have a degree or certificate in interior design, with training in design principles and lighting, drafting, and computer aided design (CAD) software. Good interior designers have strong color balancing skills and understand how different colors influence spatial perception and moods. They know the building and electrical codes in the areas where they practice, and they make sure that any contractors they hire also work to those codes. They are knowledgeable about different upholstery fabrics and draperies, stay ahead of residential design trends, and maintain their own individual creativity. Also, good interior designers have excellent space designing skills, so they can arrange a space efficiently and with ideal traffic flow. Ultimately, hiring a good interior designer means pinpointing one whose signature style is complementary to your personal style — so checking out many designers’ portfolios is a must — and whose communication methods match yours.

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
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
