I chose Eric to design a logo for my new company, and I wasn't sure what I was looking for. Eric offers the perfect combination of guidance + receptivity. He listened to my thoughts about the business, asked some concise questions, and came back the next day with several different amazing samples including "The One." I had expected a longer process and my interaction with Eric over the phone was so comfortable and productive that I wouldn't have minded that - and he made sure to let me know that our back and forth was unlimited until we got the design just right - all for the very reasonable price he quoted me at the beginning. I'm looking forward to working on my new website with Eric - I will also recommend him to any of my friends and colleagues who need design work. He's a dream! Thank you Thumbtack (and Eric). :-)

I had the pleasure of being the Sr exec that approved Nellie's hire at Cybex. We had several graphic designers before that time but none that made the positive impact that Nellie did when she started. She is an extremely talented graphic designer who has an excellent grasp of the adobe suite of products and their application in the creation of a wide variety of marketing materials. Once Nellie started with Cybex, we were able to take much of the graphic design work done by outside agencies and bring it in-house. This improved not only the throughput but also the quality of the work at the time. Since then her capability has grown significantly and she has been involved in everything from creative development, photo shoots, and layout design all the way through final material production coordination. In addition, Nellie's pleasant disposition and can do attitude and ability to work as a team player impressed me from the beginning. Ray Giannelli SVP R&D

I had the pleasure of working with Steve on a local political campaign. He was brought on board to do all of the campaign's video work, and he went far beyond the call! Steve was extremely professional, punctual, used his own equipment and delieved a unique perspective in terms of developing the video concepts. He also created all of his own graphics for the video, which were exceptionally well done. Simply put, Steve is the best! I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of his wide ranging skill-set.

Hands down, Keith Patankar (Patankar Photography & Design) is one of the best photographers here. I often say that Keith makes us (Startup Stir) look like rock stars. He is great at what he does.

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!!

Felice is an imaginative and conscientious designer always willing to go the extra step. I know when I give a project to her that she will respond with a large number of designs and work closely with me to fine tune the final product. She's also extremely quick which is something that I truly count on when responding to a sometimes impatient client (me)!

Dmitriy did a web-site and a brochure for our business and has done a phenomenal job implementing our vision. The project included several stages, including flash, illustrations etc. He has been a great listener and always stayed on top of all tasks and deadlines. We have put him through multiple updates and redesigns as our business evolved and I would recommend his services to anybody looking for a tailored, custom solution for any graphic design needs.

HMdesign created our church logo. Heidi went back and forth with us until we found a design that pleased an entire church board—no easy task! She listened to what was important to us and what we wanted to communicate as a church. We felt like she ‘got’ us. I highly recommend HMdesign. ~Community Congregational Church, Billerica, MA

Lindsay designed my Save the Dates and Invitiations for my wedding and was incredible. My wedding was fishing themed (not as redneck as you may be thinking) and she did such an incredible job incorporating that into everything. She was so creative and even somehow made the actual outline of my engagement ring and my husband's wedding band be part of it. I wouldn't hire anyone else for anything graphic design work ever. She's also in the process of designing a logo for a small business I am starting! She is so great to work with, she listens, doesn't get upset if you want changes made, she is professional, responsive and incredibly talented.

My husband and I asked Moira to design wedding invitations for us last summer and the product was gorgeous. We gave her a theme to work with and a few particular images, and she took it from there and created a beautiful work of art that we couldn't have imagined. I definitely recommend Moira to anybody -- I've admired all of her artwork and it never ceases to amaze 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.

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 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.
