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!

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/

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 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.

How do you hire a web designer?

You’ve determined that the best way to create a professional, modern, mobile-friendly new website is to hire a professional web designer to build it. To hire the best person for the job — and to get the web design that best fits your company’s identity — it’s important to ask a few key questions:

  • What’s the scope of the work? Will the website be basic with just a few pages about your company, its services, and contact information? Or will it also have an e-commerce section for online shopping, a blog, or content for visitors to download? Before you hire a web designer, make sure you have a thorough, specific list of the components you must have the designer include in the web design.
  • What do you want your website to look like? Consider websites that are similar to the one you’d like to build, ideally in the same industry or serving similar types of customers. Build a set of examples of types of pages, design aspects, and website features that you can hand off to the web designer — the person you hire should have experience creating websites with the features you want. If they don’t have the right skill set, they’re not the right pro for you.
  • What’s the web designer’s start-to-finish process? What will the final deliverable be? Before you hire someone, make sure their availability works with your timeline and that their process meets your expectations. Most important is finding a web designer who will work collaboratively with you to create a successful online presence.
