This company was amazing to work with. They had everything well organized from submitting a bid, use of electronic signatures, sending a proof of the design concept for me to approve in advance and excellent and friendly on sight service. In the end I also got a link to all of the pictures that our guests took that day which was so much fun to see. I would use them over and over again!

I contracted with Latoya to produce a high-quality logo for my business. She listened attentively and developed exactly what I had in mind - I was very pleased with the finished product! She is a skilled artist, with obvious expertise in graphic design and various other media.

Steve saved my computer! I am a graphic designer and use my computer extensively; however, a few months ago, I spilled soup on my keyboard and started having all kinds of issues with it. Nothing was working properly: fonts, programs, search functions, browser...nothing! I tried taking it to the Apple Store but they were charging $497 just to send it out to get looked at. That didn't even include what the repair might cost! Besides, I couldn't afford to be without my computer for that long. So I hit up Google and found Steve on Thumbtack. He was able to give me a pretty accurate diagnostic just via our messaging on Thumbtack when I told him the issues I was having. He also made a house call the NEXT DAY! He replaced my hard drive, saved 200 GB of data, re-installed my OS, and replaced my keyboard all for way less than the Apple store was charging for the initial diagnostic. My Mac is now working like new. Steve knows his stuff and is now my go-to for all things Mac (he also works on PCs). I would highly recommend him and already have to several family members. Thanks Steve!

As the owner of a small graphic design studio, I have enjoyed collaborating with JEB Design on multiple projects. Joe is a gifted, reliable, and trusted business partner. He not only helps turn my client’s ideas into reality, but also consistently exceeds our expectations. Joe is very easy to work with and is the first person I will reach out to when I need to add a professional illustrator to my team.

Valentia and company designed a first class site for me at a reasonable rate. I hated the "cookie cutter" sites that are so common on the web and wanted to stand out. Valencia created an awesome logo and site design for me, as well as made some great editing suggestions for my wording. The entire FatCat crew is very responsive, something you can only get from a smaller company. If you go with FatCat, you won't regret it.

Dujon @ Shadronics did an AMAZING job at designing and creating my website. All it took was one meeting with him, I let him know my ideas of what I pictured my website was going to look like, he took those and created a masterpiece. His insight and creativity are top notch. Highly recommend him and Shadronics, and I look forward to doing more business with them in the future!

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.
