Max and the MOS team have been incredibly helpful with me and my business partner to date. He has not only advised us on the initial steps in development of our app, but also given anecdotal business advice as we worked through the steps to stand up our business.

Coldsmoke Creative got our business up and running from the ground up. They helped us with branding (logo creation), site content (copywriting), ecommerce (setup our products and integrated with a payment processor) and web development (created a member's only website with an e-course and forum). Once the site was built, they setup and managed our Facebook advertisements to help us get a steady stream of customers.

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.

Elevated Web design helped me with a complete website overhaul, which is a very difficult process. The mobile capability impressed me the most. Before Elevated Web Design my website couldn’t be open on an android or iPhone, now it works perfect on all mobile devices. Anytime I have questions a Representative is always available via phone or email, and is always very helpful and professional. I definitely recommend them! Laura B.

    Candice is a brilliant designer. We hired her to design our book covers and then fix the layout of the pages. Though we were indecisive because of all the great options, she helped us to tweak them and used our feedback to create layouts that far exceeded our expectations. We are now in the process of developing a website. Candice is highly skilled and patient web developer too!

    It's been great working with Tariq! He did an amazing job with bringing my first SaaS idea to life and we're almost done with the final phase of my second idea. I'm excited about the BETA launch because the development is ahead of schedule (despite me wanting to change/add some things), but the entire experience has been worth it. I highly recommend Tariq if you're looking for a developer who really knows what they're doing and doesn't mind including you throughout the process so you'll know (and be able to see) what's going on every step of the way.

      The advertising agency I work for gets very busy occasionally. We found Oxana through a former co-worker. She's been helping with presentations, web banners, and ads design. We were very satisfied with the quality of projects completed by Oxana and her excellent work ethic. Highly recommended!

      About

      While the work is subjective the biggest difference I have from many web designers is that I wasn't a "geek" by trade. I was in several other businesses prior to web design and understand that side of the equation well. Both as a small business owner and a consumer using the computer. Accordingly I focus on making sites easy to navigate for the end user.

      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

      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.
