Valerie did an excellent job updating and designing our websites. She is efficient, and quick to complete the task that is set before her. What I had originally planned to be only a few tweaks, quickly turned into a month long venture. Despite the added work and time, Valerie was always exceptionally pleasant and helpful. I would highly recommend Valerie to everyone who is updating their site, or even starting one from scratch.

NOVA has an awesome team. Their customer service is incredible. I asked for so many changes on a single design and they were kind enough to accommodate our requests. The pricing was the best across the land, and believe me that helps for a cash strapped Small Business. Their constant reassurance and willingness to work with us even when the job is closed is why we will use them for any future web design needs. Thank you so much team NOVA we wish you all the success in your business.

      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!

      About

      I’m Brandon DeLoach, a graphic designer specializing in brand identity (logo, letterhead, brochures, posters, etc), illustrations (digital and by hand), and web design. I create visual identities for companies of all sizes, from large corporations to one-person start-ups. I’ve helped clients in Georgia, North Carolina, DC, Virginia, California and many other locations across the United States. Although I work from my home office, I have a strong network of contacts in the design scene, from whom I continue to learn a great deal. Some of my greatest achievements include receiving the Governors Honors Award and the Scholastic Arts Award. I received my high school diploma from Lovejoy High School in Hampton, Ga. I have already obtained a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Washington and I am presently attending Anne Arundel Community College to obtain an Associates degree in Computer Web Development. I am currently working for the government as a graphic designer (I have been in this position for the last three years) some of my duties in this position include but are not limited to designing websites, planning and producing corporate reports, producing promotional materials such as displays and brochures, and finding the best way to communicate a message by using print and electronics through evaluating color, type, illustration, photography, animation, and other print techniques. My job and desire to learn compel me to stay up-to-date with all required software (Adobe Suite- Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, etc.) necessary to complete various design projects and I work with them on a daily basis. In addition to Adobe Suite, I am also proficient in HTML/CSS and I am continuously advancing my knowledge in other web languages. My passion for the Arts has always been supported by my family and friends and they continue to motivate and inspire me. I am proud to announce that I have been happily married for two years and am now expecting my firstborn this year. With this strong support system behind me, I strive to be the best artist I can be with every project, be it small or large. My motto is and has always been "millionaires are individuals who are willing to do now, what most people don't want to do until later." I am always willing to work hard, learn, and expand my portfolio. If you are viewing this site and we have not worked together yet, I certainly look forward to working with you in the near 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.

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
