Gene has done multiple events for our entertainment company from corporate picnics, high school post prom and grad parties, as well as private gatherings. He has also done a Christmas card for our family. Every experience has been wonderful from his professional presentation to his exceptional art work. I would recommend his services and talents to anyone seeking quality in illustration, graphic design or caricatures.

I needed a smaller website built in WordPress with a tight budget for a condominium community. Aaron from Knockout Media and I connected through my Thumbtack request looking for website design and development. I took a look at their website and it includes a nice portfolio of professional design and web work. We discussed the scope of work and commenced with the project. Our site was designed, built and launched in under six weeks. It's beautifully designed, very professional and completed in budget. Also provided guidance with domain registration, hosting, and a video tutorial for WordPress to make updates ourselves. I highly recommend Aaron and Knockout Media. I will hire Knockout Media again for future projects, and have already made a referral to another business colleague.

Ruby did a great job on my web site. Her follow through is excellent and her knowledge on web site design and SEO marketing is the best I have ever seen. Not only did she design my site,she did business cards, set up a Facebook page, and advised me on how to tie business listings to get better search results on Google. I am now on the first page of Google and could not be happier. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a web site or SEO marketing. PC1datarecovery.com

unlike art fairs where people buy what you have created. I create the vision of some one else. It is quite a challenge.

About

I have had about four years of experience cleaning houses for families in the Okemos area. My duties include vacuuming, sweeping, dusting, mopping, window cleaning, food preparation, grocery shopping, etc. I have had about three years of experience in graphic design. I have done freelance design involving marketing materials such as brochures, logos, and website work. I also have had a vast amount of catalog experience and layout work for a nationwide screen print, and embroidery company.

About

I'm not just about making money through my photography. I love the ART of photography. I think that there is something really cool about documenting your life in a tangible manner. As we get older, our memories fade, but photographs prove that those memories still exist inside our minds somewhere. The feeling of looking at an old photograph and being able to experience the emotions and thoughts all over again is amazing and I love to be able to capture that for people!

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 do interior designers do?

Interior designers do much more than pick complementary paint colors and choose matching furniture — although those tasks are important parts of the job. Unlike decorators, interior designers usually have an associate of science degree or certificate of achievement in interior design from an accredited program. They’re trained in drafting, lighting and computer aided design (CAD), and are experts in room-specific design and residential space planning. Interior designers use these skills to plan and design safe, highly functional and beautiful interior spaces, from kitchens and bathrooms to family rooms and bedrooms. They determine space requirements, work within building codes and inspection regulations, and meet accessibility standards. An interior designer’s day-to-day job includes creative and technical tasks, both of which often require great communication skills:

  • Creating model rooms and visuals using design software.
  • Researching different textiles, materials, finishes, lighting and furniture.
  • Hiring suppliers, vendors, and contractors.
  • Estimating costs and making bids on potential jobs.

How do you find a good interior designer?

For many homeowners, the difference between a good interior designer and a bad one is simply a matter of taste — but all good designers have similar skill sets. Interior designers usually have a degree or certificate in interior design, with training in design principles and lighting, drafting, and computer aided design (CAD) software. Good interior designers have strong color balancing skills and understand how different colors influence spatial perception and moods. They know the building and electrical codes in the areas where they practice, and they make sure that any contractors they hire also work to those codes. They are knowledgeable about different upholstery fabrics and draperies, stay ahead of residential design trends, and maintain their own individual creativity. Also, good interior designers have excellent space designing skills, so they can arrange a space efficiently and with ideal traffic flow. Ultimately, hiring a good interior designer means pinpointing one whose signature style is complementary to your personal style — so checking out many designers’ portfolios is a must — and whose communication methods match yours.

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
