I started working with Deb after attempting a kitchen remodel without a designer and realizing I needed help. In our first visit, she saved my $50,000 kitchen remodel by changing the paint color! Small things can make a major difference and Deb has a natural eye for those things. I do not have a huge budget which is why I did not hire a designer before. I falsely thought that designer = big bucks. It does not. I think I'm actually saving money because I no longer buy things because they're pretty and on sale. I'm more intentional about the "look" I'm going for. I highly recommend two things ... 1) get a designer and 2) schedule an appointment with Deb and just hear what she has to say

We (The MacGuys+) have been working with the team at Xceptional planning our new Web/internet/social media strategy. They are just what weve been looking for! A company that fully understands the integration between all our tools; Social media, CRM, Helpdesk etc. It is great to find a company that understands what it takes to be Awesome and has the depth of knowledge to understand that it takes a team of skilled people to tie all these pieces together into a comprehensive plan to drive business in a way that is sustainable with measurable results. Xceptional is all that and more. If your tired of a webpage that is nothing more then an online business card give Xceptional a call, they can take you to the next level.Tim NybergThe MacGuys+

AJ is both a friend and business associate. I wouldn’t recommend anyone more than him and his team. He is extremely personable and pays attention to even the smallest details. He has helped me with my site designs and he’s always great to bounce ideas off. I couldn’t be happier with the work The Launch has done for me!

I highly recommend Julie as an Interior Designer. She worked collaboratively with me. She is very creative but she also listened to my ideas and input too. Julie came up with ideas and items that I couldn't begin to think of or find. She is also very patient and exacting and looks until we find just the right item. I would hire her again!

Ann & Barrie were AMAZING!!!! Exactly what I was looking for! I hired them for 2 hours to got through my 3800 sq foot house and give paint ideas, decor and what to keep, what to update! We were in the midst of a remodel and needed some design help and direction. Absolutely fantastic, professional advice!! They worked within my budget and gave great inexpensive ideas!! Would use them in a heartbeat again. If you are to remodel and update things on your own, don't make a costly mistake- hire these designers! They give you great timeless, not trendy ideas- and know how to work with existing finishes and woods as well. Yes, they gave great ideas on how to work with my Golden oak in the house! I feel so much more at peace with the direction of the rest of the remodel! Very happy!

It was a pleasure working with Ben. By taking the time to fully understand my needs from the start, we were able to quickly achieve the results I was looking for. People who are knowledgeable about web design thought the cost of Ben's work was very reasonably. I highly recommend this designer.

Jack is a stellar collaborator with an ear and open mind for every type of music. We have worked together as professional singers and I have also been a client of his recording, post-production, album design, and album packaging services, most recently with The Rookery (www.rookerychoir.org). His live recording and re-mastering of existing tracks made for a compelling CD which sold well and helped to raise our local profile. I would recommend Jack for a variety of audio engineering needs; he is a student of life, and has been both prepared and flexible for a spectrum of clients and recording environments

I highly recommend Michelle and I believe she will be as much of an asset for another company as she was to mine. Michelle is a dedicated worker with many talents that are hard to find in marketing, graphic design, and copywriting professionals. She always gives 100% effort, she takes direction well, and delivers what the client wants. Michelle is phenomenal at figuring out how to accomplish any task given to her and she is willing to take on a great deal. She is attentive to small details that can make or break marketing concepts, has excellent interpersonal skills, and is truly gifted. Michelle has excellent writing skills and can handle subject matter she is not familiar with. If given an opportunity I think that you would soon realize how uniquely gifted she is on many levels and how she raises the bar for those working with and around her. I worked very closely with her and can personally attest to her talent, strong work ethic and prolific resourcefulness and problem-solving skills.

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 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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
