Jeff contacted me within minutes after posting my first job on Thumbtack. He created an ad for my company to place in a directory for more exposure. Jeff was absolutely awesome, he was in contact at all times. It never took him more than an hour to reply to any questions or changes throughout the whole process (which happened OFTEN since I am new to this process). He was able to take what I gave him, and produce a great final product in such a short period of time! He also went above and beyond his duties and edited our company logo to make it more crisp and better resolution, which he provided to us at no cost. His price is the best that I found, and I was skeptical since It is much lower than many of the other graphic designers on the site. However, I would recommend Jeff and will definitely use him again in the future.

Working with Jennifer was easy and enjoyable from the first conversation onward! She brought valuable knowledge regarding blogging to my project, her editing was impeccable, and her timeliness made sure that I made our agreed timeline for outputs. I would highly recommend Jennifer for anyone timid about jumping into public writing or a seasoned writer looking for a fresh perspective.

Tim & Michelle with FreshinUp have been wonderful to work with! They are very knowledgeable and responsive. They were able to get our small business up and running in no time, as we had no prior experience in building a website. We came to them with nothing at the start of this project, and they helped to guide us in the right direction, and design our website exactly as we had envisioned. I would highly recommend working with them!

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.

    Our new website is wonderful! Our students have reported better ease of navigating the website to find information about their classes and class schedule. The layout and design of the site is very intuitive and works across platforms, i.e on all mobile devices and on various browsers. We couldn't be more satisfied with the outcome. We highly recommend working with STUDIOWRX.

      Emily did a fantastic job helping me create my website's logo. She provided many ideas for me to choose from and was patient with the changes I had. She has a keen eye for design and her bubbly personality and positivity is matchless.

      After we brought on our first large client (fortune 500 corporation) we needed to re-design our website - this was especially critical as our company provides clients with a web-based platform. One of my mentors recommended I use Aleah for the design work. Aleah was extremely professional, outlining an exact timeline for deliverables and iterations. Aleah's initial design was so great there was little need for any revisions. Our clients loved the layout Aleah designed and it provided increased credibly for us as we demoed the product for other organizations. Aleah's excellent work led me to re-engage her on our next design project, re-doing our main website. I gave Aleah limited direction on this, wanting to see how she brought the vision to life, and she nailed it! I will use Aleah for all my future design needs. She is highly professional, a perfectionist and a great designer. She has my highest recommendation!

      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 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.

      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.
