Shayne is a life saver and my go-to guy for any graphic design and tech support needs. He's responsive, highly engaged, and pretty much works magic every time. Whatever you need, he can do it-- overlays, fightsticks, stream assistance. He has saved my @$$ so many times for so many different needs, there's never a reason to look for anyone else (and believe me, I did before I found Shayne.) Give him a try for yourself, his prices are ultra reasonable for professional quality. Highly recommend

Over the past 16 years, I have retained the services of Razorback Graphic Illustration for a multitude of projects for over 20 clients. On each occasion, Bryan has surpassed mine and my clients expectations. As a niche marketing company specializing in entrepreneurial startups, my clients have an array of graphic design needs including logo illustrations, web site design, social media networking and providing consulting on developing strategic marketing plans. He would even graciously provide technical support if one of my client's office computers malfunctioned regardless of the time of day or night. His pricing and professionalism have helped me grow my business throughout the years. He has an innate talent for listening to the client and then creating a logo or web site design that conveys his complete comprehension of their vision. However, what is even more important is that Bryan's designs uniquely and creatively deliver a motivating call to action message to the target audience. I credit my success and the success of my clients to his efforts. I am extremely fortunate to have him as associate and even more privileged to call him a friend.

About

I'm a graphic designer who studied traditional media, but quickly fell in love with Adobe CS and shortly thereafter CSS, jQuery, Flash, etc. Naturally, this led me into front-end development, where I've become well acquainted with a wide range of tools such as CMS, SVN/dev environments and a gamut of editors (but I still like Dreamweaver). Throughout my career, I've had the opportunity to help create campaigns for a wide variety of promotions and businesses. I've always enjoyed the process of working with clients to deliver their message across media; whether in the form of graphics, marketing concepts or site building.

About

I am an experienced graphic designer with over 15 years of professional graphic design experience. I started a design and print business so that I can assist clients in creating an image for their business that is visually impactful without having to invest a ton on advertising. My ability to create dates back to when I was in elementary school -- when my innate ability to draw became apparent. In junior high and high school, I won numerous awards including the NC Scholastic Gold Key Award. Directed by an art teacher, she persuaded me to pursue commercial art, which is now called advertising graphic design. After obtaining a degree in advertising design, I began working right away. I gained extensive experience in various fields including the sportswear design industry, sign industry, newspaper industry and advertising agency. I bring passion and this wealth of knowledge to my business.

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 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

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
