Are you in the market for finding a qualified, experienced, professional designer? Are the quality and results of your design projects important to you? Do you actually care how you are showing up for your clients? Is your goal to get your message delivered in an attractive, clear and compelling way? If you answered yes to any of this, you need a graphic design pro. As in PROfessional. And, I get it, it's hard to wade through all the profiles and responses that you get on a platform like Thumbtack. So let me help you cut through all that. Book Sergio, right now. He is the real deal - an artist with the expertise, technical design skills, creativity and real world experience. You are missing out if you don’t click the button and order up your next design project from Sergio, before I book him solid. I'm a mom - this feels like sharing your best babysitter's phone number. (Risky, the next time date night comes around) One more thing, if your project is going to require commercial printing or other output - such as signage or banner - don't chance it by hiring a rookie - creating a design that looks good on the screen - is different than creating for output. There are not enough stars on this app to tell you how great it is to work with Sergio. And, here's the sprinkles on top, he happens to be an awesome human, who someday, I hope to share a spicy margarita with. Why are you still reading...click the button. Hire Sergio.

    I worked with AJ Productions in July and knew I came to the right place. The selection of what was chosen in the designing of the page speaks to you. I felt strong imagery that spoke to the images in my mind. That’s why I stick with AJ Productions. They always deliver when it comes to your vision. Thanks, I’ll be back again!

      Amoyod web designers were a pleasure to work with! Joe was personable, professional and on top of the project. This is the first experience with a designer where I didn't have to call and ask how my project was coming along, in fact it was the opposite, Joe kept calling me for the items he needed to complete the project. He spent time training me to use the site to make updates myself always using terminology I understood. I started recommending Amoyod before my site was complete and will continue to do so.

        One phone call and i gave the details to what i wanted in my video. 2 hours later we had a proof for 4 TV spots that were similar. 2 hours after approval the TV spots were done in a timely manner. Happy to say we did business with such a professional Company. They also gave us 25% off of what my original Ad Agency charged. Highly Recommend.

        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

        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.

        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.
