I requested 5 Snapback caps to be customized with an embroidered patch of logo/design of my own and it came out better than I actually expected. I absolutely love how the stitching looks like its apart of the cap. The every letter, circle, and star is perfect. Professionally done!! I love it!! The Customer Service was great as well. He responded immediately to every message since I placed my order & was polite and attentive when I picked up my order. I will definitely be working with this company again.

Working with TechBear they were very prompt with their responses, and very direct with my questions and concerns. When I started off the project of them designing my family’s exterminating business, I wasn’t sure which direction to go and gave TechBear all creative freedom, and they came up with great work, all for great pricing!! I will continue to work with TechBear

My business really needed help marketing. We mainly use to operate through word of mouth and didn't have much knowledge about SEO/SEM or the backend of a website. Priya was really helpful in understanding what our company needed and her prices were amazing compared to other marketing companies we spoke to. Overall, I had an amazing time working with Mystic Web Designs and plan on continuing to do so in the future.

Noelia was fabulous! She was professional, reliable and very patient with our newborn and toddler twins. We did fresh 48 and newborn session with her. She made us feel very comfortable during the sesion and the way she handled my newborn baby was amazing. The pictures turned out stunning. She guided us thru the printing process and we got the most amazing art work for our house. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the Fantastic Website! "When I made a choice to bring my business to the Internet, I was clueless about web design. Sure, I could have used a site template to design my site, but I wanted a super professional website to represent my company. I made the choice to go all out and to hire a web design/development SEO service to do the site designing for me, and out of the services I found, I felt that GetMeOnTop.com had the most to offer. I was right - the services supplied by GetMeOnTop.com have been incredible, and my website is flawless. I get a good deal of web visitors every month and my online company is turning a great profit! It is definitely worth working with this SEO and web design firm!"

I have been trying to get a logo designed for my company for about a year and a half now and didn't know what to do. Thankfully, i got in touch with this company and they changed everything for me. All i had to do was show and tell them the design i had in mind and they brung it to life! Other designers over charged for logo design like for over $1000, and other were cheap but so was their quality. Studio Fun House is not only affordable, they listen, they sketch out different designs to help you and they won't try to play you in to spending more money than you need to. Anytime my brand ever needs something designed, i'm coming back to Studio Fun House.

I tapped Markell to design a character for an album cover concept I had. As the process began to unfold, his insight and his artist vision began to override even my initial idea. As the first piece began to take shape, the quality and beauty of the artwork inspired me to expand on the initial concept to include more characters from the album to be included in the artwork. His ability to listen to a song, and create the visual of the character was inspiring to watch. His artwork and vision are flawless. He created beautiful characters that are proudly displayed as the artwork for the record. Amazing job!

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 much does it cost to create a logo?

Logo design is an important part of your company’s brand development. More than an image with text and color, a logo communicates the tone and personality of your company to your potential customers. Hiring a graphic designer with an appealing portfolio and quality reviews is a solid start to creating a winning logo design. The cost to create a logo can depend on how in-depth the marketing and design services you request are. Designers can create one logo in multiple formats (horizontal, vertical, etc.) to fit both your website and social media platforms, they can create a variety of designs for clients to select from, or they can create multiple logos for one client who needs branding for more than one venture. Logos may be text-only, text and image, or image-only. Many designers and design firms charge by the hour for their services, while other companies offer packages bundled with design services. Here are some examples of cost:

  • National average cost to hire a logo designer: $170-$250.
  • Average hourly rate for a freelance marketing consultant: about $150.  
  • Tiered pricing for logo design packages from one firm:
    • Package One: $200 for three logo concepts, three rounds of revision, and a variety of format and color end designs.
    • Package Two: $350 for 10 logo concepts, unlimited rounds of revision, and a variety of format and color end designs.
    • Package Three: $550 for everything included in the Package Two, plus business card design, letterhead design, social media graphics and an email signature.
    • Package Four: $850 for everything in the Package Three, plus custom brand guidelines, which outline a strategy for creating a consistent branding in the client’s business.

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.
