I hired Lorenzo to design a logo for my law office. He promised that he would not quit until I was happy and he delivered. Always prompt in responding and follows through with your request. I will definitely do business with Lorenzo again in the future. Thanks again Lorenzo!

I'm from Albany, NY and was looking online for a web designer to help me make an online boutique and blog. I met up with Ben and from day one, I trusted his abilities as a web designer.. and that could have been the best decision I made for my business!! He was knowledgeable, affordable, and was so SO kind!!! I showed him websites I loved and examples of what I wanted him to incorporate into my website. When he sent me over the preview of his work ...I was in utter shock! It was perfect... I'm sorry...BEYOND perfect!!! I was so impressed with his work! It's so professional and everyone I show says that it must have cost $20,000!!! The website was so much more than what I expected it to be. I'm so thankful I found Ben to help me create the start of my business! He was so easy to talk to and my whole entire experience was absolutely fantastic! Not to mention the fact, Ben just handed over the website to me and he said if I have any questions, comments, or need any help at all in the future I can always call him for help. Quality Service!!! I recommend him to anyone and everyone!!! Seriously check out his work, I think it speaks for itself! www.kyliej.com

The service Shaun Cotter provided was excellent. Shaun's communication with me was professional and customer friendly. He was available for questions and immediate when providing responses. A professional business gentleman. Shaun gave me only positive and valuable feedback and technological reasoning why my laptop was and in this case hard drive was damaged and unrepairable. While Shaun did provide alternatives for repair because the laptop was much older it was cost prohibited. I would not hesitate to reach out to Shaun again in the future for computer services.

My co-writer, Troy novelist Jack Casey, and I hired Ben Karis-Nix to hand illustrate a promotional image for our community theatrical event, "The Trial Before Christmas." Our home-grown holiday "mock trial" was a surprise hit in 2013 that garnered an impressive amount of national media attention. Therefore, in 2014, we decided that the project deserved a promotional image and line of merchandise worthy of its quality and to help us take the project to "the next level." Ben Karis-Nix delivered -- big time -- capturing all the right elements of what makes this production special and worthy of national attention, while conveying our heart-felt, home-grown, small American city values. In short, Ben nailed it on the first try. THE JOB "The Trial Before Christmas" is a full-blown, holiday courthouse trial to determine who really wrote 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, a beloved holiday poem that was first published anonymously in the Troy Sentinel newspaper in 1823. For nearly two centuries, two "Old New York" families have claimed that their ancestor -- either Clement Clarke Moore, or Maj. Henry Livingston Jr. -- is the true author of those magic holiday verses. Our trial is held in a real courthouse, with real trial attorneys, real court officials, a real judge, real expert witnesses, real descendants from both families, Christmas ghosts, a jury and many other spectacles. Ben's beautiful hand illustration features the two historical authors -- Livingston and Moore -- seated at their writing desks resting in the scales of justice. Looming over them is the image of Santa Claus, in a style reminiscent of Thomas Nast’s famous illustrations of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. The city skyline includes subtle references to Troy NY -- "Santa's Hometown." Ben created multiple variations of this image for use on a promotional poster, a holiday greeting card, and an artist's silk-screened print. These were eagerly purchased by many seeking a wonderful keepsake and I have no doubt they will be cherished for many years. I cannot speak highly enough of Ben's work. He is a true artisan, whose work is timeless. -- Duncan Crary, Author (Creator of The Trial Before Christmas) http://ChristmasTrial.com

Web designers plan, create and code web pages, using both nontechnical and technical skills to produce websites that fit the customer's requirements. They are involved in the technical and graphical aspects of pages, producing not just the look of the website but determining how it works as well. Web designers might also be responsible for the maintenance of an existing site. The term web developer is sometimes used interchangeably with web designer, but this can be confusing. Web developing is a more specialist role, focusing on the back-end development of a website and will incorporate, among other things, the creation of highly complex search functions. The recent growth in touch screen phones and tablet devices has dictated a new way of designing websites, with the web designer needing to ensure that web pages are responsive no matter the type of device a viewer is using. Therefore, the need to test websites at different stages of design on a variety of different devices has become an important aspect of the 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.

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.

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.
