I worked with Simon a DVD cover design project. His has great communication skills and was open to my ideas. The DVD cover designs came out looking very stylish, contemporary and unique. Just what I wanted! These creative designs, appeal to my target audience. and should have success in the marketplace for many years. I give this Artist 5 stars for his creative ability and communication skills, his personality is as cool as his art. Simon is a professionally skilled artist, and has added value to my products. I give his artwork my personal stamp of approval and recommend him to any entrepreneur or corporation. If you seek to add value to a product... hire Simon! I have 100% confidence in his ability and plan to work with him on new projects in the future. Note: Simon didn't just deliver a simple DVD cover design, he created a new image for my company, his artwork also sparked a theme that I used to create my entire website. I am grateful, Thanks Simon! Looking forward... Rueben M.

We just loved working with Susan! She worked within our budget, answered every call and text message, and knew exactly what I was wanting. She helped us with designer curtains and reupholstered my grandmas dinning room chairs. We can't wait to work with Susan again with our future projects.

We are a high end residential remodeling firm servicing the Chagrin Valley areas and have worked with Kathy and her Valley Design Team for a number of years. She never ceases to inspire us and our clients with her abilities and the vision she brings to a project. Her attention to detail is incredible and the passion and knowledge she has for interior design is evident in her designs. Kathy is also very conscientious regarding costs and she will work tirelessly to meet a client’s budget. Without reservation I recommend Kathy and her Valley Design Team for any interior design requirements a client might require. Large or small.

It can be difficult working with photographers getting commercial retail photographs since our marketing department has very specific needs. Matthew was very attentive to our requests and even went back to get more shots for us.

        My husband and I enlisted Katy to do our Save the Dates and wedding invitations when we got married, and she was fantastic! I'm not a creative type at all, and she did an amazing job at turning my very vague descriptions of what I wanted into products that were even better than I even envisioned. She was great to work with - she gave us a number of ideas and options to choose from and was very flexible about tweaking things until they were perfect. We received a TON of compliments on the design of our wedding invitations, and especially on her modern hand-written calligraphy. Over a year later we still find our Save the Dates hanging on friends' and family's refrigerators. Katy is awesome at what she does. I could not recommend her more highly!

        Keith is my general contractor and architect of choice for any of my home improvement projects. He is very conscientious of price and working within a budget while providing the most bang for your home improvement buck. He has no problems working with the home owner on design and budget to get you to your goal. I have used him on several major projects including a two story addition with basement, a partially covered deck and two basement remodels (the new basement and the original.) I highly recommend him.

        It was such a great experience working with Vanessa. Her vibe was fun, positive. She was open to suggestions. I would love the opportunity of working with her again in the future. The compliments are still flowing in from the quality of the photos.

        Ms. Platt is the epitome of professionalism and expertise. She came to my house and really listened to my needs. She reviewed the look of my house as a whole unit to see how it all fit together. Her knowledge of color, fabrics, layout, etc. helped transform my home into the vision of my dreams. She was very gracious and extremely responsive. I plan to use Ms. Platt this coming winter to complete my house. She is one of the most professional artists I know with my 30 years of business experience. Her work ethic and results are outstanding.

        Imaginative, creative, and unique: these are not just words. These are actions. I want to be someone whom people could count on. Now, there is a difference between counting on someone and delivering. I believe I can do just that. Design is more than a bunch of elements put together on a page. It's bringing something that you never thought possible to life and experiencing it for the first time.

        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 do interior designers do?

        Interior designers do much more than pick complementary paint colors and choose matching furniture — although those tasks are important parts of the job. Unlike decorators, interior designers usually have an associate of science degree or certificate of achievement in interior design from an accredited program. They’re trained in drafting, lighting and computer aided design (CAD), and are experts in room-specific design and residential space planning. Interior designers use these skills to plan and design safe, highly functional and beautiful interior spaces, from kitchens and bathrooms to family rooms and bedrooms. They determine space requirements, work within building codes and inspection regulations, and meet accessibility standards. An interior designer’s day-to-day job includes creative and technical tasks, both of which often require great communication skills:

        • Creating model rooms and visuals using design software.
        • Researching different textiles, materials, finishes, lighting and furniture.
        • Hiring suppliers, vendors, and contractors.
        • Estimating costs and making bids on potential jobs.

        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.

        How do you find a good interior designer?

        For many homeowners, the difference between a good interior designer and a bad one is simply a matter of taste — but all good designers have similar skill sets. Interior designers usually have a degree or certificate in interior design, with training in design principles and lighting, drafting, and computer aided design (CAD) software. Good interior designers have strong color balancing skills and understand how different colors influence spatial perception and moods. They know the building and electrical codes in the areas where they practice, and they make sure that any contractors they hire also work to those codes. They are knowledgeable about different upholstery fabrics and draperies, stay ahead of residential design trends, and maintain their own individual creativity. Also, good interior designers have excellent space designing skills, so they can arrange a space efficiently and with ideal traffic flow. Ultimately, hiring a good interior designer means pinpointing one whose signature style is complementary to your personal style — so checking out many designers’ portfolios is a must — and whose communication methods match yours.

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
