When I first sat down with Eduardo expecting to quickly relay my ideas for a logo, I hadn't expected to share my career plans with him. Colors, concepts, and visual graphics became incidental as we shared life experiences, discussed career paths, and labored through several iterations of the logo--I was a picky client, frequently asking how the graphic would turn out if we tweaked the colors or lines a certain way. Eduardo would willingly oblige with his characteristic response, "there's only one way to find out!" I haven't worked with many graphic designers but I'm certain that there aren't many like Eduardo Norell who truly makes the effort and time to understand what the customer wants and is also competent, genuine, and inspirational. I will gladly work with Norell Designs again.

My house is nearly finished, but there was something missing with the décor and I was having a hard time figuring it out. I just needed someone with design knowledge to run some ideas by who could give me some feedback and advice on a potential wall color change, new area rug, etc. Sarah was very fun and easy to work with and helped me make some decisions that I am very excited about and am confident will finish off my space the way I hoped. Other designers responding to my post had a lofty minimum fee, but Sarah was willing to come for just an hour and her rate was very reasonable.

I met with Laura regarding a project that ended up requiring an architect vs a designer so I didn't get to work with her. I will say, however, that she is VERY nice, easy going and down to earth. Her fees are reasonable and she is willing to go the extra mile. Her strengths seem to be accessorizing and choosing colors. Lovely website and love the company name!

When I hired Sharon Hocking to come in and do a complete Interior Design of our Living and Dinning Rooms I had no idea just how wonderful this experience would be. Sharon was excellent to work with and listened to all of my concerns, ideas and suggestions. She was very communicative and prompt when we would set up meetings. Her attention to detail is beyond anything else I could have done on my own. Because I still work full time Sharon was able to do all of the leg work and then some. The next time I get ready to do some more decorating in my home Sharon will be the first and only Interior Designer that I will hire.

Markon was recommend to me by a friend to help with the branding and website for our new company. Kristine and Micheal were amazing through the entire process. I explained to them exactly what I was looking for, they listened asked a lot of questions and NAILED IT! Through out the entire process they were very accommodating, patient and had a can do attitude, there was nothing they couldn't do. The website they built for us is perfect incorporating tools to help grow our real estate business and making all of my ideas and needs for the business met. They always kept me on track and pushed me along to keep the project moving. They also helped with our business cards in which turned out amazing and I have sent them multiple people who have asked me who designed them. They made the process so easy from the start. I am so glad that I picked them to help me with this massive project. They truly went above and beyond and we are very grateful we choose them!

John Rank helped with remodeling our basement. It was a major job that included changing a large crawl space into a living room. It took about 12 weeks to complete. John is great to work with. He is very organized and keeps everything running smoothly. He is very good at keeping engineers. individual contractors and inspectors coming/going on schedule. He kept us informed of any issues that came up. The quality of work is great - we are so happy with the finished area, especially the built in cabinetry that John did himself. The only thing that could have been better is to have more time to order specific finishes and to be more involved in the design of the entertainment center.

First and foremost she is wonderful! I found Ashley through her Etsy page where I bought one of her fabulous pieces. I'm one of those people that knows what they like but can't quite figure out how to put it all together. I saw on her page that she also does interior design and because of what she offers in her store I thought she would be really helpful in helping me discover my style. And she did! She worked within the furniture/decorative pieces I already had and also helped me find new features for my room. It all came together great and is exactly what I wanted. She was very collaborative in that she worked with me on what I liked/didn't like, taking inspiration from what I already owned and finding new, unique pieces that she thought would work well in the space. I couldn't be happier! And I'll definitely be recruiting her again soon and keeping an eye on her Etsy page for new finds!

From the first initial consultation I knew immediately I wanted to work with Skyline. We met up with Jacob and Brian. They answered all of my questions, explained new concepts to me, and suggested great ideas. Skylines own website looked very professional and well made and that was very reassuring to me. Olivias design was exactly what I was looking for. She really listened to what I wanted and created a website which was beautiful, easy to navigate, informative but not overwhelming. Through out the entire process, I received outstanding communication about what stage we were in, and any question or concern was answered in an extremely timely fashion. Very pleased with the service I have received and definitely look forward to working with them some more!

    This is a LONG overdue review for the wonderful services provided by Jay over at Hospitality Defenders. I came across Hospitality Defenders by chance a few months ago and was sharing with Jay how frustrated I was that I had a business but not a working website and how difficult it was for me to find a web designer that was good and within reasonable budget. Jay offered to meet with me and gave me a free consultation. Immediately after our first meeting, Jay sent me a proposal along with different layout choices, different themes, website content info that he'd need to put together my website.I was a bit overwhelmed but SUPER EXCITED that I found a vendor that knew exactly what I wanted AND knew how to get it for me. I quickly sent Jay all the info that I wanted for my website and he sent me a preview of the website within 2 days! He requested some pictures for my website but I was so busy and lagged on this part. But as soon as I sent it to him, it was uploaded onto the website. When Jay sent me the finished website to look at, I had little changes here and there that I wanted at the last minute and he was SO PATIENT with me and was SUPER RESPONSIVE. The final product far exceeded my expectations - I LOVE MY WEBSITE! Thanks so much, Jay! You're awesome!

    Wanted to get my studio designed without breaking that bank. Misty helped narrow down the requirement and the budget. She was helpful in picking up the furniture and design layout. The only concern is the time taken in getting all the pieces of furniture. I was hoping that it could be done in one shot but since there were a few custom pieces, delay was unavoidable. Highly recommend Misty.

    Sarah helped us bootstrap our ADU project from a few basic designs I had created to get us ready for plan review and permitting. We're still working on the latter, but her work has contributed significantly to moving us forward. I highly recommend working with Sarah.

    We hired Threshold Web Design to makeover our antiquated website and are thrilled with our new, slickly designed customer website. Their web development savvy and branding help resulted in a website we could be proud of. The CMS they use is exceedingly friendly for us to use and means that we can change our site’s content on the fly with ease. We would highly recommend them for anyone looking for a professional website or branding help.

    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.
