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.

Excellent, across the board. Very pleased with the service and final product. Couldn't be happier. I hired Markon Brands to fix and finalize my company website. Originally I had hired another web designer to do this, but met only with foot dragging, mediocre product, and in the end a request for more money to finish it. Out of frustration, I turned to Thumbtack and found these folks. They were very friendly, helpful. And quick. They greatly improved my website, added extras and helpful suggestions, and were a pleasure to work with. To top it off, I also view their services as an excellent value for the dollars spent. No joke, if you're looking for professional web design and marketing, look no further than this group. They can do the job quickly and are easy to work with, and their final product will exceed your expectations. Doubly so if you're a smaller company with a limited budget. Top value and great experience. Can't recommend high enough. 5 stars fully earned. Thank you Kristine and Mike!

Stacie did a business website for me. I am an interior designer so details are essential to me when I was looking for a professional web designer. Stacie was completely receptive to my ideas and she brought a creative edge I needed to break out of my box. I wanted something I didn't need to worry about being outdated for many years. She was organized and had me on a schedule within my comfort zone to getting the site done. I continue to work with Stacie on updating content and she is available and follows through with my vision. It's a pleasure working with her! I have recommended Dynamic Designs to other small business owners and I've seen how she is helping them organize and structure their thoughts to keep them focused on the goal of getting a great site. Thanks a million Stacie!

Anvans' Computer Repair is an expert at solving computer and network issues, moreover; his passion and commitment far exceeds what I have encountered with some others in his industry. I have on numerous occasions posed general computer and IT questions and, in every case, Andrey came back to me with a detailed and thoughtful response. When I chose Andrey and Anvans' Computer Repair to set up my new computer network, I knew I was getting more than technical expertise. I was also getting the best possible support from someone who genuinely cares about my business success. I wholeheartedly recommend Anvans' Computer Repair for all of your IT and computer needs. He’s simply the best!

    I have worked with Whit on a series of ads and landing page for an industrial b-to-b client, as well as a poster and printed program for a nonprofit concert. He is a joy to work with - with great concepts, quick to understand the central concept and a real design pro. And his rates are ridiculously affordable.

      Crux boosted my WP site by customizing all the tweaks I didn't know how to fix. Aaron was great and patient as I changed my mind several times--he was quite understanding when this happened and we got the work done. He was efficient and produced high quality work--thanks Aaron!

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
