I had the pleasure of working with Alexander to illustrate a logo for my blog (www.stuffedtothegills.net). I received quotes from other talented illustrators, but I was drawn (no pun intended) to Alexander’s enthusiasm and sincere interest in my project. Alexander is very professional, patient, and delivers a high-quality product. He was open to my suggestions, encouraged feedback, and kept me updated every step of the design. If you’re looking for an artist with passion, professionalism, and creativity, I highly recommend Alexander for your next project.

When we decided on the one we wanted the delivery was fast, she even met me to deliver them to save me freight..I would not hestitate to have Donna design for me again

Lana with 25M Design made me feel confident in starting my business again. I was stressing about branding and I was becoming more and more discouraged by the designers that I worked with before her who all failed to capture the essence of my company the way she did. I'm glad I chose 25M Design !

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

KickinEspresso has certainly exceeded our highest expectations. We're a small, family-run business in a particularly niche domain and for years had endured inadequate website support. As our company steadily grew, it seemed like our web support was on the decline and so we finally made the decision to invest in a high quality website. After weeks of research and interviews with several companies and shops we decided on Kickin Espresso. We have read and heard about so many horror stories with sub par web development companies and we've experienced a few of our own, so we were skeptical going in, but Kickin' Espresso more than delivered. They were up front and were able to give us an accurate timeline of when projects would be complete and they trained us on all features of our new website. We have over 5000 sku's on our site and they were able to design each page beautifully. Having done much research and experiencing the building of our new website by Kickin Espresso, I would not recommend any other company for your website needs. Business has never been better and that's no coincidence.

We used Nick for logo and graphic design work for our focus group recruiting business, Focus Roundtable. We were truly amazed by the quality of Nick’s work, and his ability to not only understood the messages and ideas we were trying to convey, but also his ability to improve upon them in ways we would never have been able to ourselves. We had initially considered using a much higher-priced graphic design firm that wanted to charge us 3-4x Nick’s rate, however the quality of his work was on par with or exceeded these much higher-priced agencies. We are so happy we made the decision to work with him!

So knowing you've got a good company that's value for money, trustworthy and professional makes all the difference.

We worked with Lee to provide us with an updated website and marketing strategy. Wow. Not only do we now have the best looking website in the pre-professional ballet space, but our enrollment for new students increased substantially--no doubt because of the strategy outlined by Lee and our refreshed brand. Lee's keen eye for detail and design sense is unmatched. He was also able to work with our third-party CRM and ticketing systems, integrating them right into the overall website framework. I would HIGHLY recommend Lee for any website/graphic design or marketing projects you may have

About

I maintain a healthy balance between functionality and visual impact in all my work. I believe every design can be a work of art. I take the time to understand exactly what my clients need in order to deliver a final result that is beautiful yet appropriate to their project. The best part of being a designer is being able to take client suggestions and requirements and turn them into something unique and perfect for them. Knowing that they are pleased with the design solution I've given them is the greatest form of payment.

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

What makes a good logo design?

A good logo is an easily identifiable, memorable image that represents your brand. A good logo design aligns with your business model and expresses your company’s core values. A good logo design is simple, appealing, and easy for customers and viewers to quickly process. Some of the key components of a great logo are type, color palette and design. The scale, font and arrangement of the text you select will all make a difference in the feel and representation of your brand. A graphic designer will help you home in on the colors that best represent your identity and help you keep the color palette simple. The design of your logo includes the shapes you select and the way the color and type are arranged together. Investing in the services of a professional to create your logo design is likely a smart investment for any size business. Nationally, the average price range for a logo designer ranges from $170 to $250.

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.
