After several poor experiences over the past few years with other web designers, we contacted Complete Web Services. Big difference, and I only wish we had found them first. CWS quoted a price, and a completion date, and hit both targets. Our website looks better than we expected, and constantly get complements. Our monthly hits have also increased and I attribute it all to CWS's work and design services. Highly recommended!

As the creative director and co-executive director of a small theatre company based in New York City, I have relied on Stan Gill's artistic craftsmanship and expertise many times throughout the years. He is creative, efficient, and treats every project with care and a personal touch. He communicates well and has often jumped through hoops to deliver exactly what I need. I highly recommend his services for any of your graphic and artistic needs.

    I'm an illustrator at heart but a designer at hand, meaning your logos are going to be clean cut but very artistic.

    My goal is to help you create the best online presence for your business. That usually involves a website, but there may be other online tools to promote your business. I can create graphics and logos for your small business so that you can put your best foot forward without breaking the bank.

    About

    Do you need an experienced website designer to help you achieve, or improve, your presence on the web? I am a freelance website designer/graphic consultant. I've been designing websites since the "dawn" of html raw code, and continue to keep on top of the latest software and methods for fresh, attractive sites. Using the latest web development software, I specialize in the design of websites for individuals, businesses, societies, etc. seeking to market their products and services online in a professional manner, at a reasonable cost. Further, I can work with you to design corporate or personal designs/logos (whether for websites or actual paper and ink printing) that will reflect your organization or individual tastes while still retaining a professional appearance. Please contact me for a free consultation regarding your, or your company's, online presence and appearance. Website Designing/Development Check out the portfolio on either of my websites - that's the best way to see what sort of designs I have created in years past. I am by no means the be-all, end-all website design solution for huge multi-national corporations - I'll admit that up front. However, if you are an individual, small-to-medium sized business, group or organization, I will likely be your best resource for creating attractive, clean, easy-to-navigate websites that won't break your budget. In fact, in recent years the complexity of website design has actually scaled back somewhat, primarily due to the ever-growing need for mobile browsing. For the moment, Apple mobile products can't view Flash files, which have been the staple of animated graphics and navigation. As more and more clients target iPad/iPhone users, the need for simple yet imaginative website design increases. I can work with clients to either design websites wholly from scratch, emulate pre-existing websites, or revamp a client's outdated website, all in a speedy and budget-conscious manner. Logo Design Whether you're a new business just getting off the ground, or a long-established firm in need of an overhaul, my extensive design experience lends itself to giving you a fresh face in whatever market you need to lead. Whether simple or elaborate, I can provide you with options to suit virtually every need. Business Card/Letterhead Design Many times a chance meeting with a potential client yields to lucrative business for both parties. And more often than not, such meetings are far too abbreviated for the parties to remember each other's names, let alone really get to know each other's businesses. A business card that stands out from the crowd - as opposed to the pre-perforated inkjet cards you've been printing on your home computer - is often the best way to attract a potential client's attention. And these days the options are virtually endless, from silk to heavy cardstock, from translucent to transparent plastic, double-sided full color to embossed logo, even unique shapes and sizes - and pricing on these unique cards continues to drop, making it all the more important that you take advantage of the widely varied options now available. Company letterhead is another reasonably-priced tool to attract and retain your potential customer's attention in a sea of competitors. The simplest tweaks to a business envelope or stationery will make the recipient remember your company. You can bet that your competition is making use of these tools. Brochures/Catalogs/Calendars/Newsletters/Menus Whether it's a simple door hanger for neighborhood marketing to full color catalogs, I can handle the complete design process, sourcing the highest quality, lowest cost printers best suited to your project. Again, volume color pricing on items from pamphlets to postcards, calendars to tabletop marketing, restaurant menus to monthly customer newsletters, makes it ridiculous not to make use of them. Having developed the widest variety of these marketing tools for a varied clientele over the years, I can make you stand out from your competition, always keeping your company at the front of the charge. Electronic Media/Communications Do you need help developing broadcast e-mail programs, updating your customer database with the latest happenings at your company, or announcing the latest product before the competition has a chance to mail out their catalog? Again, ever conscious of the possibilities, and limitations, of electronic marketing, I can help your company or organization fresh in the mind of your current and potential customers. Are you looking for something you don't see on the list? As I said, my design experience is very widely varied, whether we're talking about the type of marketing product, or the nature of the business being marketed. All you have to do is ask. It won't cost you a dime, and if I can't help you, I won't waste your timer trying to convince you to spend your money on me. That just leaves a bad taste in my potential clients' collective mouths, and as a lot of this sort of business is spread by word of mouth, the last thing I want to do is promise you something and not deliver up to, and beyond, your expectations.

    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.

    How much does it cost to create a logo?

    Logo design is an important part of your company’s brand development. More than an image with text and color, a logo communicates the tone and personality of your company to your potential customers. Hiring a graphic designer with an appealing portfolio and quality reviews is a solid start to creating a winning logo design. The cost to create a logo can depend on how in-depth the marketing and design services you request are. Designers can create one logo in multiple formats (horizontal, vertical, etc.) to fit both your website and social media platforms, they can create a variety of designs for clients to select from, or they can create multiple logos for one client who needs branding for more than one venture. Logos may be text-only, text and image, or image-only. Many designers and design firms charge by the hour for their services, while other companies offer packages bundled with design services. Here are some examples of cost:

    • National average cost to hire a logo designer: $170-$250.
    • Average hourly rate for a freelance marketing consultant: about $150.  
    • Tiered pricing for logo design packages from one firm:
      • Package One: $200 for three logo concepts, three rounds of revision, and a variety of format and color end designs.
      • Package Two: $350 for 10 logo concepts, unlimited rounds of revision, and a variety of format and color end designs.
      • Package Three: $550 for everything included in the Package Two, plus business card design, letterhead design, social media graphics and an email signature.
      • Package Four: $850 for everything in the Package Three, plus custom brand guidelines, which outline a strategy for creating a consistent branding in the client’s business.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
