Jason was a breath of fresh air for the PQ Media team in 2018, after we spent the prior two years struggling through an arduous and, ultimately, fruitless process with two other web designers/developers who over-promised and under-delivered. In contrast, Jason's positive attitude, responsiveness, work quality and ROI thus far on this critical website redevelopment project has been top-notch, and we will use his services again.

I am an independent Christian musician and speaker and to make things a bit more interesting, I have also been blind since birth. It is vital that I am able to trust those who do graphic design work for my albums, promotional materials, Web site and Blog. Sara has designed album covers for my CD's, designed my current promotional flyer, and assisted me in rendering the images which I post on my blog. I continue to receive compliments on the quality of her work and know that I can always count on her to provide quality graphics and technical assistance in a timely manner.

    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.

    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.
