Joel has been helping my husband and I update our logo and many other business materials for the past few weeks. Our company logo was very outdated and Joel has brought our design to a new level. He is such a talented graphic designer! He offered us several design ideas; really thought about how to make our brand stand out and we have loved partnering with him. He is quick to turn around concepts and edits and has been a true professional. We are so glad we selected him to handle our graphic design needs and we look forward to working closely with him on all future projects.

The team at Blue Matrix Media did an outstanding job with not only categorizing our organization’s brand perception and strengths, they were able to showcase and highlight our company’s characteristics via the creation of a corresponding new website design. Blue Matrix Media has made an immediate impact on the number of visitors to our site by optimizing our company’s profile and services via search engine. (Something I was skeptical about). As a result, overall traffic to our new website has more than doubled in a matter of months. Blue Matrix Media listened to my concerns, and exceeded expectations. I highly recommend their team and services to any business looking to improve their organizations growth and profile. Joel B.

Sherry painted an amazing mural to surprised my husband for our 25th wedding anniversary. He loves jimmy buffet and she created a one of a kind margarita style beach mural with palm trees, ocean and a beach on our 36x36 barn front. She also painted our herd cow Dixie the Hereford on our tack room. She is amazing, is super kind, and an paint anything on any surface. Your neighbors and city will be envious once she paints your design.

Alice was the director of our department. She is always enthusiastic and positive, a great leader to work with. She worked with our team to help us find the best solutions for the many day to day challenges. She brought great insight and new ideas that helped keep us motivated under the heavy pressures placed upon our division. Not to mention, with her design background, creativity and knowledge of the Adobe creative suite programs she was able to help with our projects when deadlines approached.

Ciao Bella Social created and engineered a web page for my business and I am amazed by her work. I have received so many compliments on my site www.jjmotiff.com, and now my web page is top of the line comparing it with others in the industry. I found my experiences with her to be fun rather than work. I was immensely pleased with her level of talent, her diligent efforts and her willingness to work on any project. She is a brilliant designer and one of the very few freelancers that everyone enjoyed doing business with on a regular basis. Ciao Bella Social's desire to meet customer expectations make her the ideal designer for your organization!

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 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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
