This company was amazing to work with. They had everything well organized from submitting a bid, use of electronic signatures, sending a proof of the design concept for me to approve in advance and excellent and friendly on sight service. In the end I also got a link to all of the pictures that our guests took that day which was so much fun to see. I would use them over and over again!

Barbie is a seasoned graphic designer. She has both technical knowledge of the industry and a gift for design. If you can imagine it, she will create it. If you tell her what your needs are, she will imagine it for you. It is rare to find a "professional artist". She is a dreamer when it comes to your design, but a business pro when it comes to time and delivery.

Reggie was fantastic to work with for this project, which he committed to on a very tight timeline. His quick communication, professionalism, and flexibility - both in terms of his own creative design and our logistical needs - were exactly what we were looking for. I highly recommend Reggie for any of your graphic design needs - especially if local in the DC area! (He found a local printer and delivered the final materials himself). Thanks again, Reggie!

I hired Calvin to design our business logo. I must say, I was a little leary of using Thumbtack as I've never used it before. Calvin was very prompt in his responses, patient and helpful throughout the whole process. We went thorough three rounds of editing and while I was indecisive- he remained responsive and professional. I will definitely hire him again!

Roye Productions completely amazed me with the wonderful job done on my logo and website design. Roye took my vision and brought it to life. His creativity is amazing. He was patient throughout the process, he kept me in the loop the entire time and the finished product blew my mind and it's obvious Roye built my site to amaze. Thank you Roye for a job above and beyond my expectations.

Words can't describe how incredibly thankful we are for finding Rob. His design work is top-notch, and most importantly he delivered well-ahead of our intended deadline. We were in a bind, as another graphic designer simply could not deliver what we were asking. Rob took our requests and delivered a design we loved on the first try. He created a 36x80 banner for us that we will utilize at recruiting events, and we're also going to be using him to create other banners in the next couple of months. If you're looking for someone reliable, incredibly talented, with top-of-the-line work, Rob is your guy. Thanks for everything, Rob.

Ronna has been working with us for almost 6 months. She designed a brochure for a new program that we are launching in an incredibly short amount of time! Her work showed that she had listened closely to our goals and incorporated our personalities and styles into the brochure. Most recently she met with a group of board members with very different ideas and concepts to design a new logo for Georgetown Village. From the preliminary designs she sent in a quarter of the time we expected, Ronna has nailed it! Ronna is very easy to work with, she makes herself readily accessible and clearly understands how to incorporate diverse ideas into a solid design!! Ronna also is very open to suggestions and ideas, and willing to tweak and edit designs multiple times. I couldn't be happier, and I highly recommend Ronna, if you want a job extremely well done

Piers is an excellent photographer-he captures the angles and light just right. His graphic design work is exceptional as well and he comes up with just the right design for your business. He can capture the personality that you are looking to portray. I have worked with him for over 10 years and I would recommend him highly.

    Candice is a brilliant designer. We hired her to design our book covers and then fix the layout of the pages. Though we were indecisive because of all the great options, she helped us to tweak them and used our feedback to create layouts that far exceeded our expectations. We are now in the process of developing a website. Candice is highly skilled and patient web developer too!

    Jared Gold helped modernize our website and did an outstanding job helping us choose information that would enhance our business. He is so knowledgeable, but explains the technical aspects on a level that we can understand and we took off from there also with his guidance the whole way ( and continued support).

    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 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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
