Party Favor Photo was exactly what I was looking for in a Photobooth. Communicating with Joe and Josh was a breeze. I would always get an answer within a few minutes. There are a TON of options regarding layout/design of the photo and backdrops. Josh arrived to our venue early to set up and was so pleasant with our guests. I always prefer an open air booth set up versus a closed one because 1) it is not claustrophobic and 2) the more the merrier! Our photos were high quality and delivered to us digitally right after the event. I cannot say enough good things. Highly recommend!

Mark and his group did a great job creating a site that looks great no matter the screen. He was very professional, quick and made sure he understood what I wanted before he started. He was also flexible when I asked him to make some changes based on things we were seeing in the market. It wasn’t in the original design but he made the changes. You have a loyal customer.

I have been working with Customer First, LLC on branding my business for over 3 months now. From the very beginning until now, Jimmy has been very responsive, professional, diligent, and not to mention quite patient with me during the entire creative process: logo design, web design, social media branding, advertising, recruiting, you name it. Jimmy will do it. He truly cares about not just the content he puts out, but also what results are driven from our collaboration. I am so grateful to be working with Jimmy and his team and I am excited to see what we come up with next!

I reached out to Chuck and Goose to design a logo and website for my start up interior design firm. From the very beginning the team was responsive, professional, and provided an end product that was truly amazing/elegant. They took my concept and enhanced it beyond what I could have imagined, all within my budget. I had looked at some other options, but Chuck and Goose has the best value for the best high end results by far and was the most responsive- customer service is an A+. I now have access to the logo for hats, t shirts, and business cards to grow my business!

Excellent work! Black Arrow Digital took care of all my social media needs with perfectly relevant and up to date info so that I wouldn't have to constantly update the various social media networks, which seems to be pretty essential in this day and age. They also did my business's graphic design and advertising placement work, which really helped me get my name out into the community. Thanks Black Arrow!

From day one and all the way through to the end, Grant was very good at communicating...which means a great deal to me. The competitive pricing and the fact that they're local to me were also major pluses. Even though I had to make a few redundant requests to the design time, I was very happy with the final product and will look forward to working with RedSail again.

I hired 2X Momentum to design a new website for me as an independent author and I am beyond pleased with the final product and 2X Momentum's customer service. I interacted specifically with Rosemary and Shannon, both of whom were incredibly professional and responsive. From our first meeting, Rosemary and Shannon listened attentively to my vision for the website, asked relevant questions and provided me with a draft website that was very close to my original concept. They were organized and regularly sent me checklists of items I needed to complete in order to meet the deadline I had given them. Additionally, they offered suggestions and creative solutions in order for me to received the best value and they updated the draft website with any changes or modifications I requested. As an independent author and new business owner, my budget for a web designer was not large but 2X Momentum was able to provide outstanding value within my budget. I will definitely hire them again and I highly recommend their services.

    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.
