Tristan did a wonderful job and transformed a vacant condo into what felt more like a home! I really appreciate the quality of the items, the attention to detail in the design, and the value it adds to the property. I would definitely use her again for future clients!

James at Manna sites helped me create a fantastic website for my wife's business. As a non website person, he provided the platform for success. My wife had very specific visual design desires and Mannasites covered all the bases. They where there when I need help with quick and clear answers. Mannasites has provided our web hosting, domain name and site support for the past year and we have no reason to ever leave.

Heather is an amazing person to work with! We started off with one project together and now she is our main exterior designer for all our upcoming projects. She is creative, full of brilliant ideas, positive, time efficient, a great listener and of course professional. We are very happy to be working with her and excited about all the designs she has to offer. She knows what we are looking for and she constantly exceeds our expectations with what she has to offer. We definitely recommend Heather!!

We had fine design help us with a small kitchen remodel and flooring throughout a couple rooms in our home. We were very happy with the outcome! Taylor and his guys are very professional and quick to respond. Taylor is super handy with everything and we are consistently using him for other home improvements (i.e wood mantel installation) and will use him in the near future for our master bathroom remodel and quartz installation. Great price range and good quality. Only improvements for Taylor and his team would be cleaning up daily after work and completing on time, our project was finished a few days late. We highly recommend!

Rosie installed wallpaper for us and did an excellent job. We ran 25" short but she got creative using leftover pieces and lined up the pattern just perfectly! I appreciated her creative problem solving and attention to detail, saving us time and money from potentially ordering another whole roll for such a small area. She was easy to coordinate with, showed up right on time, and the wall looks great!

We worked with Nancy on a fireplace design to add to our current living room. Nancy made this so easy! Beyond being a great listener to the design details that fit us she did all the leg work in finding colors, stone, styles that we might like to choose from, and then delivering to us the samples for choosing from. We ended up with a beautifully designed fireplace that fits the design of our house and our own personal style at an amazingly affordable price. Thank you Nancy!

I am really blown away by the prompt and professional service I've received with 365. Linh is very responsive and has tackled a big project for me quickly and perfectly. Taking this off of my plate has freed me up to complete a rebrand that must be in place by the first of the year. I wish I had hired Linh years ago. I've made so. Any missteps with my web design and SEO etc. It's such a relief to be able to hand this off to someone so proficient. A million thanks!

Nicole did a great job working with us to design and craft a beautiful "guest book" for our wedding! It was gorgeous and such a fun addition to our magical day. I only rated 4 stars rather than 5 because it took several weeks longer than originally agreed upon to get the final product. But we still got it in time to print it out and mount it for our big day!

I recently bought a new condo in Seattle and wanted a modern look but had no idea where to begin until I met Lisa. She was very knowledgeable, professional, and easy to work with and right from the get go she was enthusiastic and hard working always going the extra mile to get things done. She was very perceptive in her design instincts regarding the clean modern look I was looking for and went beyond my expectations in her ability to manifest the style I was trying to conceptualize. I especially liked the fact that she had no hesitation in looking for items outside the store she was working at at that time to achieve the perfect look. If you are looking for an interior designer I highly recommend that you contact her.

Alison was an amazing partner in designing our living room and dining room interiors. She truly listened to our visions and hopes and was able to "articulate" them with a comprehensive design proposal. I loved the color palette and the detail in all the pieces she picked. She also worked really well with our price point and was able to find amazing items. I really valued her professionalism and quick turnaround, especially given how much work clearly went into the design proposal. She also iterated really quickly with us and was responsive and helpful as our ideas shaped. I couldn't have asked for a better partner!

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 do interior designers do?

Interior designers do much more than pick complementary paint colors and choose matching furniture — although those tasks are important parts of the job. Unlike decorators, interior designers usually have an associate of science degree or certificate of achievement in interior design from an accredited program. They’re trained in drafting, lighting and computer aided design (CAD), and are experts in room-specific design and residential space planning. Interior designers use these skills to plan and design safe, highly functional and beautiful interior spaces, from kitchens and bathrooms to family rooms and bedrooms. They determine space requirements, work within building codes and inspection regulations, and meet accessibility standards. An interior designer’s day-to-day job includes creative and technical tasks, both of which often require great communication skills:

  • Creating model rooms and visuals using design software.
  • Researching different textiles, materials, finishes, lighting and furniture.
  • Hiring suppliers, vendors, and contractors.
  • Estimating costs and making bids on potential jobs.

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.
