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!

I had no idea on how to get started on my site, Let's just say my knowledge was between dirt and a rock, just turned in my black flip phone which did not even text. Michele not only had to design a site that I liked, I mean really liked, but had to put up with me (training comp. 101). Always stayed "Professional", even when I asked what are you talking about, if it took her a dozen times to explain, Michele always was there with patent answers. My Art Site is a extension of my art work, best way to explain, the very last brush stroke is always the frame. I thought that is, until I wanted to sell on the internet. Now the "VERY LAST BRUSH STORKE" is your web site, and I lucked out, with a professional who cared as much about her creation as I did mine. Who understood that your site is a one on one representation of you and your company. Since 80% of all sales is completely with by a personal connection, your web site takes the place of you. So the company and or person creating it, and bringing it to life, must understand you, your product and the customer. Michele gets 10 on 10 for that, cause she spent the time getting to know me, my product and how I wanted it represented. Thank You ! Michele, for yesterday, the completion, and our continuing future working together as I grow. T. A. Sacco, Silhouette Artist.

My band hired George to do the graphic design for our album artwork. He did a fantastic job with a very quick turnaround. We gave him little direction, just a few specific details, and we couldn't be more happy with the finished product. He had very good instincts for what we were looking for and how to deliver. And he's very friendly, easy to get a hold of and responded quickly to any questions we had. George is an absolute joy to work with.

    Steve took an old treasured baby picture of my daughter that had gotten damp and stuck to the glass on the picture frame it was in.I had no other copies of the photo. He was able to restore it for me beautifully.

    We get tons of great feedback about our website as it is, and Stephen is taking it to a new level by making it more mobile-friendly. Stephen is a great person to have on your team because he is an artist, but stays on top of cutting edge technology. Plus he's a joy to work with because he is about the human side of things, and not just the product.

    I have worked with vDomainHosting on a variety of website designs - Guy is tenacious and works until you are the best you can be - he doesn't give up. More importantly for me, it's not just the one time design but the ongoing service. He sticks with you and brings new ideas and new technology on ways to help your business, get your message out and constantly improve your look and feel.

      I have hired Michael numerous times for different projects and he has become my "go to guy." The work he does is way above what I asked for. He also get the project done when he says he will. I will always use him for future projects.

      I worked with Kaelyn as the project manager for designing an electronic press kit for Tim Matsui's documentary, "The Long Night." Throughout the process, Kaelyn was very responsive to the client's needs and designed a beautiful press kit that perfectly captured the director's film. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.

      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.
