John has been my videographer and website developer for many years. Filming has been his life work and his expertise and professionalism in helping me with my marketing projects has been invaluable. He is a wonderful teacher and has trained several of my employees which went way beyond the scope of his contract.. I have been very grateful for his ongoing commitment to me and my company as well as the results.

Ross worked with me when we set up the website for our non-profit, The Gathering Place...A Center For Wellness. He rendered my BW logo into color and then created the banner for the website. Our newsletter, Planet ONE Network, also uses his banner creation. The work was well-done, professional, and he discussed everything with me to make sure we were 'on the same page'. Very professional in his business.

Dave was a lifesaver for our website. Our original website was developed by someone else and Dave stepped in to 'fix' it. There were many things going wrong with it and he fixed everything. He listened to us and corrected the site to work the way we wanted. He responds quickly to our inquiries, is knowledgable, make things easy for us to understand, and has great ideas for ways to help us.

I needed a new design for my band and I got a great piece! Excellent work for a reasonable price and when I needed a slight adjustment to it months later, I got it done free and prompt.

Vincent was on time, personable, and great with my party guests (who were all young girls). He did such a great job capturing each personality and everyone left so happy with their personalized pieces of art done by a great artist! I would highly recommend Vincent!

Jeff is very willing to tweak changes and iron out the smallest details for his clients. My existing website is 15 years old and Jeff was able to update copy and offer new ideas to make it more visually appealing. I have fairly strong opinions on how I want the site to look and Jeff was totally fine with that.

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.

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.

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.
