Working with Joe was an absolute pleasure! He was able to create a fantastic logo and other illustrations with a limited amount of information from our team. As we're new to working with creatives, he couldn't have made it an easier experience.

I have used Seth Campbell in the past and his technical and creative skills as a photographer are top notch. Recently, I was put in a bind as a scheduled photography couldn't provide photography for a shoot that involved two models and numerous game chairs. I reached out to Seth and not only did he rearrange his schedule to fill my photography needs, but he came to my office showroom with all the lighting, cameras, computer and seamless required for the shoot. I was further impressed with the quality and creativeness of the photos he took of the products and the models as they interacted with the game chairs. Needless to say, I will use Seth Campbell for all future photo needs. The shots turned beyond fantastic. I would highly recommend Seth. Cheers! JC

We engaged Lori Paulson for the design and marketing of several projects including the rebranding of a medical practice to reflect an expansion of services and providers, and the promotion of a youth-oriented, educational non-profit organization. To say that Lori consistently exceeded our expectations is an understatement. Her creativity, insightfulness, eye for detail, and ability to not only work with our content but take our ideas and express them visually is extraordinary. Aside from taking the time to truly understand our needs, Lori worked tirelessly to make sure every component of the design product was delivered on time and perfect. The original logos, website visuals, copywriting, and comprehensive print materials including signs, letterhead, business cards, brochures, and intake forms she produced were amazing, valuable, and highly effective. Lori is a truly gifted consultant and a tremendous pleasure to work with. Her warmth, professionalism, and passion for what she does made the whole process effortless. We cannot recommend her enough!

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.

    Brent prepared a postcard for me. He did a fantastic job at a reasonable price. He had a very short timetable and met every deadline. He was great to work with and was available whenever I needed to discuss the project. I would highly recommend him for other jobs.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
