When I first sat down with Eduardo expecting to quickly relay my ideas for a logo, I hadn't expected to share my career plans with him. Colors, concepts, and visual graphics became incidental as we shared life experiences, discussed career paths, and labored through several iterations of the logo--I was a picky client, frequently asking how the graphic would turn out if we tweaked the colors or lines a certain way. Eduardo would willingly oblige with his characteristic response, "there's only one way to find out!" I haven't worked with many graphic designers but I'm certain that there aren't many like Eduardo Norell who truly makes the effort and time to understand what the customer wants and is also competent, genuine, and inspirational. I will gladly work with Norell Designs again.

My house is nearly finished, but there was something missing with the décor and I was having a hard time figuring it out. I just needed someone with design knowledge to run some ideas by who could give me some feedback and advice on a potential wall color change, new area rug, etc. Sarah was very fun and easy to work with and helped me make some decisions that I am very excited about and am confident will finish off my space the way I hoped. Other designers responding to my post had a lofty minimum fee, but Sarah was willing to come for just an hour and her rate was very reasonable.

I met with Laura regarding a project that ended up requiring an architect vs a designer so I didn't get to work with her. I will say, however, that she is VERY nice, easy going and down to earth. Her fees are reasonable and she is willing to go the extra mile. Her strengths seem to be accessorizing and choosing colors. Lovely website and love the company name!

Excellent, across the board. Very pleased with the service and final product. Couldn't be happier. I hired Markon Brands to fix and finalize my company website. Originally I had hired another web designer to do this, but met only with foot dragging, mediocre product, and in the end a request for more money to finish it. Out of frustration, I turned to Thumbtack and found these folks. They were very friendly, helpful. And quick. They greatly improved my website, added extras and helpful suggestions, and were a pleasure to work with. To top it off, I also view their services as an excellent value for the dollars spent. No joke, if you're looking for professional web design and marketing, look no further than this group. They can do the job quickly and are easy to work with, and their final product will exceed your expectations. Doubly so if you're a smaller company with a limited budget. Top value and great experience. Can't recommend high enough. 5 stars fully earned. Thank you Kristine and Mike!

John Rank helped with remodeling our basement. It was a major job that included changing a large crawl space into a living room. It took about 12 weeks to complete. John is great to work with. He is very organized and keeps everything running smoothly. He is very good at keeping engineers. individual contractors and inspectors coming/going on schedule. He kept us informed of any issues that came up. The quality of work is great - we are so happy with the finished area, especially the built in cabinetry that John did himself. The only thing that could have been better is to have more time to order specific finishes and to be more involved in the design of the entertainment center.

First and foremost she is wonderful! I found Ashley through her Etsy page where I bought one of her fabulous pieces. I'm one of those people that knows what they like but can't quite figure out how to put it all together. I saw on her page that she also does interior design and because of what she offers in her store I thought she would be really helpful in helping me discover my style. And she did! She worked within the furniture/decorative pieces I already had and also helped me find new features for my room. It all came together great and is exactly what I wanted. She was very collaborative in that she worked with me on what I liked/didn't like, taking inspiration from what I already owned and finding new, unique pieces that she thought would work well in the space. I couldn't be happier! And I'll definitely be recruiting her again soon and keeping an eye on her Etsy page for new finds!

Geoff designed and installed a custom metal handrail in my basement stair. He was very professional and kept constant communication with us as the project progressed. We will be hiring G. Gold Designs in the future for future contracting projects.

This is a LONG overdue review for the wonderful services provided by Jay over at Hospitality Defenders. I came across Hospitality Defenders by chance a few months ago and was sharing with Jay how frustrated I was that I had a business but not a working website and how difficult it was for me to find a web designer that was good and within reasonable budget. Jay offered to meet with me and gave me a free consultation. Immediately after our first meeting, Jay sent me a proposal along with different layout choices, different themes, website content info that he'd need to put together my website.I was a bit overwhelmed but SUPER EXCITED that I found a vendor that knew exactly what I wanted AND knew how to get it for me. I quickly sent Jay all the info that I wanted for my website and he sent me a preview of the website within 2 days! He requested some pictures for my website but I was so busy and lagged on this part. But as soon as I sent it to him, it was uploaded onto the website. When Jay sent me the finished website to look at, I had little changes here and there that I wanted at the last minute and he was SO PATIENT with me and was SUPER RESPONSIVE. The final product far exceeded my expectations - I LOVE MY WEBSITE! Thanks so much, Jay! You're awesome!

I have had the pleasure of working with Karl for the past ten years. He is patient and adept at developing ideas from thin air regarding web designs or product development. He has created original art for everything from books covers to product labels. He is willing to go the extra mile to bring a product in on time and on budget. Couldn't imagine working with anyone else. Highly recommended.

They rate 5 stars in every area I can think of. Creativity, yes! Responsiveness, yes, yes yes! Professionalism, yes! The Idea Garage has built a robust website for the Newmarket Business Association based upon clearly defined needs analysis. They listened to what we wanted, they met our budget and they continue to support like you've never seen! All the while they have been a pleasure to deal with. It is clear they understand how to build websites that are not only attractive, but function well for a given target market. I can't say enough about our great experience with them! Highly recommend you reach out to them.

Wanted to get my studio designed without breaking that bank. Misty helped narrow down the requirement and the budget. She was helpful in picking up the furniture and design layout. The only concern is the time taken in getting all the pieces of furniture. I was hoping that it could be done in one shot but since there were a few custom pieces, delay was unavoidable. Highly recommend Misty.

Strikeforce Design is the best! I had them design a remodel of my kitchen and I couldn't be happier with the result. My kitchen was falling apart, tiny, awkwardly laid out, and practically non-functional. Strikeforce Design took a very difficult canvas and transformed it into a spacious, elegant, cooking space. Not only were their designs unique, they overcame the challenges of the space. Their 3d rendering was top-notch and really helped me visualize the project before pulling the trigger. I will definitely be using them again for future remodel projects.

I got exactly what I asked for. What I thought was a broken chair turned out to only needing a new seat cushion. The chair I got back will last me for many years to come Jennifer and her employee Juan were very easy to work with and very pleasant to talk to. I would recommend her to everyone.

      About

      In my last employment, I was an accomplished college professor of graphic and web design courses with excellent visual design skills. I have a strong familiarity with MAC operating system and proficiency with InDesign, Illustrator, Flash, Dreamweaver/HTML-CSS, and Photoshop. Yes, I do have familiarity with the other side of the world's Windows operating systems including Word, and PowerPoint presentations, just a preferred history with Flash and pdf slide presentations. I have participated in various college wide committees, where I provided my skills, in typography, layout, and general design to meet creative and academic needs, such as producing college brochures, flyers, and work on college catalog. In the 80s, I co-founded a company's Laughing Stock, designing original graphic images for screen-printed t-shirts, sweatshirts, and graph accessories for our imprinted sportswear company. We created a national marketing network for our wholesale products, creating all our advertising, produced brochures, and designed fixture displays for our trade show participation.

      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

      How much does it cost to create a logo?

      Logo design is an important part of your company’s brand development. More than an image with text and color, a logo communicates the tone and personality of your company to your potential customers. Hiring a graphic designer with an appealing portfolio and quality reviews is a solid start to creating a winning logo design. The cost to create a logo can depend on how in-depth the marketing and design services you request are. Designers can create one logo in multiple formats (horizontal, vertical, etc.) to fit both your website and social media platforms, they can create a variety of designs for clients to select from, or they can create multiple logos for one client who needs branding for more than one venture. Logos may be text-only, text and image, or image-only. Many designers and design firms charge by the hour for their services, while other companies offer packages bundled with design services. Here are some examples of cost:

      • National average cost to hire a logo designer: $170-$250.
      • Average hourly rate for a freelance marketing consultant: about $150.  
      • Tiered pricing for logo design packages from one firm:
        • Package One: $200 for three logo concepts, three rounds of revision, and a variety of format and color end designs.
        • Package Two: $350 for 10 logo concepts, unlimited rounds of revision, and a variety of format and color end designs.
        • Package Three: $550 for everything included in the Package Two, plus business card design, letterhead design, social media graphics and an email signature.
        • Package Four: $850 for everything in the Package Three, plus custom brand guidelines, which outline a strategy for creating a consistent branding in the client’s business.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
