Web Design Company Hiring Guide

What is a web design company?

A web design company is a specialized business that creates and designs visually appealing and user-friendly websites tailored to meet clients' specific needs and goals. It has a team of creatives and designers who are responsible for a website's aesthetics and appearance, such as the color palette, images, layout, and more. 

What does a web design agency do?

A web design company creates the overall layout and designs of a website, using a variety of programs and tools to design websites that align with the client's branding and business objectives. It has expertise in UI/UX design, ensuring that the website is intuitive and easy for visitors to navigate. 

Web design companies typically also offer additional services such as: 

These additional services can provide a holistic approach to your digital presence and ensure consistency across all digital touchpoints.

How much is the average price of hiring a web design agency?

The average price of hiring a web design agency is between $50 to $500 per hour. Projects can range from $10,000 to $500,000, depending on the:  

  • Scope and complexity of the project 
  • Number of uniquely designed landing pages 
  • Desired features and functionalities 
  • Number of integrations such as Salesforce, HubSpot, Mailchimp, or other similar third-party sources 

Because web design agencies charge hourly, it’s essential to understand the following factors that can also affect the total cost: 

  • Web design process 
  • Number of hours allocated to your project 
  • Team members appointed to your project 

Get customized quotes from agencies to determine the exact cost for your specific requirements. 

How long do web design agencies take to design a website?

Web design agencies typically take two to four weeks to design standard websites with basic features. More complex sites with custom functionalities may take several months. 

Key factors to consider are the website's size and architecture, its complexity, and the exact functionality specifications needed. 

It's best to discuss the exact timelines and scope of work with the web design agency during the introductory meeting. 

What is the difference between a web design and a web development agency?

The difference between a web design and a web development agency lies in their service focus and the roles they fulfill. 

A web design agency focuses on the visual aspect of user experience, such as color schemes, graphic design, and layout, which guides the user through the conversion funnel. It creates a design strategy that improves the customer journey. 

While there is some overlap in the services that web design and web development agencies offer, web design companies are more likely to specialize in: 

  • Website strategy 
  • Website design 
  • Site planning 
  • Site architecture 
  • Wireframing 
  • UI/UX design 
  • Branding 
  • SEO 
  • Content creation 
  • Digital marketing  

On the other hand, web development agencies are focused on a website’s functionality and maintenance, as laid out in the second question. Many of them also branch out to diversify their service offerings and have areas of expertise like: 

How do I determine if I need a web design agency or a freelance web designer?

To determine if you need a web design agency or a freelance web designer, consider the following: 

  • Project scope: This briefly describes your business, product, or service, the problems to be addressed, and the target audience. 
  • Goals: These cover the achievements you intend to attain, such as the number of monthly visitors, target increase in sales, increase in signups, leads, inquiries, and more. 
  • Business requirements: These include the content and site structure, wireframes and mock-ups, design elements, functionality, features, and other technical specifications.  
  • Budget: This states your designated budget based on your requirements and expectations. 

Web design agencies are often suitable for larger projects that need a full team of professionals. They offer industry expertise, experience, scalability, and other complementary services to help you build your online business. They also have the tools to resolve issues more efficiently. 

Meanwhile, freelance web designers are cost-effective options that offer flexibility.  

Ultimately, if you need an expert team to handle your project from start to finish and provide industry insights and recommendations, it's best to hire a web design agency. 

Why should you hire a website design company?

You should hire a website design company because it can produce a professional and user-friendly site that gives you a return on your investment. 

Following SEO and user engagement best practices, expert website design companies ensure that your design can attract and engage visitors as well as facilitate higher organic traffic, better time on site, and lower bounce rates. These will help increase the effectiveness of your digital marketing campaigns. 

Other reasons to enlist the services of a web design company are the following: 

  • Greater brand awareness 
  • Increased conversions 
  • Better engagement 
  • Enhanced customer loyalty 

Validating these reasons is a case study published by web design company Lounge Lizard on their work for luxury fragrance line, MIND GAMES. 

The agency designed an entirely unique and customized website that conveys the brand’s story, inspiring users to take action. The results of the collaboration include a consistent 13% increase in week-over-week web traffic and a 63% average engagement rate. 

How to choose the right website design agency?

Consider these factors when selecting the ideal website design agency for your project: 

  1. Needs, goals, and budget: Set your business requirements and a budget based on the level of customization you want for your website. 
  2. Google search: Browse through reputable online directories. You can search for the best web design agency rankings, through which you can find prominent names or established boutique-style local design companies. 
  3. Agency websites: Check their websites for core services, areas of industry expertise, years in the business, and extensive experience. Read their blogs to gauge if they can provide value-adding optimized content. 
  4. Accolades and affiliations: Expert web design companies should excel at what they do. See if they have won web awards for excellence and in which categories. You should also find out if they have updated certifications and membership with professional design associations. These will speak volumes about their reputation. 
  5. Portfolios, case studies, and online reviews: Go through their portfolios and case studies. Note how they approach each design project and the results. See the actual work by navigating through their clients' websites. Test how intuitive and user-friendly the designs are. Also, evaluate client ratings and recommendations. 
  6. Shortlisting: Based on your initial findings from the steps above, create a shortlist of up to five agencies that align with the style you have in mind. Contact the shortlisted companies and express your interest in working with them. 
  7. Request for proposal (RFP): Send a web design RFP to the shortlisted agencies. Include the business outcomes you intend to achieve, plus the KPIs and the statistics you want to receive after launch. Enumerate competitor sites and the websites that perform well or communicate their branding effectively. Providing this information to prospective partners is crucial so they know the strategy to take for developing your strong online presence through design. 
  8. Cost estimates and timeframe: Ask them to outline their process and determine the resources needed to complete the project successfully. Based on these, request for a cost breakdown and an estimate for the project timeline. 
  9. Interviews: Invite them for interviews where you can get to know their teams, ask questions, and discuss the custom proposals. 
  10. Evaluation and selection: Assess and compare the companies and make a decision. 

Also, make sure to provide each agency with information about your business, audience, goals, desired site features, design preferences, budget, and other requirements. It also helps to share websites that you like or want to model your site after. The more detailed your project brief, the more likely you’ll find a candidate that fits your needs.
