How to Find a Great Web Designer

When it comes to finding a great web designer, there are so many options that it can be confusing. What makes a great web designer, anyway? The answer to that is, it depends on what you are looking for.

Some Key Points to Consider When You are Shopping Around

  • Are you looking for a design that looks great?
  • Are you looking for a design that captures the most users?
  • Are you just looking for a design that is unobtrusive for your information site?
  • Does your site need to be interactive?
  • Do you want to deal locally, or nationally?
  • How much time do you have to shop around?
  • What is the time frame of your project
  • What is the reputation of the designer/company?

Steps to Finding the Perfect Designer for Your Project

  1. Decide what kind of site you need
  2. Do you need any web programming?
  3. Decide how much time you have to use to find a designer
  4. Ask around for referrals
  5. Ask prospective designers for their portfolio
  6. Ask prospective designers how the go about creating a web site
  7. See how much input you might have on your project
  8. Ask your designer what experience they have in designing sites like yours
  9. Ask about the terms of payment (some designers take payment up front, others require a deposit and payments as you go)
  10. Make sure they have a written guaranty
  11. Ask how many revisions you are entitled to

Local or National?

It might be tempting to use a big, national firm to design your website. You might be promised everything under the sun, and the designer probably can fill your order.

But, consider using a local firm. They are more easily accessible. You can stop in and meet your designer in person, get to know them a little bit. You want to find someone who won’t just crank out a boring website. You want someone who can inject a little bit of personality into your pages. Plus, by shopping locally, you keep your dollars in the local economy, helping make our area strong.
