4 Things to Consider When Looking For The Right Web Designer

August 26, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

If you’re looking to design or remodel your site, it won’t be difficult to find a slew of designers to help you finish your site.

But they’re not going to have the same skills and talents – that’s for sure.

Of course, this also depends on your budget and the particular expertise that you are looking for.

Here are 4 things to consider when looking for the right designer:

1: Check design communities

Designers are members at online communities that you can easily find. Since some of them run contests, you can find designs of winners down to individual components. Also, you can find contact information if you so wish.

2: Check your own network

Your business and professional contacts can also help you find designers especially if they’ve hired an excellent one in the past. Get recommendations from people you trust. If this doesn’t work, then look for designers at LinkedIn member groups by asking for referrals.

3: Look for designers at niche job boards

Job boards like Behance, 99Designs and Dribbble will help you find a number of designers. You will also find their resumes and portfolios at your disposal. Some of them will direct to their site to authenticate their design. In this way, you can compare people’s work side-by-side.

4: Narrow the list and check for references

Once you have made a list of candidates then narrow it down to three and then check for references. Make sure that the designer responds when necessary, excellent with deadlines and will complete the project, no matter what.
