Hire a Website Designer

If you're on the hunt for a freelancing professional with some website design skills to solve a conundrum, you'd best know exactly what you'll be looking for. Before you post a job opening, we'd recommend you wrap your head around what's involved as the world of web design as it's a rapidly changing beast that's moved well beyond ye olde HTML and Dreamweaver days of yore. And so, without further ado, let's bypass the quagmire of miscommunication and unrealistic expectations by getting you up to speed with how to find a freelancer to create a website nowadays... Getting a handful of hastily linked pages up on a web server isn't the issue here, because there are a bunch of template-based applications that can burp you out a basic website. But here's the rub: an obviously templated website that's stuccoed with a non-removable “Powered By CookieCutterSites.Inc” is, well, just not impressive. If you want to be taken seriously, you need to look serious. A handcrafted website by a talented web designer, who knows how to make everything and work perfectly in any sort of browser on any sort of device, can give you that street credibility.

What is Website Design?

We're not going to lie to you – getting your ideas out on the world wide web can take some doing. Different people will have different needs, too. After all, are we talking a complex site rooted in ecommerce that will be seeing massive international traffic or are you more in the market for a smaller blog that showcases your extensive photo collection of cute animals wearing funny hats? Bottom line: more often than not you'll need a website designer to make everything look not just pretty, but easy to understand and navigate through. Fail to deliver either, and your visitors will leave you for...oh, about a million other sites that are better made.

Hire a Website Designer

The basic duties of a web designer include the improving and testing of your existing site, or knocking one up from scratch. They will establish design guidelines, standards, and best practices to ensure that your corporate identity remains clear and consistent across mediums. Obviously, this includes designing visual imagery for your site and ensuring that these new elements are in line with the expected purpose of the site. They'll also need to find a happy medium between delivering you an online portal that is pleasing to the eye, but also easy to understand and navigate through. It's no use having an absolute Van Gogh of a homepage if nobody can find their way into the info tucked behind the fancy swirls.
