  • In most circumstances, the best way to find a person who does 'X' is by direct referral. Go to your peers, let them know that you're after a web-designer, and do they know anyone they can recommended? In posting to use.perl, you've done that in a virtual sense, which is excellent.

    The big advantage of referral is that most individuals are unlikely to refer you to someone who they feel is a poor worker. You're also more likely to get someone who's close to you, and share a number of common social and business ties. All of those are good things.

    Local user-groups are an excellent starting point, as are professional organisations such as SAGE.
