  • Well first off, what are you defining as a 'web designer'? this can range from a pure graphic designer to a template editing web monkey. Do you want to have freelance designer or someone on a contract/permenant basis? Is it even paid employment?

    It's not an easy thing to hire anyone, but if you work out what exact role they need to fill, then you can look more easily at likely candidates.

  • 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 bu
