on May 20, 2014

So, you are all set to get a great as well as professional looking website for your business. And now looking for someone to do your work? There must be some basic checkpoints in your list that should be checked before you hire a web designer for your job. Whether you want the website for yourself or for your customers, these checkpoints are more or less the same.

When searching for a website designer, go through the websites created by the designer. Check out their sample pages posted on the internet and if there is nothing that attracts you then it tells something about the designer. Having a good design sense is very important for a website designer. Awareness of basic design principles as well as other elements of design is required.

Then comes the technical skills required to do the job. The world of technology changes very fast and to keep up with it, a web designer should be attuned with the changes in the industry.HTML is essential for all web designers as well as web developers so as to know the basis of web pages.CSS is another important language as it powers the design. So, one should have a good grasp of the latest version of HTML, CSS, JavaScript UI techniques and some basic search engine opt  imisation techniques. Along with these, soft skills are important too. As a designer, one communicates with customers, art director, developers and so on. Effective communication skill helps in every profession though.

Also, web designers should have a good business sense. A good web designer not only designs a website for their customers but also creates business solutions for them. They should know their target consumer base and design accordingly. The design of a website should go with the business requirement of it.

Now, consider the charging fees or the salary, as the case may be. Some are very pricey and some are affordable, you will find them all. You have to look at the whole package when you are on this journey of finding a web designer for yourself. Good luck with your search.
