    Hi
    For web design clients, is it better if you tell them you have a team of people that you work with, or is it better if you tell them you do everything yourself?

    It's just best not to be deceptive or deliberately misleading.

    Don't claim to have an army of 50 workers if it is just you.

    At the same time, you don't have to volunteer the info that you're working on your own unless it's asked.

    When dealing with clients you generally just want to be upfront and honest wherever possible.

    Best not to deceive but you can say that on larger projects you work with a team of freelancers with you managing the project.

    If appropriate you could add staff that you work with regularly onto your website.

    Be honest with your clients. No need to lie to them saying you are working in a team if you are not.

    Most important things is your portfolios and quality if you are doing web design.
