Hey guys. So I am design-challenged. I have a website that I want designed; but local outlets would charge at minimum $4,000. I have gone the route of hiring someone who english is not their first language; and I got burned a little bit (didn't bother me too much, it only cost a few hundred dollars). I am willing to invest several thousands dollars, but I want the website to be CREATIVE and to LOOK AWESOME. That is the key here. This is an artistic website. Local guys are not artistic. They create great business websites, but not good arty ones. But how do you find a web designer like this, who speaks english as their first language (so that we don't have unbalanced expectations) ... that doesn't cost $4,000... and someone you can trust because they are working remotely? Freelancer.com and the like just doesn't seem to work out well for me, I pick someone based on their portfolio and the results are disappointing. I figure going to a single person, perhaps a student, who is talented and needs a break would be good. Any ideas on where to find these?
