I have a friend I'm helping set up a site, and he wants a designer/team that is located in North America with a good track record. Mostly all I use is Freelancer when I need something done. I just need to make sure this thing doesn't fall apart six months down the road because it's terrible. I found a great rated coder in UK, and I followed up one of his 5 star ratings, and the guy said a month later they had so many problems with the site, they had to hire another programmer. I want to avoid that. My friend is willing to spend money, so I don't want to cut any corners. Any recommendations on companies or where to look? He wants to create a clone of another site, social media type site.
