The first step in finding a good web designer is to determine whether you need a new website or an update to an existing site. Next, you should consider the timeline and how much money you're willing to spend on the project. Finally, you should ask yourself if you want a professional designer, a no-code web developer like myself, or someone who specialises in coding.
If you're looking for a web designer who has experience with Webflow, then you'll want to make sure that they've worked with the CMS before and have built a few sites with the platform. It's also helpful if they have experience with other popular CMS platforms such as Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla, and Magento, so that they can communicate effectively with clients in a way that makes sense to those who already have experience with those platforms.
As a Webflow Expert Professional Partner, I've got the experience and training to help clients looking to build premium websites in Webflow that are only limited by our collective imaginations. In fact, Webflow is capable of building incredible things, like some of these beautiful websites that you can draw inspiration from or these inspiring websites.
In addition to creating websites from scratch, designers can often work with clients to build out existing sites. They should also be able to provide advice on how to improve an existing site, like what I offer in a website audit. A website audit takes a comprehensive look at a website across a range of criteria to see how it can be improved, including SEO, website copy, calls to actions, branding, mobile responsiveness, and more.
Responsive design is an approach to creating websites that adapt to any screen size. It allows users to view a site on a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone, or other device without having to resize the browser window.
If a site is being built in Webflow, there are specific breakpoints for each device size that allow the website to display perfectly, no matter which device a user is visiting on.
Whether you're looking for a web design agency or a freelance designer who has experience with responsive design, make sure he or she includes examples of sites that are similar to yours in their web design portfolio.
If they have worked on a business's site that's similar to your own, it's a good sign that they will know about the industry, it's norms and conventions, and how to adhere or diverge from them to help separate your site from your competitors.
