I'm looking for designers to work for some projects. What websites do you recommend where I can find high quality designers to work with me per project? I found websites like upwork and Elance but apparently the quality of designers over there is not excellent except a very few ones.
You'll find that to be the case on any outsourcing site. Focus on the reviews and comments left on a designer's profile. This will give you an idea of the quality of their work before contacting them.
Further, check out LinkedIn and search for "freelance designer" or "freelance graphic design" and sift through the results.
Good luck! They're out there!
I find that sites like Elance, Upwork, 99designs, etc. don't offer high quality designers.
IMO, the best place to find high quality designers are Dribbble: https://dribbble.com/
You can also consider using a service like Crew: https://crew.co/. They hand-select designers and work with you throughout the process, and I've heard good things.
I have hired multiple times from Fiverr, Freelancer and Guru.
NOTHING CAN GUARANTEE A GOOD RESOURCE ! You have to vett couple resources and find the right person who
- Can understand your thought process
- Can communicate with you easily
- Have done similar work before
- Have some reviews against him..
What I generally do
- I give a small gig to see how much we good is the communication and understanding
- Ask questions to the reviewers (both positive an negative) to share some more insight into the engagement
- Create milestones and check rough cuts frequently in the process of development
- Creative writing and design works is very different. You need a person whom you can connect with..
I think you need to think about the things to look for in a good designer first.
Different marketplaces are for different people. You need to know at which level you are, what are your goals.
Hunting the right designer/company for your UI/UX design project needs, itself is a big task as there are too many to select from. You need the check their proven track records for delivering really high quality services to a wide range of industries and organizations.
