I find that most designers are insisting on using Wordpress and I have a number of concerns. My site needs to be re-designed ASAP. In fact I have 2 sites but I will start with one. I would love to find a creative designer with a Jamaican or tropical aesthetic who is able to create a luxury feel. I am also looking for a designer who will not insist that I hosted on their platform. I am based in Toronto.
When you are prepared to pay the cost of bespoke development, the where to find will become apparent. If the site is interactive in ANY way (contact form/register/sales), then it should also undergo relevant security testing.
