Website design can break or make a startup. It is the design that is most responsible for conversion. But finding one super professional designer who can deliver as per your expectations is really tough.
All technical and non-designer founders can relate to this. Finding a perfect match to design the website all on a fixed budget and with transparency is really tough.
The most popular place to find design inspiration and the creators of that design is Dribbble. But finding the designer on the platform is near to impossible. Because most of them are either big studios or newbies. Big studios charge big bucks and newbies don’t offer transparency and most of the time don’t deliver what you are expecting.
Freelancers are great but finding one that is great is really a tough task. There are thousands of them listed on various freelance marketplaces.
If you are like me who is always looking for a clear flow, fixed budget, and on-time delivery then all the above-listed options may not make you comfortable. The answer to your question is Productized services.
