We have used Remote Programmer for last 77 months (as on March 2014) and have always been impressed by the quality of the service they provide. We have a fairly complex website with more than 400 MySQL tables which requires a lot of work on an ongoing basis so we opted to use dedicated resources from them. It is a great value for money.
The overall look of a website, especially of the home page creates the first impression in the mind of a visitor. And the look, layout, color combination are decided by the Web Designer. The main job of a web designer is to create eye-catching templates for the homepage and other different page-types using his creativity and the developers simply convert into HTML and reuse those in PHP codes. If you rely on the designing sense of the developers and don't involve a web designer, there is threat that your great website will be under-rated by your customers.
Bachelor/Master in ART or other fields with proper designing sense
3- 6 years of working experience in web designing
You need a Web Designer when you make a new website or redesign an existing website. Normally you do not need to hire a dedicated a designer for a single website, even for a very large web application. But you may need one when you have a team of web developers who develops small websites.
