Web Designer

Lutfal and Champa and their team (Remote Programmer) in Kolkata have been working with me since 2003.

Andrew R. Taylor

I personally went to India to visit Lutfal and his team in 2007 to start off our project and they made me feel very welcome. I was impressed by their set-up and professionalism. I would highly recommend Remote Programmer to anyone.

Martin J Smith

We have used Remote Programmer for last 13 years (as on Jan 2020) and have always been impressed by the quality of the service they provide. We have a fairly complex website with more than 500 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.

From insightfulness to exquisiteness, RP proved to be an excellent partner on all aspects. Flexible work schemes, dedicated developers plus an advisory role indirectly.

Mohammed Moulay

We worked with Remote Programmer for several years and they provided great service.

Developers are reliable and supported by a flexible, capable and collaborative management team as needed.

Web Designer

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.

How can you hire a web designer

Hiring Models to Hire a Web Designer

  • Full Dedicated - When you have a dedicated team of 3 developing small design oriented websites, you can consider hiring a dedicated Web Designer
  • Part Dedicated - When you have one or two dedicated developers in your team you should go for part dedicated designer.  
  • Hourly  Based - You can get the designing works done on hourly basis  
  • Virtual Dedicated - If you are developing small concept based web application that you should opt for Virtual Dedicated and get the web designer work on your project as dedicated when he works.
