Red Flags When Hiring a Web Designer

Anyone ever purchased something on the internet and regretted it?

I know I have. 🙋‍♀️

If you’re looking for design work, here’s a few red flags to keep an eye out for when hiring a designer:

🚩 𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐝𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐚𝐬𝐤 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐛𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬:

Your business, target clients, and goals should guide the creation of any design. Design is based on strategy... if they don’t know these things about your business (at minimum), they won’t be creating work for you that will help your business get to the next level.

🚩 𝐔𝐧𝐢𝐦𝐚𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐲 𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐩:

Everyone starts out at a lower price point, but if it’s so cheap that it seems almost unbelievable... it’s time to run.

🚩 𝐂𝐲𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐚𝐭𝐭𝐢𝐭𝐮𝐝𝐞 𝐨𝐫 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐩𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐝𝐨:

If they’ve lost the passion for their own business, don’t expect them to bring any to yours.

🚩 𝐋𝐚𝐜𝐤 𝐨𝐟 𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐟𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐨:

Self-explanatory, but even beginners usually have some personal projects they can show as an example. Check out my portfolio
