    Hi,

    Our company is currently on the lookout for a web designer to join our web development team. However, as I've come to realize, finding a designer that is good and doesn't cost over $50 is a hard task.

    So, my questions are these:

    1. How much should I be prepared to pay a web designer with knowledge of Flash per hour?

    2. Where is the best place to go looking for either freelancers or part-time workers in the web design area. The person I'm looking for doesn't have to have a graphical education as long as they have a good graphical sense.

    Thanks in advance !
    Sincerely,

    Eirik Johansen

    Try looking through sites like http://www.guru.com and http://www.freeagent.com and http://www.elance.com for resumes and profiles of freelance flash designers. I'm sure you'll find one that doesn't charge over $50/hour.

    remember - price is directly related to quality, skill, and experience. You get what you pay for.

    Check out SmarterWork too.

    You should consider paying per job rathern than an hour and then you can just contract the jobs out as and when you need them done!

    Hey Eirik,

    I would be very interested in talking with you if you are still looking for somebody - and we could discuss the rate . I can provide you with lots of links to work that I have done and writing I have done for the 'Friends of ED' series, along with gif.com. Please feel free to contact me directly through email (sryder@webryder.com) or ICQ (60081110) !

    Hi guys,

    Nicky: Well, I've done some chatting with Shawn during the last couple of weeks, and he's absolutely interesting. However, he's a little over the price limit, so I haven't made any decisions yet.

    Aspen & Vinay: I agree as well. I guess what I'm doing is trying to find out what level of quality I get for what price.

    Andysan: By m8e I assume you mean me. If so, I'm based in Norway. Please feel free to contact me at eirik@netmaking.com if you're interested in further information.

    Justin S.: Thanks for the suggestion. I might try it out this upcoming week.

    Thanks to you all !
    Sincerely,

    Eirik Johansen

    hi m8e is like saying matey, sorry if you did not understand.

    your in norway, well am in england si i guess its out of the question, then is it not?

    it could be possible to work over the net on freelance jobs but hardley practical. you;ll find someone soon.

    oh and i charge 30 an hour for flash.

    Generally good flash designers start at $50/hr. If there is heavy actionscripting and animation involved then the rate will easily double.
    Good flash designers are hard to find because of their high demand. I suggest browsing through some of the flash resource sites, that's where they tend to hang out.
    flashkit.com
    virtual-fx.net
    flashplanet.com

    regards,
