Web design resources

Hi all,
I am looking to expand my service offerings, and one skill I am not yet proficient with is design.

Although I do use web designers that I know on ad-hoc basis depending on customer requests, the majority of my customer base falls into the SME market with typically low budgets and cannot afford to pay high prices (£500+) for design as well as all the other costs for building their websites.

So looking for a solution to this, I have just come across a subscription based design resource and was wondering if any of you here have either used this site or something similar that you can recommend?

Appreciate your time,

No opinions from experienced designers here or otherwise?

Why not just offer a CMS that has free skins? Maybe I’m not understanding the question, can you rephrase it?

I was a member for a year (I think it was $59 for a year, unlimited downloads). But I do seem to remember there is a limit on how many customer sites you can use their designs on. I think it was 30.

Templates are of pretty good quality, I did have trouble with a couple of them.

I usually point people on low budgets to wordpress.com. You get a free site and free hosting, and they look pretty good. For a fee, they can use their own domain name. Pretty good value, really.
