And don’t forget to look at some free and premium WordPress theme archives. You can get securely coded good looking web designs for a sensible price, or even free. There are so many themes or designs out there that you’re almost sure to find one that suits you.
Smashing magazine 100 themes
Theme forest WordPress themes
Template Monster themes
StudioPress (my favourite WordPress quality themes)
Find a theme that is close to what you want and then pay someone to tweak it if you really must. But first ask yourself, do you really need a bespoke web design?
Many big names are now using off the peg websites. Not bespoke designs. Here are some reasons why.
- Quality. A web designer can make a whole career of just one web design or framework. Websites take time to make and keeping that code secure is important. If you buy a bespoke design you may need to check that there are no vulnerabilities discovered after you’ve been using the site and code for a period of time.
- Updates and security. If you bought the site as a one off deal with a web designer you may be faced with a new bill just to update the code and keep it secure at some point in the future.
A good way to avoid this is to use a framework like Genesis or Thesis as a foundation for your website.
The framework such as Genesis or Thesis provides almost all of the code to build your website. You then add a child theme that changes the colours and small design details. Using a framework to build your website is like having a mobile phone with different plastic covers that change the look and colour of the phone.
Because the framework does all of the heavy lifting of making your site function and the child theme is only used to change colours and minor layout options, keeping your site secure is much cheaper and easier. And you can usually change the look of your site with out loosing any of its functionality too, if you keep the same framework and just change the child theme.
If you use WordPress to build your site I highly recommend that you use a framework such as Genesis. It will save you time money and hassle.
