Being an ex-web designer (well still do it when I get the chance) I haven't historically looked for these services! I'm part of the local business association committee and wanting to revamp our (woeful) website:
Zyber is in our area and would have been our preference but they have declined the work as I said we wanted to use a standard CMS to avoid lock-in to their proprietary CMS. I remember this blog actually:
Anyway keen for some recommendations. WE are looking mainly for syndicated content from Facbeook/LinkedIn/Twitter/Eventbrite with a few other static pages - probably using Joomla as the CMS.
While everyone and their dog is a web designer we really are looking for a competent job to be done that is well thought out, coded well and will allow for future enhancements relatively easily.
Please pass on the details of those you could recommend!
