Where Can I hire a Designer to Design My WordPress Theme

Oct. 5, 2014

Hey Guys
Could you point me out to right direction here. From where I can find a good designer who can design the mockup for my existing WordPress Blog. Which freelancing/design website would you recommend or any freelancer do you know of?
I have a budget of around $500-1000 and I'm just looking for a designer and not a developer. I don't mind going to a crowd sourcing site which you have used and had good experience with.
Few things I'm expiating the designer to be well-versed with:

Good typography knowledge
Call to action
User Experience
Usability expert
Understand modern design practices

(Anything else you suggest?)

If you could suggest your best resource that would be helpful for me and for the community too.

Harsh, fiverr is the best platform to get connected to freelancer with established track record.

Fiverr is good for small work but I'm looking for an experienced one.

I would recommend odesk, I have personally used:

- freelancer you getting lots of people bidding very quickly but they are cowboys.
- elance is ok but out of all the sites I tried they have the least users.
- peoplehour I have signed you to but yet to try.
- fiverr I recently paid $5 for an amazing logo which I was going to £180 on on 99designs.

Just a side note the services I have mention I have been using for over 2 years.
Your best bet is to find where great designers stay and go to them for example dribbble.com you get to see their work and you just reach out to them. I think this is the best tip I can give.

Good luck :)

I would suggest you wordprax ltd.,one of the increasing Wordpress designers available in here. They specially deal only in Wordpress designing market with having more than 4500+ clients all over globe.
If you are looking for freelancer then I would suggest you elance.
