We are starting a new business and hired a website designer. We paid him $3,000 (one-half) to start in May 2009. I provided the exact design of the website that I wanted (a well-known luxury spa) after the designs he presented were nothing like what we wanted.
I provided the text for each website page (about 40 pages total) in August. In late October, the website, was available for my review. The website had a lot of issues. The logo was not centered - and was also in a different spot on some pages than on others. I pointed this out and he argued with me about it at first (then he realized I was right and has fixed that).
The text was not formatted properly - primarily the space between paragraphs was inconsistent. This is basic text, with a few bulleted lists, no fancy formatting. The designer I have tells me it is very, very difficult to get the spacing right. I marked up all the pages to show how the line spacing should be in October and now have reviewed it again in November and it is still not correct. The line spacing is not as I requested and is still not consistent.
I am afraid he is not competent at this point and afraid if I let him finish it will take another 3-6 months and I will have a junk website that I will not be able to update myself. I am interested in bids to take over the project and complete it, as well as help maintain it once it is live.
