I'm looking to try outsourcing some HTML/CSS coding - However.....

By Andrew Pollack on 03/07/2009 at 07:52 PM EST

For outsourcing html/css, I don't dare do a web search on it and just pick -- and I sure as hell don't want to pick from the ones that spam me. Who are you using?

I get pages in Illustrator that were put together from a "designer" (who just can't seem to understand that this is NOT a good design tool for the web). This happens at least once a month. I need to turn them into html/css. Once that's done, I rip sections of code out and replace it with dynamic content using Notes fields.

I'm considering running a bit of a bid contest -- send the same layout to two or three off shore code houses and see which gives me back the best result for the cost. Is anyone already using a resource for this that they like? This should be fairly cheap, commodity level work.

I use a local guy who was recently laid off. He's very talented and
affordable. While he's looking for a new job he is able to supplement his
unemployment income by doing some work for me. It's a win win situation.
We're in Worcester. Let me know if you'd like his contact info. His work is
featured at http://www.frightcatalog.com and http://www.yumdrop.com. Try not
to judge by content of the site but on the design merits. ;)

I've used Jake from www.codestore.net a few times now. He knows Domino, is
reliable and refreshing to work with (none of this complicated bull-shit :o).
He comes highly recommended!

I used guru.com to find a router programmer -- the spec/bid/approve/escrow
system worked great, and if you find someone in the US, they apparently handle
the 1099s for you.

Might be worth a look if you're going beyond friends-of-friends.

I have used:

Fast, cheap and very good. You do not have to start with a psd, they work with
all kinds of graphics.
