Hello, I have a website for my pet grooming business that desperately needs updating. Here's my problem: I spoke with a web designer who is very affordable, and is a phenomenal artist, however I do not want any of her art in my site, or very little if any. I currently barter to have my site done and the girl who does that is willing to do whatever I want for free. Do I go with the pro who has a different vision than I do, but says she won't stop designing til I'm happy with the outcome? She most likely has all the effects I'm looking for (and would have to search all over the internet for) at her fingertips, and I wouldn't have to put very much time in at all, she'd do all the work and I'd just approve/disapprove her final copies. Whereas if I do it with my friend, I have a little more freedom of what I can get, but its more work on my part. Plus updates would be easier with my friend who lives just down the road, vs. the pro who lives several states away and we communicate over phone and email. Also, my friend and I may be limited, I know what I want, but may not even think of some things the pro may come up with for design ideas, plus she knows advertising etc. What to do? TIA. I'd normally ask my pet groomer forum, but that's where I got the pro's name/info so I don't want to ruffle any feathers, and I'm loving this site/forum and trust you guys will give me as much guidance.
Ps. Everyone's horse is gorgeous! I can't wait to add my own...as soon as I get one!!
