Where do you go to find Freelance Website Designers?

I've been trawling websites like Dribbble and Forrst. Any other suggestions?

Have you tried MeFi Jobs?

Have you also looked at linkedin? You can put in the search terms (as in do you want a website designer or someone with a specialty)?

(Just did a quick look through there using website designer as a search term) and many people have links to samples, websites, and contact info, too.

If there's a website you really like the look of, see if the designer is credited at the bottom of the front page or elsewhere. It's a fairly reliable way of getting what you like. But MeFi Jobs would be faster.

AIGA Member Directory. Search by web design and city.

I think AIGA is a good choice because the designers choose to adhere to a code of ethics (no stealing other peoples work, ripping off clients, etc) and basically have been successful enough to pay membership dues in the last year. The same can't be said for craigslist or the ilk.

I wouldn't limit yourself to just freelance designers either. Many small design shops will work with whatever budget you have. If not, they likely have a list of freelancers they'd be willing to connect you with.
