Do you guys have any recommendations on how to find a few companies with talented web UI/UX designers? I am looking to get some bids on a fairly large web project ($50k-$75k), but all of the companies I have been in contact with so far seem to be lacking in the design department. Most seem to create mainly generic, template style sites, or sites that look like they could have been created 10 years ago. I'm looking for a place with some style, that employs creative designers that are fairly up to date on current web design trends.
Any ideas or places you have used and would recommend?
