Professional freelance designers can keep costs down because they don't have to pay for overhead the way companies do. Furthermore, freelance designers who work out of their homes have been known to provide higher quality services than professionals in the more expensive design firms.
There are several sites where you can post a project for freelance designers to bid on. You can also see what other clients thought of a candidate's work. For even more feedback about candidates, many freelancers allow you to contact previous clients for references.
*Be as specific as possible when posting a project. This will ensure that you get the most accurate price for your project.
