Impossible to find unicorn.

Such person doesn’t exist, but some claim they are so.

But HOLD ON! There’s a way I only know about and I’m about to share it with you, to find these unicorns!

These persons usually use headlines like:

“We obsess over pixel perfect design.” “A designer with a focus on pixel perfect design.” “Your go-to guy designer.” “We boost your business.” “A web-design agency with a focus on latest technologies.” “Beautiful Code & Design, made to work.” “Robust code that you surely know what it is because you understand code and you can definitely tell if it is so.” “Quality over Quantity Yolo”.

Which are extremely professional and trustworthy, definitely unique and catchy and COMPLETELY not overused..

That is how you find one.

Small Edit:

They also have clients for whom they’ve used themes to build their unique and robust, very well coded, super fast sites in a very short span of time, so therefore the delivery time would be just juicy.

They are usually identified by their websites, also found on awwwards (So that you can get even more beautiful sites and remove the bad ones. It helps you filter better and certainly doesn’t make you say “Please stop clutter this site that’s so sacred with your crap.”), you get on awwwards from THEIR site that have the BADGE as a proof of their worthyness and how they won SOTD. An example of such beauty would be:

http://nwokillers.weebly.com/our-beliefs.html

As you can see, not even the guys from UmbrellaStudios have got anything on them. NOTHING, I tell you.

Another edit, since I got some private messages about how good this is:

http://www.realbusiness.com/

You can definitely note the DOMAIN. Basically,it clearly states REAL BUSINESS. It means they MEAN BUSINESS and nothing else. They’re business titans. So you’re looking for domains such as: thomastheninja, thomastheexecutioner, codecobra, designsnake, johndesign, xxcodeanddesignxx and make sure they’re all .tk; .tk has been known for being owned only by TOP TIER QUALITY people. Don’t forget to WHOIS the site, it’s important you let them know that you’re a hacker and you set some grounds, they now know the rules. It’s important to keep good designers/developers under the leash. Also, make sure you google every single bit of information about them. You know what they say: Never do business with somebody you don’t know :)

The website itself? Flawless. They only paid around $50-100k for it, so no big deal. It’s not like you could get a better design for $500 on elance or so. So there’s that. A quality website spends A LOT of money on people with skill, a lot. That’s a treat of “how good somebody is”. So if the designer has made such a website, for a lot of money, you should instantly hire him. It’s a must. He inherently knows everything about conversion, good design and obviously is good, since he got that job.

I hope it helps you.

Are you looking for a web designer or web developer ?! First you’ve mentioned that you’re looking for a designer then you said that he has to know HTML5, jqyery, CSS3, bootstrap.
Sorry, for that i need HTML Designer.

My blood is boiling and I’m breathing heavily.

HTML Designer.
Well, I wouldn’t agree with you. Being a web developer I strongly believe that Web designer should have at least some basic HTML/CSS skills, to understand the limitations of the web and be able to see it from point of view of the developer, specifically what can/cannot be converted. This is very important point, otherwise the conversion could raise some serious issues and cost lot of time to adapt the design and that’s definitely not the type of cooperation I would go for.

I didn’t say that. It’s kind of obvious. Like, really, obvious. I think you’ve just insulted a 5 years old’s intelligence there :P It’s obvious that you need to know what the limitations are, how stuff is implemented, why something works, something doesn’t, otherwise you’ll spend your life repairing stuff. I thought that went without saying. Though, it doesn’t mean you should be writting it, like some people expect.

But when somebody says “Designer”5 seconds gap“that knows HTML/CSS/Javascript/jQuery” or “Developer that is also an UI guy / UX guy” my blood starts boiling and I just want to punch that person.

Do you know why people ask for those two categories of people? Money. It’s like “Let’s just find a guy that does it all.”.

Not cool.

Guess those “GLWS” comments will be put to good use now.

If you are removing and add somewhere else your customers will loose the updates, and you can loose points on that.

That is true, yes. But assuming you’d only do this in the case of a theme’s sales being exhausted and it being old – you won’t be adding many updates anyways. Perhaps not even one. Usually, after 7-8 months (if the theme didn’t sell), you don’t really get messages anymore. It’s completely dead.

So, it doesn’t truly apply. The volume of complaints will be so low, you’ll be able to cover them up individually.

Why do I have a feeling you are spying on me?

Yes. It’s allowed and cannot see how it is “unfair”.

BUT WAIIIIIIIIIIIT!!!

If lots of items are trending, doesn’t it just set them in a position where nothing is trending anymore because everything is trending?

MY GOD IS THIS REALITY?

If I recall, you can open a new buyer account and buy your item, and then run a competition to basically give away the details for that account, thereby giving your item in a contest, but also purchasing the item from Envato correctly. Don’t quote me on this though, check with Envato :)

YOU CRAFTY ONE!

I can’t see why that would be an issue, but, any official answer?

I really think Notch deserved it.

It’s actually one of the few acquisitions that I can say “It wasn’t just luck, Notch worked his ass off for this and it’s a good product”.

Hey… all my items ( 2 items :) ) are trending :D … what does this mean exactly ?

Well, it doesn’t really seem to be tied with sales. I think they’re tracking if the user has seen the page and bought the theme. So, for example, say that 10 users view a theme on a day and 3 buy it. That’d be considered “Trending”. Not sure – it just seems that way, doesn’t really relate to number of sales.
