There are hundreds of website designers in Manchester ranging from start-up designers that have just left university, up to large web design agencies that work with global brands. Most will take on work from anywhere in the UK, it does not have to be kept local. However from a client perspective (your perspective), locally based businesses would do well to talk to local creative companies. The main reason being the ability to meet up and run through ideas and approaches face to face. E-mail and phones are great for certain tasks, but if your business is investing thousands of pounds into a website, then it needs to be right. If there are ongoing web costs, then having review meetings is also good; they are more likely to produce results if they know they have to meet up to explain their progress. Due to the growth of the internet, face to face contact has become less of a trend, certainly for design agencies who can handle many more clients if they never have to meet or talk. This is good in one sense, but from a client perspective, having a close working relationship will mean more value for money.
