What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

I want to ask questions that web designers (Those folks who can make pixels dance with CSS and HTML) will read. I'm not seeing a Stack Exchange specific for them.

Which would be the closest? Webmasters? Graphic Design?

--Edit--

Sorry, I realized I wasn't being clear. Specifically I wanted to ask questions about the business of Web Designers. Stuff like "What are things to look for in a designer's portfolio when looking to hire?", "What are the best resources for hiring the right designers?", etc.

Regarding your edit, it's highly likely that your example questions are off-topic throughout the SE network, since they are highly subjective "poll" questions. However, you could try Startups or possibly programmers.stackexchange.com , although check the Six Guidelines first. –  Robert Harvey Jun 3 '11 at 21:01
    
@Robert, while I broadly agree with your assessment I think that there are, potentially, two area 51 sites worth a look to discuss those issues: Developer Team Leads and Interviewing & Recruiting. Though I'd more happily recommend the latter, given the edit. –  David Thomas Jun 3 '11 at 21:04

@David: Both of those sites are still in the definition phase. –  Robert Harvey Jun 3 '11 at 21:06
    
@Robert, true; my...language drifted a little in my response to you. In my answer I suggested they were maybe 'worth following,' which is rather more accurate than my above comment. Oops. +1 for paying more attention to my wording... :) –  David Thomas Jun 3 '11 at 21:08

Once upon a time the appropriate resource was Doctype, but I've not seen it mentioned in recent months. I'd suggest that you ask questions related to the mechanisms of your design (JS/HTML/CSS...) on Stackoverflow itself, since that site attracts many html designers and devs (even if, strictly speaking, web-design might be off-topic),and questions related to the user interface itself, and design, on User Experience.

With regards to the edit:

Specifically I wanted to ask questions about the business of Web Designers. Stuff like "What are things to look for in a designer's portfolio when looking to hire?", "What are the best resources for hiring the right designers?", etc.

I'd suggest that for this kind of discussion Programmers might be the better site to read, for discussions around the broad subject of 'how to hire a good programmer/designer.' (The previous paragraph redacted in response to @Mark Trapp's comment, below). As to the question of 'best resources,' it's possible, though I'm following neither, that either Developer Team Leads, or possibly Interviewing & recruiting, might be proposals worth following.

Sorry, I wasn't very clear. I clarified above. –  Drew Jun 3 '11 at 20:57
    
@Drew, you did indeed, I've tried to revise my answer a little to offer something a little more useful to you. –  David Thomas Jun 3 '11 at 21:02
    
This stuff isn't on-topic for Programmers.SE, but might be on-topic for GraphicDesign.SE. Not all questions have a home on Stack Exchange (yet). –  user149432 Jun 3 '11 at 21:19
