Having spent years working with designers outside of the development company my experience is that the most critical thing is to make sure that you have deadlines for delivery of the designs so that compete integration and testing can take place. Designers often push it to the limit and this can cause you to run late. They would probably say the same about developers but they are wrong ;-)
The other thing to watch for is designers putting in extras that aren't there in the spec and getting clients to think that they are getting something that they were not in the first place
Generally speaking if you can strike up a good relationship with a freelance designer it can work very well - good luck

> Not directly PHP related, but it feels close enough to be able to ask.
> We've always had in-house designers, people we can walk up to and talk to whenever we want. We're looking at our options for design work in the future (Photoshop, HTML and CSS). We could continue with in-house designers, or we could work solely with freelancers.
> Does anyone have any relevant experience of using only freelance designers? What are the things to watch out for?
> As usual, recruitment agencies please leave us well alone.
> We build really good websites
