@bdtomlin One of the best places to look is on http://dribbble.com/. If you pay for a pro account ($20/yr I think) they give you the ability to search for people in your area. It has the added benefit of seeing their work as you search for them. They also have a job board that you pay to be put on. I’ve seen a pretty good success rate from a combination of those two.
I know we have also posted on www.authenticjobs.com a couple times too (Thats how I found out about the design opening)
It also helps to be clear about what you are looking for eg visual design, HTML / CSS, all of the above, etc. The more qualifications you look for in the designer the harder it will be to find them.
Let me know if you have any other questions or if you want me to look at a portfolio.
