Please don’t recommend anyone without knowing something about them.
Just because they were a friendly person doesn’t make them a good web designer.
We had a client who recommended their web-designer (with whose work they were very happy) to one of their clients who wanted an e-commerce shop.
Unfortunately, they had never built an online shop.
The result was a disaster and ended with the loss of the client despite our client having paid out a significant sum in compensation in an attempt at appeasement.
