Have you looked at tower(http://www.git-tower.com/) and 

Tower is a really slick GUI and integrates with Beanstalk, the hosted repo.
As a designer/dev, it allowed me to easily setup repos and automated 
deployments to my remote test server.
They do cost. But having limited experience with(and patience for) command 
lines and server configs, it's worth it.
