Being able to make things for the web... Ah, what a delightful skill it is. Anyone can do it. Web design has one of the lowest entry costs of any hobby or profession in history, and the potential for what you can create is vast, even limitless.
As the world becomes familiar with the web, and more comfortable with digital interactions, we begin to see the potential of the web for practical applications. It's not for nerds anymore—it hasn't been for a long time (a "long time" in internet terms, that is.)
Think about how much simpler people's lives could become with the thoughtful application of the web. If that sounds good to you, then you might just be a web designer.
I'm starting off recently as a web designer learning newer scripting, and or otherwise, language for the web. What I like about this is that I can do this job anywhere. While designing is not my main strengths I can still do this having a prior experience creating websites.
It's one of those rare professions where you are able to make a living with art. I personally enjoy it because it mixes visual communication with technical functionality. You also have the chance to choose to work as part of a team or by yourself.
In a very short period of time, the web has transformed the way the world works, thinks, learns and communicates. It has brought on a new era of enlightenment and has the potential to take the human race to the next level. As a Web Designer, I am proud to be a part of this and hope to contribute to make it even better. Are you up to the challenge?
I have found being a web designer and developer very satisfying. I am a freelancer so I choose my own jobs, work my own hours, and set my own pace. I love the creativity and the chance to help solve problems for people.
