How to Become a Web Designer
Web designers have a creative side to their job, but they also have technical skills that need to be mastered. They need to be able to build a webpage from scratch, or revamp a current webpage to their clients’ needs.
Your day-to-day tasks include:
- Meeting clients to discuss what they need and want
- Preparing a plan and looking into links and site structure
- Deciding on text, colours and backgrounds
- Working in a team with others to complete a project
What do I need to start with:
You, obviously, need an interest in graphic arts, websites, and design. An interest in advertising would also help, as you can learn how to use design to appeal to customers.
What will I study:
You will study the structure of web basics and how to design a functional and effective website.
What else do I need:
Web designers also generally work on a team, with a group of people so you will need the skills to be able to work alongside people and create something together.
Where are the jobs:
There are a ton of agencies that offer web design, in any part of Canada or the entire world. Remember, self-employment is also a very viable and popular option.
