A Web Designer creates websites and web pages that show off their client’s business to the largest number of potential customers possible.
The start of a typical day as a Web Designer may find you meeting with a new client to understand what they want from their website. You then take that vision and, by using different layouts, colors and images, create a template of a website that best fits their needs.
Once you and the client have agreed on how the website will look it is your job to gather all the information needed, such as photographs or written content, and convert them into HTML format, forming the finished website. Strong communication skills are necessary in this process, as you are translating a grand vision into a working website and must talk the client through the opportunities and limitations of that translation.
Having a good grasp on HTML and some familiarity with graphic design programs will set you up to do well as a Web Designer. Patience and flexibility will also be great assets, as you often work under tight deadlines, and have clients who change their minds quickly and with little notice.
