The Web Design Career Guide • Overview

Imagine Your Web Design Career

The Internet has created a whole new segment of artists that didn't exist 20 years ago. They are web designers, and they merge creativity with marketing, merchandising, technology, and business. Web design goes beyond artistry and imagination, by putting ideas to use for companies and individuals.

Why choose web design?
Throughout your web design career, you will create material that people around the world will see everyday. Your clients will rely on you to execute marketing strategies and to communicate valuable information to the public. Your ideas must not only be unique, but also useful and user-friendly. No workday will ever be tedious. The hours are often flexible. You will work heavily with clients; the work is far from solitary. The environment is creative, fun, and casual. The income and work prospects are much higher than the average, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. While many jobs are to be found working in firms, large or small, there are extraordinary self-employment opportunities to be had in web design. In fact, 30% of web designers are self-employed, says the Guide to College Majors. Whether your strengths are artistic, technological, or business-oriented, you will find a niche in web design.

Studies in Web Design
Web designers are often the first to understand and implement new technology, so the greater the amount of study, the greater your job prospects. Your studies will teach you how to merge the age-old, standardized principles of design with those of marketing and technology. You must be able to work under constraints of budget, time, ability, resources, and message; problem-solving skills are a must. And although your studies will take you far, talent will take you further. If you have the drive and talent to succeed, you're on your way to an exciting career.
