WEB DESIGNER

May 10, 2017, noon

A web designer creates the visual elements that make up a web page, deciding on layout, colour schemes and text formatting. A web designer works with a variety of programming languages to create web pages and Internet sites. Web designers are responsible for the visual look of a page, and in larger organisations they usually only work in the design field.

In smaller operations they may be responsible for the efficient functioning of the entire site. Web designers must therefore have a good grasp of traditional design fundamentals, as well as an advanced knowledge of the current and emerging Internet technologies that will allow them to make their ideas a reality on the Internet. A web designer will spend most of their working day on a computer with an Internet connection. This allows a certain freedom to the job and many web designers work from home. 

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

In the past, many web designers were self taught. As the role itself is open to some interpretation and different clients require different solutions, some web designers may lean more towards either the technical or design side of the role. A great web designer will be skilled in both. Employers will either be looking for experience or qualifications with proof of some experience. 

A candidate can  opt for a career as a web designer after 10 +2 and degree, followed by an additional diploma course in web designing. To be a web designer you need to learn about the web and various associated program languages like the HTML, ASP or PHP. An updated knowledge on designing software's or HTML editors is a must. You should know popular software's like Dream weaver, Photoshop, Flash and many others.

Knowledge in coding, and scripting in Java / Flash, CSS style sheet etc for styling web pages in browsers gives you an edge in the field of designing. A degree in computer science is also an added advantage for those in this field. There are several computer training centres offering diploma and short term certificate courses in this field. The courses will give an idea on the elements and principles of design, how to use colours and fonts effectively, about the layout or organisation of elements in a web page, using graphics and images, easy navigation techniques, accessibility of the webpage to as may users as possible and the knowledge for using various designing software's.

SKILL REQUIREMENTS

A web designer needs:

  • to be able to work independently or as part of a team
  • to be able to work well under pressure
  • good communication skills
  • an aptitude for design
  • to be familiar with computer programming languages
  • to keep up to date with new web technologies and trends
