What is a Web Designer?

A web designer is an IT professional who is responsible for designing the layout, visual appearance and the usability of a website.

A good web designer needs to have both creative graphic skills and technical skills. They need to be able to visualise how a site will look (the graphical design of the site) and how it will function (conversion of a design into a working website).

The term Web Designer is often incorrectly interchanged with the term Web Developer and vice versa. A web developer is often more likely to be a software developer who works with programming languages to create a higher level of interactions on a website such as the integration with a database system.

Some of the skills usually associated with web designers include:

  • Good working knowledge of one or more of the following web designer packages: Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Fireworks, Flash
  • The ability to create compliant XHTML and CSS, not always using one of the packages shown above
  • An understanding of scripting languages such as JavaScript, PHP and .NET is often desirable
  • The ability to work to tight deadlines
  • Strong creative skills
  • Up-to-date skills inline with technology and software developments

The foundation of a web designer’s job is XHTML and CSS. These two combine to create the Web as we know it today. A good understanding of these two skills is essential for success in this field.
