So you wanna be a Web Designer

Many, many years ago, a web designer was someone who came up with somewhat believable Photoshop renderings of what a webpage could look like. Sometime later a web designer was expected to know some HTML along with pretty good Photoshop skills. A few years later, a web designer had to have some javascript knowledge, have good HTML skills, Photoshop knowledge along with decent discipline in aesthetics. Next, a web designer became someone who knows about CSS, DHTML, XHTML, XML, XSL, JSON and AJAX along with number of scripting frameworks.

Today, a typical web designer is most likely armed with most if not all of the skills mentioned above. Also, a web designer must possess a working knowledge of various web languages and a pretty good understanding of the programming language in general not to mention the knowledge of databases. Otherwise, it’s difficult to earn any¬† respect or work with other web professionals. In another words, a web designers is a serious jack-of-all-trades. Prepare to be overwhelmed.
