Web Designer

Web designers use their creativity and technical skills to build or redesign websites. They need to be able to picture how a site will look and also understand how it will work.

As a web designer, you could work on any kind of website, from an interactive education site to one offering online shopping. Depending on the project, you could also be asked to manage your client's website once it is up and running.
