How To Choose Web Designing as Career Profile


Few people with an interest in tech and a misspent youth dabbling with code will have failed to consider the idea of being a web designer - but how much of a viable career is it?

If you’ve been struggling to find your path in life, or just fancy a change, then the idea might appeal to you. Before you go packing in the day job though, it’s worth knowing the ins and outs of what life is like as a web designer so you can make an informed choice on whether it’s for you.

What Do Web Designers Do?

They create websites; that part probably goes without saying! For the most part, web designers will work on creating new websites for clients, or maintaining and updating an existing site.

The exact details of their job depend on how they work. If they are self-employed and offer their services on a freelance basis, they will mostly be creating and maintaining a number of small sites. If they work for a company, then they are more likely to be focused on one specific site which is their responsibility to keep running smoothly.

Which Is Better?

Neither - working freelance or on an employed basis both have their merits. Both are equally lucrative.

One note that is worth considering is that there are relatively few qualifications required to go into business for yourself. You’ll need to be able to web design and code, obviously, but these skills can be self-taught. It’s helpful if you’re aware of a reliable reseller hosting provider so you can source the space to create the sites for your clients, and access to essential web design software (such as PhotoShop) is a must. Apart from that, you’re good to go and start offering your services.

If you want to work for a company, however, they will likely have a more stringent approach. They might want qualifications, an extensive portfolio, or proof of your experience even in an amateur field. If you want something you can just jump into and see if it fits, these requirements might be a barrier you’re not ready for. Thankfully, you still have the freelancing option.

What Do Web Designers Earn?

It entirely depends on how you’re working. In US dollars, the average wage is between $60,000-80,000 per annum, but this will usually be for an employed web designer at a large firm.

On a self employed basis, you should be able to make a good living. It’s not going to make you a millionaire, but it’s a viable way of earning. If you decide to go down the self employed route, it’s best to start small, alongside your regular job, and build up from there.

What Kind Of People Make Good Web Designers?

A good web designer will usually have excellent attention to detail; they need to be able to identify problems that might be very minute in nature but have major complications. They also need to be diligent and happy to evolve; web design is constantly changing, so if you want the same job year-in-year-out, this might not be for you. If, however, you thrive on a challenge and love to learn, then it might just be the career path you’ve been waiting for.
