How to Become a Web Designer | Web Design Careers
This is Practical Advice for Staring a Web Design Career. Becoming a Web Designer and how to get started is a question many designers often ask me about on this channel.

Learning web design, learning html code and learning design principles matter. But you need to understand what a web design career and working as a web designer actually involves and how to get hired as a web designer by clients and employers. What they expect and need from you.

Common questions include what Web Design Software you need to learn, Do You Need to Learn HTML Coding, Do you need to go to college to learn Web Design or can you learn HTML and things you need to on your own?

    Hi, i am currently 16 years old and my future career ambition is to become a Web Designer. My speciality is graphics, and the visual part of the website, however i don't have a clear understanding to the coding prospect. Is there anything you can suggest to strengthen my understanding on coding, thanks Robert, great video.

    Thanks Robert! This is a great video. I highly recommend Team Treehouse for learning web design. Lynda is a good recourse, however I have found that Team Treehouse basically pampers you through everything from intro to the internet to advanced level programming. I have been providing web design for a while now as a freelancer starting back in high school and have since launched my site https://hawpmedia.com/

    I think alot of selling sites comes down to organization and a process. After only a few years of doing design, I just started creating a process that works for me. i feel comfortable selling sites now. Thanks for your video! Checkout https://hawpmedia.com and let me know what you think of my design.
