You may be thinking: 'Yes, that sounds like me, but what exactly do web designers do all day?’. More than making great imagery, form and colour, web designers strategically create and build fully-functional websites meant to attract internet users. While often working within a collaborative team, some roles and responsibilities of the designer include:

  • Designing and conceptualizing website and mobile page layouts
  • Designing navigational elements
  • Responsive Design
  • Creating Wireframes
  • User Experience and research Imagery branding and sizing
  • Logo creation
  • Understanding technical elements and HTML coding
  • Quality Assurance and Testing

Our digital world is evolving rapidly and companies are no longer looking for DIY, unprofessional websites.
