"Advancement Possibilities and Employment Outlook."


There are several different career paths available in the field of web design. The entry level position of assistant designer involves designing certain elements of a web page or Web site.

Project managers are in charge of the design or redesign of entire Sites. The project manager may work with freelance artists and writers who supply materials to be incorporated into the Web site.

Design directors oversee the work of a number of web designers, reviewing and correcting it and making suggestions to improve the design. A design director is usually the person who meets most often with the client to discuss ideas and make sure a project meets the client's expectations.

The World Wide Web and its related businesses are growing at an   astounding rate, so the employment outlook for web designers is excellent through to 2020.

"Definition and Nature of the Work."

Web designers are responsible for creating the look and feel of World Wide Web pages for a client's Web site. This involves developing a graphic design that effectively communicates the ideas being promoted by the site. A web designer may take part in the initial planning of a Site. Also meeting with the client to discuss ideas for the layout and organization of the site. Also the types of colors or images to use (photos, illustrations, videos, etc.), and other matters concerning overall graphic layout. Sometimes a web producer has already developed a basic concept for the web page. In this case it is the designer's task to create a layout that matches the producer's ideas.

Once the basic concept is agreed upon, the designer must collect the text documents and images that will appear on the page and convert them   into a  form in which they can be viewed. This requires a mastery of HTML (hypertext markup language), the computer language used to create web pages. You must also have knowledge of the most current HTML extension and programs that make it possible to add special features to web pages. Examples are animations and interactive surveys. Web site may incorporate a variety of different functions, including clickable   e-mail contacts or the ability to download files to a computer. You must have a working knowledge of FTP (file transfer protocol) and other programs that enable these functions to work.

Designers must have an understanding of software functionality as well as graphic design skills to create successful Web pages.

Part of the  task is to create pages that can be used on any type of server and viewed with any type of browsers. To do this, you must be familiar with issues of browser/server compatibility, including which browsers and servers work well together and which ones do not. In addition, you must know computer languages such as Javascript, which can be used to create pages that are compatible with a wide range of hardware and software.

Because designers work with a client or web producer to develop  and refine ideas, they must have strong verbal and visual communications skills. You should be able to listen closely to the client and create pages that reflect what the client is looking for. They also need to be flexible because they may be called upon to change their pages. Since sites are constantly updated to remain current, a designer has to be able to work well under the pressure of tight deadlines and changing demands.

"Education and Training Requirements."

Designers typically have a background in fine arts, graphic design, or publishing combined hands-on computer experience. A web designer may have a four-year college degree, two-year associate's degree, or perhaps no advanced schooling at all.

All designers must have training in computer graphics packages such  as Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator.  Also knowledge of Flash, XML-based web applications and programming, XHTML programming, other web development languages and technologies.  You should also be comfortable working with a variety of operating systems such as Windows, Macintosh, and Unix. Since computer  technology changes rapidly,  designers must constantly stay abreast of new developments in graphics software packages as well as those in the World Wide Web and related technologies.

"Getting the Web Design Job."

As more companies in Cape Town develop their own Web sites. Job openings can be found in classified ads in local newspapers, magazines, and on the Internet itself. Quite often, designers begin their careers as graphic designers or layout artists for advertising firms or publishing companies. After learning the appropriate computer skills, they can transfer their artistic experience to the online world.

Prospective web designers should put together a portfolio of their work to show to potential employers. Many designers are freelancers who sell their services to clients on a consulting or contractual basis. Self-employed web developers often establish a personal page on the internet that showcases their skills for potential customers.

"Working Conditions."

Web Designers usually work in a modern office environment. Much of   the work requires long hours of solitary effort, although designers must also meet with clients and supervisors to discuss projects in progress. Freelance designers work mainly out of a home office, but they may be asked to perform some work at the client's place of business. Web designing takes place in a fast-paced, creative atmosphere in which one must constantly develop new ideas and respond quickly to changing needs. This may involve working long and irregular hours to meet tight deadlines or make last-minute changes to an existing project.
