A Web Designer is a person responsible for imagining, creating and setting up a functional website in accordance with the preliminary project prescriptions. A Web Designer will most likely be asked to work in a team composed of other web designer, computer program and software developers, graphic artists, User Interface designers, etc.
A web Designer uses a code and / or functional coding software to create web sites, and needs to fully understand the other technical disciplines involved in the project in a way that enables him to discuss specific technical issues with his co-workers.
Along with the technical coding and programming skills necessary to carry out the job of creating and maintaining web sites, a Web Designer often has to directly be in contact with the final costumer or user of the produced web site. The basic skills of a Web Designer are:
- Be able to meet the specific technical prescriptions of a web site building project
- Have good communication skills
- Be able to either work as an independent or in a technical team
