What is a Web Designer?

Over the last 10 years, the World Wide Web has seen enormous growth and changes that challenged both the businesses that rely on it and the designers who build it. But what does it really mean to be a “web designer”?

The name conjures images of millennials collaborating in trendy work spaces, creating cool “online experiences”. The term is used very generally, and often refers to someone who builds websites. In the early days of the web, this was often the case. The web designer was a jack of all trades, handling all parts of web development.

However, design is only one aspect of a complete web development process. From concept to launch, a website requires a team of web development specialists, each doing their part to create the final product.
