The main task of a web designer is to plan and set up websites and interactive mobile technologies for various clients. Web designers communicate with customers and work with internal teams to code websites to the latest standards. They also provide technical support and solve website-related problems for clients and co-workers. Designers must be able to give clear feedback and suggestions to improve existing and newly developing websites.
Web designers often work full-time, but freelance web designers set their own hours. They may work with PCs or Mac computers and must be able to learn new tools and software quickly. The ability to multi-task allows web designers to manage more than one project at a time, and an eye for detail is important to ensure clients are satisfied with the final websites. Web designers should be team players since much of the work is handled by multiple designers and content creators.
