What is web design?

Web design involves creating user-friendly websites for business. Unlike the coding-heavy role of a web developer, web designers make a website look professional, with a skill-set that focusses on page layout, colour scheme and user interface.

How to become a web designer

Employers expect web design candidates to have a strong working knowledge of graphic design and technical IT. Many web design roles, however, may offer roles where you can become a web designer without a degree.

Learning web design courses at Pitman Training, for instance, provides the expert knowledge and software experience that candidates need to succeed. Not only is each qualification CPD-accredited, but trainees are also able to learn at their own pace, either at home or in-centre.
