What Makes a Good Web Designer?

The question is very good. If you’ve come to this question yourself, you’re on the right track. In fact, could the title of the post also be “what makes a good professional”? Well, there are several ways to approach the issue, but here are some things that can help you recognize who you should work with.

Many people call themselves web designers, but this is often not entirely true. There is not necessarily a problem with professionalism. Professionals in this field are also constantly learning and training themselves, because new trends and new solutions are coming out every day, and if someone wants to keep up and create really cool websites, they can certainly never stop learning. Many make the mistake of learning the basics, picking up the title of web designer and leaning back waiting for a miracle. I myself have been hesitating for a long time about when I will be considered a web designer. Then I realized I was already. Not because I’ve learned the basics of the profession, since to be truly professional, I need a lot more, but because my attitude is good about being a “web designer”. This means that many people, when a client wants to accomplish something according to their ideas, the contractor prefers to discourage him because he either doesn’t know the technology to do it, or just because he’s lazy to look it up and wants to work with his already proven methods. I’m not saying you have to squint and confuse what the client is asking by saying, “it’s okay so” or every impossible request from the client must be met. No. There are times when you need to be able to say that this can’t be done, or that it would take a long time to improve on it, so the price can change as you have to investigate how to handle the request. In any case, there has to be a will to improve and a constant desire to learn for this profession because it is changing very fast. I think everything can be solved, you just have to want to and constantly absorb new information.

Of course, I have also encountered steep questions, but I think that if, after a little follow-up, it turns out that what the client is asking for is not feasible, he must be told with arguments. You will understand, but you must first take the fatigue and map out whether the thing in question can be solved, not reject it right away. We are for the customer and not the customer for us…
