Web designers are responsible for the look, feel and navigation of web sites. Using a combination of text, graphics and multimedia web designers create a unique user experience on the Internet.

Web design is a high profile role. Your work is viewed by many people every day and though that is satisfying, frustrations can run high when mistakes are made. If you are artistic at heart, detail driven, something of a perfectionist and thrill at the thought of thousands seeing your work, then web design may be the career for you.
