Website Designer Web designers use both creative and technical skills to build or revamp websites. They must be able to picture how a site will look (at the 'front end'), and also understand how it will work (at the 'back end'). As a web designer, you could work on anything from an interactive educational resource, to an online shopping site. Your main duties would include: meeting the client to discuss what they want their site to do and who it is aimed at preparing a design plan, showing the site structure and how the different parts link together deciding which text, colours and backgrounds to use laying out pages, positioning buttons, links and pictures, using design software adding multimedia features like sound, animation and video testing and refining the design and site features until everything works as planned uploading the site to a server for publication online. Depending on the project, you may be contracted to maintain your client's website once it is up and running. SEE FULL CAREER PROFILE
