So I have attempted to start this post at least three times… Thought about it for way too long. I am not sure if I know the answer yet.
Whats on my mind. I have been analyzing just what I can do what I can be what am I. Yes deep indeed.
I have been thinking what does it mean to become a web designer. To be someone who works with their mind rather than their hands. It’s a fundamental change for me and I do enjoy it. However, it doesn’t mean there isn’t some reluctance and nervousness on ones reliance on ones creativeness and imagination.
As I completed some of my reading as I traveled through my course content I found an interesting way that the web designer was described;
a web designer is both a programmer and graphic designer. You program just enough to be dangerous and design enough graphics that you must know both disciplines.
Now I haven’t quoted the book directly and I am paraphrasing. But, the feeling and the point of it holds so true and has resonated deep within me as I move ever so closer to the end of my education.
I still have some time to find how my unique perspective will fit onto the net. The challenge is there and I will accept it. I am still only new to this but I have already helped people with my skills. I see ways to improve experiences and get the word out.
