Careers in STEM
Web designers combine creativity with technical know-how to produce websites that meet their clients' requirements
As a web designer, you will plan, create and code web pages, using both technical and non-technical skills to produce websites that fit your customers' requirements.
Being involved in the technical and graphical aspects of pages, you will determine not only the look of the website but how it works as well. You may also be responsible for the maintenance of an existing site.
The term web developer is sometimes used interchangeably with web designer, but this is misguided. Web developing is a more specialist role, focusing on the back-end development of a website and will incorporate, among other things, the creation of highly complex search functions.
