The Basics

HTML,CSS, JavaScript the knowledge of how to fit the front end with the back. This is essential in modern design. Couple this with an excellent working knowledge of Adobe® Photoshop® and W3C coding standards. That's why they call me a Web Designer.

Design Sense

Web Designers must know design. Having a good sense of design is important. There is a lot more to it than simply knowing which colours you like. You should be aware of the elements of design as well as the basic design principles.
