Web Designer

A web designer develops and creates websites.  Usually, they are independent contractors and work in a wide range of industries.  A web designer is responsible for creating the look, layout, and features of a website. They meet with clients to assess their need and work with development teams or managers to keep the site up-to-date and prioritize needs.

Web designers also:

  • Write and edit content
  • Design webpage layout
  • Create backup files
  • Address coding problems
