New Design Opportunities In Canada

24 FEB 2014

While it may seem like web design is all coding and slaving away in a dark, dank office all day, that couldn’t be any further from the truth. Because of the ever-changing nature of the World Wide Web, designers’ jobs have been changing just as frequently and just as fast. Far from just coding the back ends of websites and staring at text editors all day, web designers are responsible for a wealth of things in the world of websites, from incorporating new content into existing sites to building beautiful and web-responsive applications. If you have a keen eye for design and a willingness to get your hands dirty with a variety of software and content management systems, web design could be an extremely fulfilling career for you. Check out this blog post by Academy of Learning College Alberta for more information on your new design opportunities as a web designer.

“Designing web pages for different people and companies on a freelance basis can be extremely lucrative, as you can be working on many different contracts in tandem, and the pay is usually quite good as you’re able to charge your own rates. Many freelance web designers work on three to four projects at a time, and if you’re able to juggle the work, the rewards are pretty incredible. Not only do you get to make your own hours, but you usually work from home, meaning that you enjoy a relaxed and comfortable work atmosphere.”
