Am I a Web Designer?
Or a website designer? As I questioned myself this, I went, “yeah..being a web designer has a different meaning to it?” It’s because a web designer could mean someone who designs/develop something for the web. Still don’t get it? Well, the web which is also known as the Internet has many things that can be designed for it. A website, a CMS, a search engine and others.
When I asked myself again, am I really a web designer? It just hit me, I don’t design/develop applications for online use. So how can I be considered a web designer in real life? My job scope most likely falls into the criteria of a website designer because I design websites that work for the web. Hope everyone could follow me on this.
Now, a web designer as I interpreted above could actual be leaning towards a developer. A person who codes and develops applications for the web. So in other words, a developer is the person designing for the web by producing useful applications for it. A website isn’t qualified as an application because it’s more like a showcase.
