Graphic design has before been described with this quote from Tim Brown, “The evolution from ‘design’ to ‘design thinking’ is the story of the evolution from the creation of products to the analysis of the relationship between people and products, and from there to the relationship between people and people.” Web design is clearly in evolution and when deciding on making it your career, know that now more than ever, we face complex problems that designers are uniquely capable to solve by integrating technology, business and human factors alike. When starting up with web design, be sure to have a proper website display and interaction on any device, avoid “painting lipstick on a pig” by including a designer from the get-go, make sure to stand out with a good design and transcend culture as well as language barriers, and remember the goal is a pleasurable overall experience; functional beautiful and simple. In other words, they want to ensure they are hiring the right people for the job and it might as well be you.
