The way we create web sites has changed dramatically over the past few years, along with the skills required to build them. Your role may be as a designer who passes on your Photoshop work to someone else for implementation, a markup genius who knows all the latest CSS tricks, a server-side specialist who rarely sees the light of a DOCTYPE, or perhaps something else entirely.
But this is an industry where generalists thrive; having a working knowledge of skills outside your current job description may prove the key to a long and successful career in this business. Freelance designer Dave Shea is here to share some of his experience from diverse projects that have demanded a wide variety of tasks. We’ll be looking at some of the important skills and techniques that make up the modern web designer’s toolbox, including design thinking, content planning strategies, scripted user interface elements, and much more.
