I have another question...
If I were to want to be a full blown Web Designer, starting out basically doing freelance work, but then having the knowledge/practice to turn it into a full blown career...
What would be suggestions on things that I need to look at getting?
Software to make my life easier as a Web Designer?
I started out my degree thinking I was going one direction and what I am finding is that I am really enjoying my Web Designing classes much much more. In high school even I picked up old HTML just for fun, never had a class in HS, just designed pages for friends and local business in raw HTML. Course now adays its gotten more advanced and I have already done my HTML 4.01/XHTML/CSS course and love all the new upgrades.
But like I said, I am enjoying all of it so far, and think maybe I might change my elective options into more of a Web Design/Analyst background. It seems those jobs as well are still thriving depending where you are, and I figure until I am comfortable and have all the tools under my belt to become a full blown designer as a career, I could do some freelance work for some small businesses.
Thanks in advance for any replies!
