Graphic Design Schools and Website Design Training

raised-hand-in-classWho Needs Website Design Training?
The first answer that comes to most people's minds is usually "computer programmers."

But if you are a graphic designer and want to make yourself more valuable to your firm or are in the process of looking for a graphic design position, having website design skills may be the difference between qualifying or not qualifying for the job you want.

According to the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2010-2011 Edition):

"Employment is expected to grow about as fast as average. Keen competition for jobs is expected; individuals with Web site design and animation experience will have the best opportunities."

Although graphic designers have been traditionally associated with print media, the job description has expanded and often includes the duties of providing graphics for websites and website design layouts.

Does your graphic design college offer website design courses? If so, make sure you take advantage of them.

As a graphic designer in order to stay competitive you must keep up with the latest graphic design trends and techniques.

With the emergence of the Internet as an important source of information and commerce for increasing numbers of people, website design is a very important skill set that employers seek in potential hires.

Graphic Design Schools and Community Colleges
Working professionals have busy schedules and are sometimes limited to the amount of time available for outside interests and pursuits--let alone continued education.

However, community colleges offer various certificate programs and associate's degrees in website design and graphic design that can bring you up to speed on the latest technologies and design fields.  Night classes or weekend classes are often available.

Graphic design colleges present two-year and four-year degrees. Some offer online distance learning options in order to accommodate those who need the most flexibility in class scheduling.

There are website designers who have mastered the coding (programming) of websites but lack an artistic eye to design one properly. Conversely there are graphic designers who excel in design but are at a loss in website design basics.

Whether you are a web designer seeking to increase your artistic side or a graphic designer seeking to improve your skills in the art of web layout, taking courses to improve your proficiency as a designer can be very beneficial.
