As I mentioned in my introductory post I am interested in pursuing a career in web design. At the moment I have limited knowledge of css/html. I intend to go down routes such as Flash, JS and MySQL to help me on my travels. My end result is to hopefully venture into self-employment and work either from home or in premises up here. There are not many web design companies this far north and I believe that I could in time be up to the task. I’ve thought up a couple of questions which I would appreciate answers to for my own research and just out of sheer interest. What made you want to become a web designer? Did you go to school for it or are you self-taught? Are you currently self-employed or work for a company? If self-employed, how did you find the journey to being self-employed and given the chance, would you do it again? If employed with a company, would you rather self-employment do you enjoy the team aspect of the job? Obviously you are learning more and more each day, how long did it take you to become comfortable with coding/designing?
