All the requirements you need to have to be a great designer.
„In most people's vocabularies, design means veneer. It's interior decorating. It's the fabric of the curtains of the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design. Design is the fundamental soul of a human-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service.“
I'm a 20 years old webdesigner from germany absolutely in love with clean, minimal graphics and visuals. I've been designing the world wide web for about 1 year now and really fell in love with it since then and keep loving it more each day. It really feels like I was chosen to be a webdesigner.
My path of becoming one started with easy photoshop screendesigns and a little bit of drawing back in the days. I didn't have much of a clue how awesome designing and developing projects on the world wide web would be but surely took a shot at it as I got older and my interest in computers and its techniques rose. Starting with a static html page, which by the way looked really ugly, I kept increasing my skills.
Nowadays when I look back at what I used to do and how I approached becoming better day by day I'm really happy. Personally, I don't think I've ever made better decision. I mean look at me. I'm one of the few people out there who turned his hobby into a job and I absolutely love it.
