Cathryn Ott That's great to hear.
In that case I would suggest keep going down this web designing path.
- what new HTML5 features are.
- learn the tags and understand how it binds CSS and JS files to a web page.
- Create custom page layouts that works on any screen size. This is called responsive designing. It's in great demand in the market.
- master new CSS3 and CSS4 features.
- mastering CSS selectors is super handy in multiple job roles.
- supporting different browsers
- working with DOM and BOM
- creating raw SVGs with code
- using tools like inkskape or Illustrator.
- Incorporating them in websites.
You will be able to have a better assessment on picking the stream if starting with designing.
People experienced in design are in great demand and are called UI/UX designers.
Cathryn Ott Before I answer this question I d like to know is it web development or designing you want to get into.
Web development usually means doing full stack development that includes writing code on managing
- backend ( Database, Infrastructure, Server, Security)
Now coming back to main question.
If it's web development then you ll have to decide because learning backend concepts can be a daunting task.
If it's web designing then your graphic design skills will complement superbly
Those two fields are getting more distance from each other, I would ask yourself which would you like to do more than the other and be laser focused on that.
who is the sad man that down votes on here?
