var gd = "graphicDesigner"; if gd === code { return "The coding Gods have granted you safe passage to coding heaven"; } else { return "Sorry dude, welcome to eternal torment in Adobe hell. Where the food is aweful and the employees fart constantly during yoga."; } Learning to code is never a waste of time. plus its fun.

every person should improve his personal skills, even an engineer, or a constructor or any body else. So, you should do that.

Many commercial design solutions have built-in automation tools (scripting). Saavy designers will use these to save themselves work, reduce mistakes, and coordinate with technology services. Because you can perform "should be automated" tasks better than designers who won't bother getting too technical (as if that's the issue) you can even bill more -- not just because you're faster, but because you actually spend more time developing your unique skills vs. getting stuck doing what amounts to the factory work of design. Here's an example: https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/automation.html "With InDesign scripting support, you can automate tedious production tasks such as placing and replacing images, correcting errors in text, and preparing files for printing..." Even if you are not using these tools, my point is ... designers learn scripting (coding) as a way to give them more flexibility and get back to designing.

I cannot create beautiful and artistic graphics, as I maybe am lacking sense of art, yet I can learn to code, you already have something that I don't, that's a plus, and with your will, I definitely believe you can, so, yeah, like all friends here said after all, it's SoloLearn, everyone can code, then so can you :)

I'm a primary school teacher, just getting into my third week on SoloLearn and I'm already convinced that in a year or two I'll be able to use coding for the benefit of my profession. Not trying to sound like a know-it-all, but I'm pretty sure this applies to you too. Just get started and you'll find out the (graphic) possibilities along the way. And don't forget it's fun learning new stuff!

Definitely it is a good idea to learn to code. These days companies and Startups are looking for composite skills it would we awesome if you can give them UX DESIGN + UX CODE I assume you already have the understanding of design principles now all you have to do is learn few technologies to put your ideas into reality. You will be fab 👌👌👌 Go ahead tackle coding head on !!! (It's fun when you see your ideas taking shape )
