What I like about web design


I like the creativity involved in web design the most. I enjoy choosing colors and trying out different fonts. Websites can look however the designer and/or the client wants them to look.

HTML also fascinates me. Coding is not my favorite thing in the world, and I hope I never have to build a website from scratch again, but it blew my mind that every design element can be translated into lines of this gobbledygook we call code! When I explained that concept to my family, they looked at me like I was insane.

Learning and applying basic HTML principles makes the Internet and website building less intimidating. Both are more approachable because I have this, admittedly basic, knowledge about what goes on “behind-the-scenes” so to speak.

The Internet has become a basic necessity in the 21st century; there’s no reason to be afraid of it.
