In Web Design Confidential, we take a look at what over 5,000 global web designers had to say in the 2011 Web Design Survey hosted by WebDesignTuts+. We look at who we are, how we work, what we know, and our opinions on what exactly makes a top-notch web designer. Some of the results might surprise you.
For instance, did you know…
- Finding ways to relate education to your work is the number one influence to being successful?
- Only 9% of freelance designers charge a flat hourly rate?
- Over three quarters of clients request a content management system?
- More than a third of designers have no opinion on spec work?
We also get the experts to weigh in. You’ll hear from Vitaly Friedman of Smashing Magazine, Sarah Parmenter of You Know Who Design, Veerle of Duoh!, top-selling ThemeForest template designers like Kreisi and Cudazi, and others. They’ve kindly shared advice that comes from years of experience and cuts to the chase about how to improve your design career.
During the process of digging through thousands of survey responses and chatting with the top names in our field, I’ve learned a lot about our industry. I think you will too.
