There’s a never-ending debate about whether web designers should be able to code. Web designers who can’t code their own designs still exist. When the web first took off, the designation “web designer” was limited in scope. Technological developments led to an ever-growing demand for web designers, and now the field is open to unlimited possibilities for specialization.
If you are talented with graphics yet clueless when it comes to coding and the back end, then you will most likely be the first who a firm that is tight on budget lets go. Does splitting your share with another coder make sense as a freelancer? It’s simple: the more skilled you are, the more valuable you will be.

Every photographer looks for the best frame for his shots but, unfortunately, weather condition, time of the day and other elements greatly affect the final result. How the sky looks like is one of this.
This could be a really annoying thing. It could happen that you, as photographer, have always dreamt to take that wonderful picture but the weather is down so, instead of your great shot you get that washed out dull sky. A dull grey sky sure is not the perfect background color for a nice shot!
Obviously you can wait for a better sky in a different day or in different condition. By the way not always you can come back a day or even a week later to repeat the shot.
These days, we’re all trying to build websites quickly and easily, and developers are turning to open-source content management systems (CMS) to help them get the job done. Multiple content management systems are floating around the web, and finding the right one has become extremely challenging. Without a clearly defined set of requirements, you might be tempted by fancy but ultimately useless functionality. What, then, should you keep in mind when facing the dilemma of choosing the perfect CMS?
A CMS can hugely affect the time it takes to update and maintain a website. This article aims to help developers find the right one for their project and will review some of the best ones out there.

An online portfolio should present your image and capabilities flawlessly. Strategic planning and preparation will ensure a professional presentation. Creative designers need a place to showcase their work online. You could use an online portfolio service—many websites offer free and professional layouts—or you could make your own, with a personal touch, through which others will recognize you easily.
Starting your first online portfolio can spark many questions and anxieties. Your artwork reflects your personality and skill and must make an impression. The designs on your website will be scrutinized, so your portfolio should set a standard for what can be achieved in graphic design. Showcase your best work effectively and you will win over clients.
