59 Web Designer Questions and Answers:

1 :: As a web designer what market areas do you specialize in?

Web designers can work in multiple sectors, but over time they usually begin to specialize. If you don't yet have much experience, you have probably done different jobs in different sectors. You might still say what you feel most expert at, like business sites or personal sites. And if you do specialize already, then say so with confidence. But you might also want to mention your creative adaptability.

2 :: Tell me what artistic education or expertise can you bring to the job of a web designer in our company?

Web designers are visual artists. They usually combine computer education with web design coursework, but a degree or course in art is also valued. A special challenge for designers of websites is to create an aesthetically pleasing interactive environment - the site should not only look beautiful, but be easy and interesting to navigate.

3 :: Define web template?

A website template is a ready-made HTML layout for webmasters. Typically, webmasters need to only edit the text and links in the HTML page, and they can then have a website up and running in a very short amount of time. Web templates make the creation of a website easier and faster. Web templates are easy to edit and customize using an HTML editor.

4 :: What is CSS file?

CSS stands for "Cascading Style Sheets", and are used to control and manage font styles, font sizes, and web site color combinations that are used in a web page. In order to retain continuity of "look and feel" throughout a website, all pages within a website will often refer to a single CSS file. The CSS file is typically contained in a separate file from the website, and the various web pages retrieve the CSS file each time a web page is displayed. CSS files make global appearance changes easy a single change in a CSS file will mean that any pages using that CSS file will automatically display the changes.

5 :: Which areas of web design you work?

Design does not only mean graphics. Web designers are computer specialists. They write codes and use code programs (JavaScript, PHP, etc.).

6 :: Do you have any experience delegating tasks to subordinates, or do you work alone?

Some web designers work in teams or even companies. The head designer might be responsible for only part of the tasks, like client communication, research, coding, etc., while the others do graphics and copying.

Dreamweaver templates allow webmasters to define "editable" and "non-editable" regions of a webpage. The "non-editable" regions can only be edited in the Dreamweaver Template. Any changes made to the Dreamweaver Template update any HTML pages that use the template.

8 :: What is more important SEO or Web design?

Web Design and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) are not mutually exclusive. The best webmasters are familiar with Search Engine Optimization techniques, as well as Website and Graphical Design. It is difficult to have a successful website if you neglect either SEO or Design. The two are intricately woven, and really must coexist to achieve website success.

9 :: What is "WYSIWYG" editor?

WYSIWYG stands for "What You See Is What You Get", so if you are using a WYSIWYG editor to design and create your web page, you have a pretty good idea of how the page will look in a web browser. Think of Microsoft Word when you change a font, you see the font change immediately in the MS Word document. The same is true in a WYSIWYG Editor, in that you see changes immediately within the editor itself, as opposed to having to save the page and then separately load and view it in a web browser.
