Many people think that if they can put text and photos together and create something which they like, they think they are ready to declare themselves web designers.
It’s just like saying that just because I know what pills to pop, I am ready to become a medical doctor.
So how does one know if one has hired a true web designer and not someone who thinks he or she is?
Small things which matter, in this case. Things which only real web designers agonise over.
Take the www for instance. I get upset when I type a URL without the www and it gives me a site not found message. Whether there is or isn’t a www before the domain name is a small matter but it is an important small matter. Many people are so used to typing the domain direct onto the browser address bar without the www. You would think web designers would at least pay attention to issues like this.
