A web designer is the person who is responsible for the making of a website. In most cases, web designers go through rigorous training in web designing courses that are offered by various institutes. The programs can be categorized into advanced degree level and certificate level courses.
The importance of the web is increasing on a daily basis and that is why the prospects of the web designers in India and abroad are looking brighter each day. Technical knowledge (with expertise in HTML, Flash, and Photoshop) and creativity are the two main attributes that a web designer must have. Qualified web designers earn an average salary of around INR 2.5 lakhs to 3 lakhs. However, those designers who do not have any formal training usually get a starting salary of around INR 10,000 to INR 15,000 per month.
As web designing is an integral part of Internet marketing, organizations are heavily depending upon web designing companies to help them with the same. There is a lot of scope in this sector and the dynamism involved in this field necessitates that the designers keep themselves updated with the latest technologies. The salary of the professionals would witness a rise according to the amount of experience they have.

A web designer however must not be confused with a web developer because the latter mainly deals with matters related to the web server.
