Website design for an IT consultancy firm
I know this sounds like a dumb question, but do you have to learn HTML, CSS, Java, and JQuery to be a website designer? Or do you just design the page layout?
Designer role is all about designing but some job roles require a little amount of knowledge in html/css/java script just to convert a PSD to web page. But I believe Web Designer role should always refer only to designing. If you're applying for a job or a project you better read the job description as sometimes they've mentioned html/css as well.
