What skillset do you need to freelance?

    As far as I am concerned to be a freelance web designer you need to be able to create good graphics for your customers along with programming it.

    When I finally decided to settle down and apply for a permanent job in design studio I got an answer that if you are good with graphic design you can't be good in web programming. I find this argument really weak to be honest...

    What do you think?
     
  2. I'd say practise makes perfect with both, even a lot of creativity people have just comes from inspiration.

    I try to do everything myself and I'd say that I am at least on my way to doing both well.

    Exactly!

    I applied for a job in a local web design studio and to be honest most of their designs I can do within a week or less, designing the graphics with my eyes closed and writing the code with my left foot...

    What they said to me was that if I am good at coding I can't be good at graphic design... my answer to it was that I absolutely don't agree with that If you work as a freelancer you need to be good at both otherwise your customers will go away from you and pick someone else who does the stuff better...
