Good graphic design stems from an understanding of page design, like you see in a magazine. If you break down the elements that make up website design, such as color palettes and mobile graphics, you'll end up with commercial art that works well. Page layout and images can be restricted at first, then expanded as your Photoshop skill-set grows. A drop-down menu will make it easy for your audience to navigate your pages. Some of the design skills for making websites do not change much over time, but other critical areas such as market research and search engine optimization, are constantly evolving as new design tools become available.

Success is governed by several factors, including visitor traffic and sales conversions. How many of the right people can you attract to your site, and how many of those people can you persuade to take action? Not only can you practice making your own websites, but you may find part-time employment designing websites for small businesses. Because a strong portfolio is often the deciding factor among potential job candidates, students interested in graphic design should take basic courses in website design, computer graphics, interior design, and sketching.
