I believe that the number of web design jobs has hastily grown. A few boxes and buttons with some pretty pictures gave a chance for people with little artistic talent to make something meaningful & beautiful. However unimpressive that may sound, I’ve found something miraculous about it. Web design is the approachable first stepping stone to a design career. New talents become uncovered thereafter that will shape a person. If not for web design, I wouldn't have learned so much about layout design, iconography and typography, which then lead me to hand lettering and illustration.
