Example of how a web designer might start building a web page

Web design is a profession where a person designs a web page or a web site.[1] The web page can have graphics, music, animations, and many other things on it. Some web design is done for businesses, and some is done for individual people. Some web designs are used a lot and have standard templates that are free for people to use.

People who design web pages are called web designers.[1] Web designers use HTML or Dynamic HTML (DHTML), Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), JavaScript, and many other technologies to make their pages.[2] Web designers can make their pages on the Internet using website building software, or offline on their computer. Web designers in the United States of America can earn between $31,650 and $69,510 a year, with a median salary of $46,327.[3]
