Video: What it's Really Like to be a Web Designer

Here's an entertaining ad that pokes fun at us creative types. But it's the web designer segment (0:44) that most entertains.

When I grow up I want to be a web designer. A freak. Use terms nobody understands. And convince myself I'm no longer the geek I was in high school.

brilliant ;)

I think they meant to say web developer, not designer. There is a difference. I'm a developer and I can relate to that.

Ed – maybe so!

Of course, the practice of using terms nobody understands is not limited to our professions — just look at all the varieties of Bullshit Bingo that exist.

On the other hand, tech folks do tend to be worse than most for this…

Definitely fun to watch. Insightful.

I think the term web designer/developer is used in the same context a lot of the time. I am a designer and a developer and know very few designers (still working today) that dont do both. If you cant code it, you cant really design it.
