    Hey Guys,

    Just curious how and why you started web design.

    For me, I started young, age 11. I was addicted to this game and decided to make a fan page for it. The game was MSN Ants, if anyone remembers that I'll give them a cookie. I learned everything from then on, everything on my own, everything online. It's pretty cool to gain a skill that way. It's been an awesome experience.

    Maybe because I really like designing not only website but also things around me, but back then I realized I must choose one to be my career. And then I choose web designing.

    I started very young too. I think its normaly for our "generation" which lives with the internet since we can walk (okay more or less ;) ) that at some point we are interested in doing our own things. No important if it was for some webcommunity, a game or something similiar. I think the only difference is that their are creative people which starts over with that and continue and other people which love the internet too but which have other talents.

    I start web designing when I found out about Html, when I was in college and the professors taught us about this and I found this very interesting so, I started to study more about it and create my own page using html codes, but now, technologies are higher, I am using dreamweaver.

    Sculture wasnt my thing in school :) but I love traditional painting. I think it could be very helpful for web- or graphicdesigners if you have some practice with traditional art too

    I've know a person like you who just played online and then realize he will be a web designer. Me, I started designing my site when I learned the old fashion html, it is really interesting and I'm loving it.

    I started web designing as a young teen because I wanted a chat room. But the chat website required that I had a website so I could embed their java applet. So I joined geocities when it first started (when it pretty much relied on html) and then just got better from there!

    I started webdesign in 2009 when I was unemployed. With no start up money to speak of other than enough to pay for one year hosting (about $50) I made my own site from scratch. So I started web design because if you have no money and are willing to work hard web design is the only way you can have a global audience for free. As Google says you create the content and they will monetize it for you with adwords.

    I went to school for acting, worked professionally for about 5 years. Fell out of love for the business. In the interim I was working with a comedy group and I was the most tech savvy member of the bunch, so I took on the marketing materials responsibilities.

    I soon found those sessions far more stimulating than performing.

    then I could not stop thinking of websites.

    Web Designing is indeed a good career! Especially at this point in our era that 'computer' is really important!

    We had to take General Information technology as a subject when I was schooling. I got highest marks in that subject then I realized that the field works well for me and then I went for some private classes, now I graduated with IT degree. This is how I start my website designing journey.

    My elder sister is a professional web designer, I used to sit with her when she was doing websites at home and I liked the way she designs then I thought of going for classes since I have a good creative mind than my sister. This is how I started web designing.

    My step dad taught me some html & Javascript when I was 10, I then came back to it 9 years later as I needed to do design some pages on my company's intranet.

    4 years later I am now working for myself designing and developing a whole range of different sites... I would not swap this job for anything!

    It was in my second year of high school. We were required to take basic keyboarding and I loved the teacher even if the course work was a bit boring. So I ended up taking web design with her which I really enjoyed and it kept going from there.

    I started in 2005. I wanted my own website and used GeoCities' PageBuilder. Developed a stout dislike for website builders and taught myself HTML. I fell in love with coding and recently started college to get the necessary pieces of paper that'll let me make a career of it.
