Some technological advances are rapid and others are slower to take shape. Imagine even fifty years ago that the job title of ‘web designer’ would have been baffling, especially twenty-one years before the world wide web was invented. Even twenty-one years later, a ‘website designer’ wasn’t a job role either. It wasn’t until the early 2000s that design, typography, graphics, and the need for ‘dynamic’ websites took off. It’s a relatively short history, but look how ubiquitous it is now. Even still, web design is further complicated by the need not only for good ‘design’ but for understanding voice search, SEO, backlinks, schema, and much, much more.
