Technologies are becoming more advanced and businesses going to live on technologies. Many clients who are not aware of website design technologies but heard so many things about websites and their technologies used to develop. Because of hear things, they collect some knowledge about website design they made some perceptions or stereotypes which is not true at all. It's a matter of facts that People who does not belong to the community whatever it is have made some stereotypes based on facts that is irrelevant and most of them is false. While few things are saw or listen may be correct at that time in some specific conditions.
Here we list out some most common stereotypes really encountered with our customers and from people around us:
• A Website designer is a Programmer – It is the most common stereotypes of people from our surroundings that think a website designer is a good programmer. Many students are also confused they thought to be a website designer or a developer need to be a good programmer which is not true. Here, I want to clear that, a website designer has some basic knowledge of programming so that they can enable to get through with database in backend.
• Expensive = Good – Generally perceptions about website designer is if service cost is expensive then work would be good and more qualified or they cost cheaper than they are not good or not skilled but it is not true completely. A talented and qualified web developer may be charged low but produce an outstanding work. Here, prediction of quality work is depend on the rated charged by web developer means customer thought that more you pay, the best work we get. But remember neither expensive nor good nor cheaper is less skilled so, choose wisely on their past working experience.
• Lack of Social Skills – The fact is web designers are getting involved in work much deeper so that they have not time to take care of his appearance and to talk with others. Because of work they loved to live alone and this will lead them to introvert personality and their appearance would be disappointing others wearing jeans, t-shirts, messy hair and spectacles. However, we live in the world where your appearance says a lot to others, web designers need to careful about his image.
• Male Designers are better – Female web designers are not considered as good as male web designers. The concepts behind that is they are always tend to keep away from machines and also we thought that females are not capable in grasping the technologies as fast as males. But, with the time female web designers are also leaving their footprint to the industry as a one of the best web designer but still they are few in counting. Personally I barely saw a woman in the web design industry while I worked in three different companies.
