What should I know to be a successful web designer?
Hi everyone, I am going to be taking a certificate program in Web Design this fall. It will teach how to use HTML, Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash and Dreamweaver. Will these be enough to start a successful career in web design? Or should I have signed up for a program that teaches .php, cold fusion, MySQL etc.? Please note that I have already spent 4 years at university, and have graduated with an honours degree in Art History. I'm taking this program to give my career search some more focus. Thanks!
