Question about being a female Graphic/Web designer?
I have been going back and forth with wanting to be a graphic designer and web designer. I know it's mostly a male dominated area, but will being a woman freelance designer be a problem for me when searching for new clients? Most business who want a website are usually run by men and I just wasn't sure if a man would care or not if a women was building their website or designing a logo. What do you think?

I think in today's society it does not really matter if you are male or female when it comes to graphics design. if you have the talent that is what matters. I know quite a few female graphics artists that work in print shops and there are more of them than there are guys at those shops, the guys mostly run the presses... More

I don't know where you got the idea that most graphic designers are men. I'd guess the opposite. People don't care if you're male or female if you can produce results.

In the internet sector you rarely actually meet a client, though if you do your job well, are able to provide the goods to a standard your client expected. Then you can succeed, you will get one or two people refusing to take you on - but not any more than men not allowed to become hairdressers ;)

I used to do computer support for quite a few design firms and there were many men and women graphic designers. Web programming (not necessarily design) seems to be dominated by men but I think it is a breath of fresh air to see a women interested in it.

I'm a web designer and worked for men and I've never run into problems, I often install and design sites for both women and men and as long as they are happy with the end result, the fact I'm a woman never comes into it.
