Should Web Designers Be Regulated?
from the where's-your-web-design-license? dept
One of the reasons that the web caught on was that HTML was so easy that, with barely any training at all, anyone could create a website. Obviously, that has its downsides as well, as many websites are dreadfully designed. As accessibility issues become more important for websites, it has some wondering if web designers should be regulated, where official web designers would need specific certification, and couldn’t use the title “Web Designer” without it. While the HTML purists might like such a thing, it seems like a fairly silly way of going around and improving HTML. A better case could be made for just showing people how bad design harms their business or visitors.
