I am a newcomer to the web/graphic design field, but I find that I can draw from my many years working in the building industry. Listening and understanding what the client wants and needs and putting it into something tangible is top priority in both fields. Making sure the foundation and all of the parts and pieces you don't see are in place and done right is just as important in web design as it is in building a house. If the mechanics don't work, a website is useless, even if it looks good on the outside. My biggest compliments from clients in the past was that I designed and built exactly what they had in their heads. My hope is that I will be able to do the same thing in digital design.
