Today we ask ourselves what skills do we need to offer a full web design service. That sounded like a great topic. It turns out it’s a bit slippery this one.

Is a webdesigner like a graphic designer for the web or someone who designs business solutions that are realised on the web? Is the perception of web design changing as fast as the industry?
