This is very important and will make you work faster. You have to learn how to improve on your creativity because if you want your work to be unique, you can’t just copy someone’s job.

Also you can get free banner templates online and then use them to create your banners.
As a professional website designer, you should visit other people’s site and see their creativity, you should not to copy them, but learn one or two technique from them. Also you should always save pictures, but you can get a free picture tool from Google, it is called Google images, with this tool you can search for pictures on any niche by typing the niche or keyword on the search box provided. You will be able to download good pictures from the Google Images search result. You can also add some of these pictures to your website or banner.
Try to know how to blend colors properly, if your website color does not blend, you can’t go anywhere with it. Also note that when ever you are designing a website with adverts, the adverts must blend with the website content. Make the website heading and advert heading the same color, also make your advert text and your content text the same color and your advert links should be blue. To improve on your Website design skill, you will have to sign up with some freelance websites and then take up jobs, do not over price the jobs, even if you are making so little from it, just know that you are using it to improve on your skill.
If you are an internet marketer, your creativity will help you make more money from your websites. Also you will get more jobs if you are a freelancer and this time you will be paid well. So after everything, you can now see that as a website designer you have to be creative and also if you don’t practice you can never improve, put your knowledge to work, as continuous practice leads to perfection. If you want to start a business, create the site yourself and as time goes on, you can develop the site until it becomes professional. This is how most website designers started.
