GRAPHIC DESIGNER VS. WEB DESIGNER

Well we all know that a graphic designer is much different than a web designer.  But is one better than the other.  In my opinion, no.  I have been a graphic designer for over 8 years now and love it.  There was a time that graphics was all I wanted to do.  It is not the case anymore. Life changes, you change and the world changes.  The printing industry along with graphic design is slowing down.  Guess what is striving to the top, you guessed it, web design.

So for me I had to change and step out of my comfort zone and learn something new “web design” which is much harder and a lot different thought process than graphics than I thought.   Now as a graphic and web designer I see both sides.  The two professions are just different not better than one another.

Their was a time when companies needed two people for graphic and web. Now with this economy they want one to be able to do both and it’s working.  Hints why I am back in school for web design.  I will say that you get a better salary with web design though.  lol

What do you all think about this? Are you a web guy a graphic guy or both?
