There is a big difference between web design and graphic design. People are under the false impression that anyone can design a web site. That's not true, not a good one anyway. Website design has to do with programming. ( A good web designer will learn how to hard code a site in a specific language. You should do research on that.) A web designer also needs to learn how to design and implement databases along with login (hard coded) pages and learn how to design or add ecommerce apps. A graphic designer deals strictly with graphics or images. There are many graphic programs to learn, most employers prefer adobe photoshop or InDesign. Usually a graphic designer works with a web designer to make a website.
