Re: graphic design freelance web development
It seems to me that development and design are very different. Design gets me excited. Development I'm just beginning on, and although interesting, it's like trying to build a house with a million, intricately placed, toothpicks. Does seem like one needs to learn both so I'm stubbornly going to keep at it.
Too bad there isn't a place for someone to just make graphics to spec that developers can then use.
To my mind, development is the key for you. Design will make you better but without development - there is nothing to design.
