Hi, my name is Roy Quilor. That picture is so cringey and cool, at the same time (don't tell my wife).
I studied Multimedia, which was focused on basic coding. But I also loved design.
But when trying to get freelance work or a job, I got zero responses. Because you gotta show some work, as the proof is in the pudding.
I'm gonna tell you that if:
To learn is a gift, so keep on grinding.
You don't think you can do design and code? You 100% can do it, but you have to put in the time.
The way I work is to make stuff or learn by doing on a project basis to make things more fun which you can show as portfolio. That's how I did it.
Making stuff and iterating the design as you go along is a good process.
If you struggle with perfection or analysis paralysis, just start simple.
No matter what level you are or what you are going through, if you want to learn design, become a web designer or apply the skill to your business, then stick around.
You can learn design, HTML and CSS at the same time. I'm just an average guy, who loves design with a curious mind on computers.
My designs and code are not the greatest, but the point is, you don't have to be. A good grasp of the basics and knowing how to get the job done will get you further than you think.
Remember, it's about the journey, not just the destination.
