New web design lead opportunities for the web industry are on the rise, according to research firm IDC.
The numbers show that web designers across the board are finding new ways to monetize their work, including in mobile, online and video.
IDC’s latest web design trends report shows that developers and designers have the potential to earn an average of $1,700 per hour by 2018, which would be a 30% increase from 2015.
This includes wages for designers who are working in teams of up to 15 people, as well as those who are in their early 30s.
“Web design continues to be an incredibly competitive industry, and as more people work on web design for themselves and their teams, the demand for more people and expertise increases,” said IDC Senior Director of Research Chris O’Brien.
“The rise of design teams in the past few years has been a major factor in the increase in the number of designers who have joined teams of 15 to 30.
This trend is likely to continue, as teams of this size are increasingly common in today’s design industries.”
The most popular types of web design jobs, by type of work, across the web, 2016-18: Designer, web designer, web developer Developer, web development, designer (full list) Designer, web design Developer, Web Development, web site development, web architect Designer, website development (full) Designer(s), web designer(s) (full), website development(s).
Designers, web designers and web developers have a variety of roles in the web design industry, but the most popular jobs for these roles are web designers.
“As designers continue to be a key part of the web landscape, this is a trend that we are seeing as more teams of designers join these jobs,” said O’Reilly, the chief operating officer at Kix, which owns Zagat.
“We see this trend as an important part of our strategy as we continue to add more design jobs across our business to our team.”
IDC also looked at the number and quality of designers employed in different roles, with web designers, developers and web architects making up the most prominent groups.
The most common job in the designer role is Web Developer, while the most common role in the developer role is Developer, which includes web designers as well.
However, the majority of web developers are in the role of Web Developer.
A more popular design role for web designers is Design Engineer, with about a third of these roles occupied by designers.
More design jobs are going to developers, with developers in particular taking the lead in many of the roles.
Design Engineer is also where designers are expected to work most closely with web developers.
“Developers are becoming more and more important in our industry as we scale our teams to meet the growing needs of our customers,” O’Connell said.
The web design workforce continues to grow, with a total of 13.3 million jobs projected to be created in the next five years, up by 9.2% from 2016.
“These trends are likely to grow even more as the number, quality and breadth of web designers continues to increase,” Orenstein said.
“For web designers looking to move into other areas of the business, we suggest the web team as the next step to grow their career and help to create new business opportunities.”
