The length of time it takes to become a Web Designer varies, but short courses and bootcamps have proven that it’s possible to get the skills and portfolio you need to qualify for entry-level Web Designer jobs in as little as three months.

Of course, that would require attending a very intensive, full-time course to learn all the necessary skills required by most Web Designer jobs – things like learning visual design theory, building an understanding user experience (UX), and becoming proficient with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketch, HTML, and CSS. Part-time courses would likely take closer to 30 weeks.

It’s also possible to become a self-taught Web Designer, but it will take longer. If you’re planning to go that route, it could take years to build up the various skills you need while also trying to slowly grow a freelance portfolio before you will have the resume and portfolio necessary to apply for a Web Designer job. Even then, many Web Designer job postings still require formal training or education of some kind.
