Recently, I was tasked with building a website for a very popular, local dessert restaurant. I am offering my services for free so I could use this opportunity to build up a portfolio.
There, however, is a major problem that is holding me back: my design skills are terrible. Yes, I know my CSS, however, my designs are unprofessional looking and low quality. They just don’t have a modern appeal.
I have attempted to build the website 3 times, but have been unhappy with all attempts. I just feel like throwing in the towel and giving up. I have felt like that for a long time.
Who wants to have someone build something thay looks subpar and like crap when they can use website builders themselves with predesigned templates that look better than mine?
I like to build everything from scratch rather than use templates, because I feel it is more of my own original work.
I am good at coding, but terrible at design. I believe the design aspect is definitely holding me back.
This isn’t the 90s or 2000s anymore. Websites have improved in visual design since then.
