5. Marketing

Once again, marketing comes into play here. Chime in.

    I would venture to say that Creativity is somewhat subjective. Some new web designers who come up with great designs wouldn't call themselves creative.

    Thoughts?

    The ability to translate a clients "vision" into a working thing.

    I would place "Listening" as the number one skill a web designer should have.

      Agreed to some extent, but you probably didn't work with elderly clients.
