i agree creativity is a must even in something as logical as web development, thinking out the box has always served me well. What i am asking though is where are you guys heading on your personal journeys , are you looking to start a design agency , a advertising agency or get hired as a front end developer by some company that sort of thing is what i was asking about,
Web designers use their innovative abilities and technical skills to design and construct user-friendly, visually pleasing sites. The project demands a mix of artistic ability, technical expertise, business savvy and people skills.
In short, it is very creative work and there are lots of career growth for a passionate web designer.

I've been in the web design world since 1994 - yes, the internet existed back then.
There's a lot of things that have changed, but there's a lot that has stayed the same. The big item that really can't go out of style is UX/UI (User Experience / User Interface.
No matter the changes that happen online with various different programming languages, new versions of HTML, new OOP processes etc, the User Interface, and a solid grasp of how it works, is something that is always in demand.
With the various WYSIWYG software on the market to build a website, and the millions of people that call themselves web designers, there's no shortage of finding someone to put something together. Finding someone that is technically proficient however can be a challenge, as WYSIWYG is not the end of the road, merely the starting point. Optimizing it and tweaking it is where the money hides.
