Visions of the future #2
We asked readers: how do you think your job will change over the next 10 years?

I see it moving further away from a set environment (2D) and leaning more towards a changing landscape (3D). Barriers will still be pushed but accessibility will play a larger role alongside content [being] seen based on their browsing patterns. As a result, information will be delivered differently and more promptly.

Do web designers even exist today? I can only see further specialisation and role separation as the medium matures. More and more of us will just call ourselves ‘designers’. I’ve tended to avoid the web part for a few years (though it’s the only option sometimes). There will be more and more facets, contexts and devices that need to be catered for, rather than a single flat ‘web’. There already is. Having said that… everything is circular. The tech and tools will change. The challenges (and clients) will be very familiar.

Hopefully not drowned in 'homogeneous soup' of Bootstrap controls and WordPress templates.

Abstraction, abstraction, abstraction. We will be 'gently' invited to write abstracted code, giving the client the possibility to do everything with the same code and a minor cost.
