Given all the platforms and script (like Wordpress, joomla, drupal, wix, shopify, magneto, phpBB and many more) you can easily use to create a website yourself, it got me thinking is there still any need for web designers? Is there still need hiring one when you can create almost any type of website you want yourself?

No doubt creating a site is quite "easy" these days with all the platforms available, but truth remains even if you plan to use any of the platforms, you will still take out some time to learn how they work and how to properly use them. Not everybody has that kind of time or the interest or willingness to learn them. Therefore the service of web designers will always be required.

Well on my part, Content management systems are designed in such flexible manners that, u can get accustomed to the configurations and tweaks within few hours and even if you experience problems there are soo many easy tutorials out there, so i dont think there is really a need to hire on

Like you rightly said, you can use the above platforms to create "almost" any type of a website. There comes a time when some custom design or features will be required and in such case, the service of someone who is advanced in web design service will needed.

And like Odira said, not everybody is willing to do this themselves no matter how easy it may seems, for such people, a web designer's service will always be needed.

You have a point but the thing is that no matter how easy using CMS is, not everybody is willing to put their time into it.
