Hey Erl!

Great question! I'd say that if you want to be a freelancer then yes. At least the basics of UI/UX design.

You don't have to build them yourself, you can always hire someone to do that for you and use ready-made templates, but having at least basic knowledge gives you an advantage. You're able to consult the client and reason why specific decisions were made.

If you don't know anything about UX design, you'll always be dependent on others.

// Here I'd also note that learning basics of UX design is not that complex. There are certain patterns that please the eye and make the navigation on a website natural.
