Javascript would also be a good addition to your list and maybe python as well.

I've done some web design in the past and I believe getting familiar with an editor such as dreamweaver and technology such as flash would be of good use to you. Also visit as they have many free tutorial on diverse scripting languages for web dev

since you are thinking of webdesign, you should learn the tools as suggested above (dreamweaver etc.) and you should also learn CSS. Depending on your clients' needs, knowledge of flash might also be helpfull.
