“Your website is your best Sales Pitch”
Web design and development are always used synonymously but design and development are two separate and important aspects of website building.
Web design is often underrated. Designs integrate the best user experience possible and create a welcoming environment for the user. They change an idea from writing, into a usable design and interface that catches the user’s attention. Websites need to reflect the culture, the ideal and the ideal of a company. It’s how many customers associate the brand.
‘Web designers transform an idea into a captivating visual and use their layout to build the website.’
They design the website’s look and feel. A web designer would model the layout of your website before a web developer can start developing it. Web designers may use several basic design principles to achieve an aesthetically pleasing layout which also offers excellent user experience.
Web developers on the other hand use web languages and software tools to develop the design and functionality of a website.
- Front-end developers – Front end developers design layout, insert images, apply different types of typography and implement animations, the flow of different pages, form interfaces, and more.
- Back-end developers – Back-end developers are those who control the server data and requests.
In essence, web design refers to both the aesthetic portion of the website and it’s usability. Web designers use various design programs to create the layout and other visual elements of the website. Web Development, on the other hand, takes website design and actually makes a functioning website by implementing various computer languages.
Small and medium – sized companies looking to design a website or a re-design the existing one may be confused by the blurred lines surrounding the terms “Web Design” and “Web Development.” Hopefully, this article will help clear up the common misconception that design and development are one and the same.
