Cracking The Difference Between Web Design and Web Development

If you talk about the contemporary society’s madness towards a digitalized platform through which they can reach out to their targeted audience and run their business without any complications, the first thing that pops up in our mind is a well-designed and well-developed website, which represents your business on behalf of you in a digital landscape. Since the evolution of the internet, we have seen that almost all commercial sectors have utilized it. When it comes to website design, it refers to both aesthetic portion and usability and a web designer concentrates on designing the layout and interface of the website and a web-developer is designated to coding.

Millennial consumers rely more and more on websites to know the real deal of the business, before booking and purchasing anything. Take the travel agencies for example. Travelers prefer to book their travel itinerary through an online travel agency that has a well-built and well-developed travel portal. Such portals allow the user to get access to the real-time data of the global travel content, so that they can search, book and purchase as per their requirements. They can even compare the prices of flights or hotels or other transportation and book and purchase the one that is giving them at an affordable price. They can even create their own itinerary as per their choice. But if the user finds the layout or the interface of the website to be complicated and clamorous and if the website is not well-developed and due to which, it takes more time to load a required page, the user will definitely abandon your site to never make a comeback.

So, both web-design and web-development play a pivotal role in garnering the attention of the targeted audience.  But both web-design and web-development is two different projects and as mentioned above already, the main job of a web-designer is to design the interface and layout of the website and the web-developer focuses on coding.

The differences between Web design and web development

Web-designer is specialized in creating design. Web-design is involved with the aesthetic and usability portion of a website- color scheme, layout, information flow, logo, Adobe creative suite (Photoshop, illustrator) or other design software, graphic design, placing call to action button, branding, wireframes, mock-ups and storyboards, color pallets, typography. The job of a web designer is very important as they represent the interface of a website, which the user sees on their computer screen or mobile device. As a whole, a web designer transforms an idea into a visually appealing design and use the layout to build user-experience throughout the whole website.

On the other hand, web developers create programs to bring functionality to the web design and turn it into a live and operative website. Web-developers focus mainly on the coding, server and database.Web developers are split into two sub-categories- front-end developers and back-end developers. Front end developers work as interlink between the web designer and back-end designer and build the interface and provide the layout as an interaction between the back-end developer and user. They use three main languages- HTML, CSS and JavaScript.A web developer builds the actual interface through which the user interacts with the website and receives their searched result. The front-end developers provide the mark-up design to back-end developers, so they can implement a dynamic website and submit all the required data on the server and the database. Web developers may also use versioning tools to keep a history of the previous builds.
