What is Web Design & Web Development

Today we wanted to talk to you about difference between Web Design and Web Development.

Lets get into details on each of these things.

Web development

Think about web developers as those who turn the designs into a website. Web developers uses web technology, programming and software tools to develop the design and functionality of website. Notice, that web developers are further split into two sub-categories; front-end, and back-end developer. I see front-end developer as the connection between both web designers and back-end developers, as having a little knowledge of both, would allow a front-end developer to build a fully working site. A front-end developer is the one who builds the interface, and provides the layout as the interaction between the back-end of the site and the user.

Web design

Think about web designers as those who transform an idea into a visually design, and use their layout to build the user experience throughout the whole site. They design the website look and feel. As an architect would create a plan of your house prior to start building it, similarly a web designer would model the layout of your site before a web developer can start developing it.
