In classical terms, design describes the visual appearance of a website. Traditional approach involves contrast, coloring, balance, emphasis, rhythm, style of graphical elements (lines, shapes, texture, color and direction), use of icons, background textures and general atmosphere of overall website design. All these elements are combined with the fundamental principles of design in order to create a superb result that meets the goals set for the website.
Web developers, sometimes called programmers, take the design created by Web Designers and build a fully functioning website. To put it simply,
think of the design as a non-interactive “picture” of a website.
Developers take that design and break it up into it’s components. They then either use just HTML or a more dynamic approach incorporating programming languages such as PHP to develop the various website pages. More advanced web developers may choose to utilize a Content Management System (CMS) like WordPress in order to streamline development and allow clients an easy way to maintain and update their website.
Web developers may convert a static layout designed by Web Designers into a dynamic website by using image and content sliders, active states for links and buttons, and other interactive elements. In essence, Web Design refers to both the aesthetic portion of the website and it’s usability.
Web Designers use various design programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver or After Effects to create the layout and other visual elements of the website.
