Web Design and Development - Eyeweb
The terms “web design” and “web development” are often used interchangeably, yet they’re actually different processes during the creation of a new website. Below is an explanation of how they differ and what they both bring to the table.
The web designer’s job is to focus on the visual side of the website, which is strongly linked to the user experience. A web designer will create the site layout and decide how all of the individual visual elements fit together, which involves using the Adobe suite to full effect.
The web designer will begin by working closely with the client to decide the objectives of the website. This will include various types of content and mapping out how it all fits together using a wireframe. In doing so, they create an information hierarchy that will enable the website to function logically and efficiently, greatly aiding the visitor in finding the right info without any delays or confusion.
There are multiple considerations during this process, such as:
Once all of the above has been decided, planned and created by the web designer, the web developer will use it to build the actual website. This is a highly technical process, as it involves transforming the designs into a fully functional website that’s fast, responsive, adaptable, secure and built around the highest levels of usability and performance.
This phase also includes rigorous testing, as that way you gain the confidence that there won’t be any snags when the website goes live.
