Web designing covers everything important regarding the usability and visual aesthetics of the website. That includes color scheme, information flow, layout, and anything else related to the visual aspects of the UI/UX. Some of the common tools distinguishing the web designer from the developer include:
- Graphic design
- Layout/ format
- Logo design
- Placement of CTA
- Mockups, wireframes, and storyboards
- Color palettes
Web design is primarily concerned with what the end-user would see on the computer screen or mobile device. It is not so much about the mechanisms beneath the surface making it work. Web designing brings a digital experience to life by using images, color, typography, and layout.
Web development covers the coding that makes the website work. It has two distinct categories, front end and back end. The front end of web development adheres to the coding needed for deciding how the website will display the designs from the web designer.
It refers to all involved in the process of posting and maintaining a website on the internet. Although many individuals and businesses manage their own web presence, most websites are designed and maintained by professional technology firms. This is because every phase of website development requires highly qualified technical expertise.
