Many people are confused about the differences between web design and web development. What are the roles of a web designer and web developer? Are web design and web development the same?
The answer is simply no. The role of each is completely different from the other. But let’s take a look at the different roles between the web designer and web developer.
What is web design?
Web design is the process of planning, visualizing and arranging the content of websites. Today, website design goes beyond the aesthetic aspects to include the general functionality of the website. Web design also includes web applications, mobile applications, and user interface design. We can say that a web designer is somewhat like an architect in that draws blueprints and all the details of the building before you start building it, a web designer similarly designs your website before a web developer can start developing it.
Web designers play a very challenging role as they need to incorporate into their designs the best user experience, and create a welcoming environment. They also have to change their idea from writing to designing usable interfaces that grab the user’s attention. In addition, web design can have a significant impact on your performance in search engines such as Google.
Some of the main roles of a web designer:
– Professionally use design software such as Adobe Photoshop, Framer or Sketch to create the design and final layout for your website
They have good graphic design and logo design skills.
Web designers need to keep up with the latest design trends. It is also important to maintain the consistency of the design.
What is web development?
Web development is the transformation of designs into a web site for hosting over an Internet. Web developers use programming languages and tools to develop website design and functionality.
In a broader sense, website development includes all actions, updates and processes required to create, maintain, and manage a website to ensure optimum performance, user experience, and speed.
The term “website development” usually refers to the main non-design aspects of creating websites: such as writing programming languages.
Web development may use Content Management Systems (CMS) to facilitate changes in content.
Web developers fall into two subcategories, front-end developers and back-end developers.
Front-end developers are the bridge between web designers and back-end developers, since they have little knowledge of both.
Backend developers are those who control server data and requests. Usually a website requires back-end services if it contains dynamic data. This means, for example, that users submit a form with personal data (such as creating an account), or save an article for your blog page.
In general, if a website requires saving data, and making it accessible at a later stage, this means that it will also need a connection to the database.
Database connections are made possible by a direct connection from the server itself. Thus, the backend developer uses server languages such as PHP or ASP.NET, and writes the database using languages such as SQL or MySQL.
Here are some of the main roles of a web developer
Building the actual interface through which the user interacts with the site. This interface was created by front-end developers using HTML, CSS, and JS languages.
Front-end developers provide tags to back-end developers, so that they can implement a dynamic website, and send all the required data on the server and databases.
Backend developers build the backbone of the site using languages such as PHP and MySQL.
This is exactly how long you have before a user decides whether to stay on your website or not, let alone decide to become a customer.
