Website Design

Some common skills and tools that distinguish the web designer from the web developer are:

  1. Adobe Creative Suite e.g Photoshop, Illustrator or any other design software
  2. Graphic design
  3. Logo design
  4. Layout/format
  5. Placing call_to_action buttons
  6. Branding
  7. Wireframes, mock-ups, and storyboards
  8. Color palettes
  9. Typography

Web design is concerned with what the user actually sees on their computer screen or mobile device, and less so about the mechanisms beneath the surface that make it all work. Through the use of color, images, typography and layout, they bring a digital experience to life.

Web designers mainly work with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript which helps to be able to create living mock ups of a website. Web designers also often work with templating services like WordPress or Joomla!, which allow you to create websites using themes and widgets without writing a single line of code.

The Meaning Of Web Development

Web development governs all the code that makes a website tick or look more real. It can be split into two categories the front_end and the back_end. The front_end or client_side of an application is the code responsible for determining how the website will actually display the designs written by a designer. The back_end or server_side of an application is responsible for managing data within the database and serving that data to the front_end to be displayed.

As you may have guessed, it’s the front_end developer’s job tends to share the most overlap with the web designer. Some common skills and / or tools traditionally viewed as unique to the front_end developer are listed below:

  1. HTML/CSS/JavaScript
  2. CSS preprocessors (i.e., LESS or Sass)
  3. Frameworks (i.e., AngularJS, ReactJS, Ember)
  4. Libraries (i.e., jQuery)
  5. Git and GitHub

Front_end web developers don’t usually create mock-ups, select typography, or pick color palettes___these are usually provided by the designer. It’s the developer’s job to bring those mock-ups to life.

Understanding what the designer wants requires some knowledge of best practices in UI/UX design, so that the developer is able to choose the right technology to deliver the desired look and feel and experience in the final product ie The end product of both the design and development of a Website.
