Web Design and DevelopmentWebdesign and development
Where is the distinction between web design and web development?
In my early phases of web development education, I recall that I was often puzzled about the difference between design and development. Who are the Web designers? Can you tell me what web design is all about? Is web design and web development identical? However, let's take a look at the different parts and methodologies of both a web design engineer and a web development engineer.
Consider webmasters as those who turn an idea captured in a storyline into a visual design, and use their layouts to help drive the overall site visitor Experience. You design the look and feel of the website. And because an architect would make a blueprint of your home before he starts construction, a web design engineer would also design the layouts of your website before a web design engineer can begin development.
There is a tricky and often underestimated web designer part. They must design to incorporate the best possible usability experiences and provide an inviting setting for the users. You need to turn an initial concept of typing into a useful design and intuitive interfaces that attract the user's interest. No website can be considered great unless a correct design policy has been followed in the early phases of the design work.
Today, web design professionals are evaluated at the same levels as web development professionals, because without a great usability experiance, development cannot really be valued by the users. They have developed a number of strategies for themselves. Not only do you build a flawless website immediately after you' ve read or thought about the specification or functionality you need.
First you would imagine the drafts in your mind rough and begin with a drawing or design of the design. Beginning with the drawing over wiredrames, mock-ups up to the ultimate design. Professionals web designer the entire site in design building component, with a pinpointed layouts of all web pages, symbols, types and other complicated functions.
Some of the major tasks of a web design engineer are these: Do you have a good sense of usability to be able to find the easiest possible way to achieve the required functionality? These include the website's layouts, button, image and general website size. Website creators need to keep abreast of the latest design fashions.
It is also important to maintain the design coherence made known by other web giants like Google and Facebook. Website designer must also consider the website brand, the color palette to be used, and the website type and legibility. Consider web developer as the ones who turn the design into a web site.
Weavers use web programming language and web development tool to design and create the website design and function. Note that webmasters are further divided into two subcategories: frontend and backend. As I see frontend development as the link between web design and backend development, a little bit of knowing about both would allow a frontend designer to create a fully functional website.
Starting from the master design lay-out to the insertion of pictures, the application of different typographic styles and typefaces, the implementation of motion graphics, the fluency of different pages, forms and more. Backend designers are those who monitor your servers' information and requirements. Normally, a website needs backend service if it contains dynamical information. So a backend programmer then uses PHP or ASP servers.
NET and write data base query using language like SQL or MySQL. These are some of the leading parts of a web developer: Structure of the real surface through which a website visitor can interact with the website. Frontend programmers create this frontend using HTML, JS and JS. Frontend designers can use style pre-processors, Java script library and framework to speed up the development progress (see my earlier article).
Frontend designers make the mark-up design available to backend designers so that they can deploy a vibrant website and transfer all necessary information to the servers and database. Backend programmers build the website's spine with PHP and MySQL supported programming languages. What's more, the backend is made up of a number of different language versions. Front-end and back-end designers can use the same development environment or IDEs (Integrated Development Environment).
This is a set of useful utilities that you can use to program and construct the website layout. Web development engineers can also use release notes to get a historical record of past builds. How does a full-stack designer work? Full stacks are those who have good skills in all of the above development areas.
That means that if you are a full-stack designer, you should be able to create a website from the ground up, from viewing a design, through building the design's markup, to editing back-end operations and querying databases. Normally, a full-stack designer also has a working understanding of design and usage experiences.
To be a full-stack designer doesn't mean you have to be an authority on all of your own language skills. It is already difficult to become an authority or a pro for only one of the tongues. It is always an advantage to have a good grasp of everything on the web, but I suggest you stay with the one you love the most and concentrate on becoming an authority on it.
As soon as you are familiar with the development of the frontend or backend, you can spend more of your free energy on those areas that need more work. Hopefully you now have a better grasp of the differences between the role of web developer and web designer. Remember that both have important parts and the web would not have existed without one or the other.
In my own personal wisdom, nothing will be simpler than the other. My full-time work as a frontend designer and the regular interaction with frontend and backend artists has shown me that all the different parts we've just talked about have their own specialities in one way or another.
