However, there are important differences in the demarcation of these two terms and therefore understanding the difference between website development and web design is important for building a successful website.

What is meant by Web Design

The visual representation of a website is the responsibility of a web designer. The main job of a web designer is to design an appealing website so that the audience gets hooked on it and enjoys navigation through the website. Web designers create the look of the website and the attraction quotient of the website is determined by them. Web designers are experts in colour scheme, template design and layout of the web pages. A good web designer is proficient at graphic design, flash design as well as animations and uses these techniques to enhance the website. Programs like Adobe Photoshop are expertly used to achieve their desired result.

What is meant by Web Development

Web development is referred to as “back-end “of the website whereas website is referred to as “front-end” of the website by people in the industry. The functionality of the website is managed by the development team. The aspect of coding that lies behind the working of a website is not visible on the exterior is addressed by web developers. A web developers job is to technically engineer the website from inception to completion. All aspects that go behind the construction of website falls under the domain of web development, such functions include; what the navigation will be like, what the user’s experience will be like in terms of browsing and the loading time of the page.
