What does Web Development involve? Can we refer to Web Designing an Web Development as being the same thing? Can these two terms be used interchangeably?
Short answer, no; and below is why.
Web designing could be compared to the work of an architect, just as an architect would build the plan for your home before you start building it is so also with Web Designing. Web Designers are involved in designing the layout of a website which is comfy referred to as a wireframe or a UX/UI design. They transform the idea of a client into visual designs, working on a model the developer will work on. Basically, web designing oversees everything that involves the creation of a visual image of a website, like the colour and web layout in lay man’s terms. This could include the use of tools such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, Indesign and other UX/UI software applications to design a wireframe for a webpage or the entire website. While Web Design involves what the user sees on any viewing gadget, and being less concerned about the technicality behind the running of the website it is imperative to work hand in hand with a developer with a common objective.
Good Web designers are generally always up-to-date with recent and popular design trends. They make sure they create a website with easy to operate user interface and friendly to the eye of a user.
