Even though the term web designer and developer are used interchangeably, because both assist in building websites, their areas of involvement are different. Developers focus on code structure using complex languages, while designers concentrate on structuring the site in a more visually creative manner.

What is a web designer?
To put it in a nutshell, the job of web designers is to make the site look interesting to users via compelling images, videos, animation, etc. Code like HTML and CSS are used to create designs. There are various types of designers:

• User Interface (UI) – They work on improving how users interact with website interface. They make the site more enjoyable and convenient to navigate.
• Visual – This is a blend of UX and UI creative and coding skills are used, while design issues are resolved as well. They define the uniqueness of a brand.

What is web developer?

A web developer works on the framework of a website by using software like Javascript and JQuery – it is just like building a foundation. There are categories of developers such as:
• Back-end – It involves designing core structure with complex software languages like Java, SQL and C#. Coding is done on web servers and databases, not on the browser. Bugs are fixed by them as well.
• Front-end – These designers use HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for client-side development. They work on things the user can see like client lead forms.
• Full stack – They are involved across multiple stacks including both front and back end. Their expertise includes all areas of web development.

Do you need a web designer or a web developer?

The answer depends on what kind of website related work you have to get done. For instance, designing a new homepage layout or editing videos and photos is the job of a web designer, while building new contract forms or creating mobile apps is when you require web developers.
But if you are creating a website from ground zero, you need to hire a designer and developer. The latter creates a solid platform for further growth in future, while the former makes it more aesthetically appealing for users so they visit the website and spend significant time on it. It is advisable to approach an agency that offers services of both designers and developers.

Ask any other person what is Web Design and the immediate apparent answer would be – the design and construction of a website. Going deeper, Web Design is the intricate skill of crafting web content that is not only aesthetically appealling, user-friendly, with the ability to generate traffic and even induce users to purchase. A website is made up of a collection of electronic documents and applications that resides on web servers and consists of content and interactive interfaces.

Web content can be altered using HTML, Cassading Style Sheets (CSS) Languages, Content Management System (CMS) and many other methods. A good website is one which is dynamic and there is full control over website content as and when necessary.

In today’s day and age, effective communication goes far beyond just pen and paper.
