Website Design and Development is a term that describes the process of creating websites. As the name suggests; it consists of two major parts i.e. Web Design and Web Development.
Web design determines the appearance and looks of a website, while web development determines how it functions and processes.
Design vs. front-end development vs. back-end development
What the user sees takes place in a browser and involves the design and front-end development. Design defines a website’s colors, layout, font, and images—all the stuff that goes into a website’s branding and usability—and requires tools like Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks, and Sketch.
Some web designers code and some front-end developers design. Some web designers don’t touch a piece of code. And some front-end web developers stick to coding and nothing else.
A website needs a back end to store and organize all the data that comes through the front end. So if a user buys something or fills out a form, they’re entering information into an application on the front end of the website. And that information is stored in a database that lives on a server.
Elements of Web Design
Web Designers are constantly looking forward to helping their users in solving problems. A Website helps the user to surf through the internet and they can go where they want to go. A Website must be attractive, eye-catching, and easy to explore by the user; so that people visit and interact with the website over and over again.
Layout is a pattern or framework that defines a website’s structure. It has the role of structuring the information present on a site both for the website’s owner and for users. It provides clear paths for navigation within web pages and puts agency websites will prioritizing the big picture of their models, while an editorial site will prioritize text and letters spacing.
The Visual Hierarchy of a 2D display (webpage, graphic, print, etc.) refers to the organization of the design elements on the page so that the eye is guided to consume each design element in the order of intended importance. Visual hierarchy can be created using: color and contrast.
Website Navigation, as the name suggests, is a way of showing the importance and relevance of pages, content, and information on a website. It is a way that helps users or visitors to find content that they want to see. It is simply a way of navigating pages, content, and information on websites using the internet.
Color gives a website personality, makes it stand out, and shows the user how to take action. The color palette might be determined by a brand’s existing identity or by the content of a website (like how this plant website uses hues of green). A consistent color palette helps give order to a website.
Web graphics are visual representations used on a Web site to enhance or enable the representation of an idea or feeling, in order to reach the Web site user.
Website speed, or website performance, refers to how quickly a browser is able to load fully functional web pages from a given site. Poorly performing sites that render slowly in a browser can drive users away. Conversely, sites that load quickly will typically receive more traffic and have better conversion rates.
Web accessibility means that websites, tools, and technologies are designed and developed so that people with disabilities can use them. More specifically, people can: perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the Web. contribute to the Web.
