Web Development FAQ

home > q & a > web development faq

When it comes to Web Development it's important to know that it differs from Web Design, as the two terms “web design” and “web development” are often used loosely, but they really do have two different meanings. So here we try to explain the difference between web development and web design as well as / web developers and web designers.

If you're looking for someone to build your website, you need to know the difference!

What is Web Development?

Web development is the process for building the back-end of your website, the programming and interactions on the pages displayed in your web browser. A web developer focuses on how a site works and how web users interact with your information (also see User Experience and User Interface Design which is often also thrown into the realm of web development but is a specialised task in its own in some cases). Web developers will use a wide range of scripting, programming languages and knowledge to complete the building of a website.

What is Web Design?

Web design is the "customer-facing" / "shop-front" / "window" of your website. A web designer focuses on how a website looks and how your information is presented to the user. Good web designers will be able to combine varios design principles, graphic design software, trends and a client's brand to create a site that looks great.
