What is Web Design?
Web design is the process of designing a website. A web designer will consider the layout, navigation, content "calls to action", and overall user interface before actually making it available on the internet. Web design is typically confused with web development, which is the process of creating a website by putting together the underlying code.
What is Web Development?
Web development is the process of developing a website and its underlying technology. It involves different aspects such as: content development, graphic design, code implementation and maintenance.
Key elements of website development
Website development is the process of designing, coding, and managing websites. This includes everything from creating a user-friendly design to hosting the site. There are many key elements that go into website development, including how it's designed, who's designing it, and more.
Website design vs. web development
Website design and web development are two different things. Website design is the creative process of conveying a message and how it should be presented. Web development is more technical - it focuses on building websites that are optimised for search engines, get good rankings on major search engines, are mobile friendly, etc.
All website designs by Hayley at Hays Den are developed by Arbtalk Media so you can be sure that your website looks great on the front end and is fully optimised on the back end.
The Role of the Web Designer in Website Development
Web designers are responsible for developing the interface. This includes things like colors, fonts, images, layouts, and graphics. They design the website to be both aesthetically pleasing to the viewer and easy to use for the site owner. Web developers are responsible for programming code that will run on a server that supports the website. This code typically sits behind an interface designed by a web designer.
Tools used in Website Design and Development
A website is a collection of various elements that work together to create an interactive experience for the user. To build a site from scratch, you'll need a few tools that will allow you to design and program your ideas. Unless you're working with a CMS, you'll need a little more development knowledge too.
Some of the most common website design tools are Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, and Wordpress.
Reasons why you may need a new website?
There are many reasons why a business may need a new website. Your existing website may not be producing the traffic you need to build your online presence or you may be getting the website traffic but are not getting the conversions you need to grow your business. Maybe your business is in need of a rebrand? Or you're a start up business ready to put your brand on the map. Whatever the reason may be for getting a new website, Hays Den can help.
How to get started
If you are not 100% sure how to start your website design, don't worry. There are some really easy things you can do that will make a big difference.
First and foremost, you need to establish what your business is all about, the products you have or the services you offer. Make note of any information you would like to include on your website such as your company details, history or accreditations. These will form the basis of your website navigation and any sub pages that you would like to include. We can help you build up the content of your website so that your website is easy to navigate and is SEO friendly.
Next, find a domain name for your site. Try doing some research to see what is available by searching on Google or another search engine. Once you have selected your domain name, decide on a hosting service for your site. This is where users can visit your site on the internet and access all of its content. Lastly, decide on a layout-template so that you can create some pages to populate with information for your new site.
