Web design is the process of creating websites. It encompasses several different aspects, including web page layout, content production, and graphic design. While the terms web design and web development are often used interchangeably, web design is technically a subset of the broader category of web development.
Among web professionals, “web development” usually refers to the main non-design aspects of building web sites: writing markup and coding. Most recently Web development has come to mean the creation of content management systems or CMS. These CMS can be made from scratch, proprietary or open source. In broad terms, the CMS acts as middleware between the database and the user through the browser. A principle benefit of a CMS is that it allows non-technical people to make changes to their website without having technical knowledge.
Web Page Layout
Web page layout is the part of graphic design that organizes the arrangement of visual elements on a page. It involves organizational principles of composition to achieve specific communication objectives.
Content production refers to the process of developing and creating visual or written assets, such as videos, eBooks, blog posts, whitepapers, or infographics. It can also refer to the maintenance of websites or social media accounts.
Graphic design is the process of visual communication and problem-solving through typography, illustration, and photography. The use of typography, visual arts and page layouts create visual compositions that combine symbols, images or text to communicate an idea or message. For example, corporate graphic design may include creating logos, branding including signage and packaging. An editorial graphic design may include creating images for magazines or books.
Technical writing is any written form of writing or drafting technical communication used in a variety of technical and occupational fields.
