Web design vs. web development and web designer vs. web developer

As you can see on our website, we offer web design and web development services which is not the usual offer. Most of the agencies out there offer web design services or web development services, but not altogether.

What’s the explanation? We’ll try and figure it out in today’s post.

What is web design and what does a web designer do?

Web design is a general term and encompasses multiple skills and techniques used in the digital production and maintenance of a website. Among these skills and techniques, one can mention web graphic design, user interface (UI) and user  experience (UX), but also On-page initial SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

So, if you ask a web designer to design you a website, he or she should give you an offer which should comprise all mentioned above.

A professional web designer will not only web graphic design your website, but will also take care of your UI, UX, initial on-page SEO and so much more.

Web designing means not only drawing a beautiful website, but professionally create an online presence for your client. Nowadays, an online presence doesn’t mean only a beautiful picture placed somewhere on web, but a reachable and a lead-generation optimized one. This is why we always recommend everybody to use an SEO specialist while web designing – the structure of the whole project must take into consideration all the aspects regarding the way that website will be visible and reachable for the search engines and by the potential clients.

What is web development and what does a web developer do?

Web development is a broader term and it goes from web designing a particular web site up to the development of a particular web application or web portal.

The fact is, for you to better understand it, the web designer is more involved with the front end while the web developer is dealing with the back end of a particular project. While the web designer will usually use a CMS (Content Management System) such as WordPress or Joomla to finalize a certain project, a web developer will use its coding knowledge, such as PHP, Java, JavaScript or other programming languages in order to make your digital project look and feel exactly the way you wanted it to be.

Ask a web designer to change something to the coding structure of a digital project and he will call a web developer. Ask a web developer to improve the UX and UI of a digital project and he will call a web designer.

This is why we, here at TUYA Digital, work by closely combine the knowledge of web designing with the knowledge of web developing, together. This is why our digital projects look neat and beautiful, but also benefit from the initial on-page SEO set-up which will tell Google of your presence online from the very first day.

Why web design & web development?

We prefer offering web design along with web development services exactly because we care about our clients and about their needs – it is normal for a client to desire something and to ask for it to be accomplished. A client doesn’t care and doesn’t need to care about different techniques or about the skills of a web designer compared to the skills of a web developer.

A client will request for a certain project to be completed and here is why we prefer working both with a designer and a web developer at the same time.

On top of that, while designing a particular website, we also think about SEO optimizing the whole structure. That’s why a SEO specialist is involved from the very beginning, so he or she can tell his or her opinion on the structure of the project, on how different pages should link and on how we have to plan our future optimization of the website after finishing it.
