If you are being asked this question- tell me the difference between the website developer and designer? Your answer will be a big "NO". It is really a true fact that half of the people around us do not know what the difference between the website designing and developing is. In the earlier days, people used to say that website designers design the site, whereas the developers do the functions of coding.

But, nowadays, this question sounds like little complicated. It will be very difficult to find the web designer who did not know anything about the HTML and CSS, and you will not look far for the web developer who can use the storyboard. If we are speaking strictly about the concepts of website designing and developing, there is a slight distinction. Nowadays, most of the reputed digital marketing companies of various locations like to hire web developers and designers separately. For example- talking about the businesses located in South Africa, they hire professionals who excel in both web development and website design from Cape Town.

If you really want to know the difference, then have a look at the rules of both designing and developing.

What Is Website Designing?

Web designing mainly governs everything, involving the visual aesthetics and also the usability of the website like the color, layout, scheme, information flow and also each and every detail that are related to the visual aspects of the UI/UX. Some of the most common techniques and tools that mainly differentiate a website designer to a developer are-

1. Typography

2. Layout/formatting

3. Wireframes, storyboards, and mock-ups

4. Graphic designing

5. Color patterns

6. Placing call-to-action buttons

Web design is mainly concerned with the user's experiences when he sees the computer screen or the mobile device and very less regarding the layout the mechanisms that lie beneath. With the usage of color, layout, topography, and images; the designers bring experience to the real life. Thus, it is said that web designers remain familiar to the HTML, Javascript, and CSS. They help the designers to create living mock-ups of the website apps. The website designers work with the templates like the Wordpress and Joomla. These allow the website designers to create websites by the use of themes and widgets without writing a single code.

What Is Website Development?

This process mainly governs all the codes that make a website to tick. It is divided into two categories- front and back end. The front-end of the application is also known as the client side, is the code that is responsible for determining how the site will be displayed. The back-end is also known as the server-end is mainly responsible for managing the data in the database and serving the data to the client-end that is to be displayed.

In these days, there are some hybrid versions including both designers and developers. Most of the reputed digital marketing companies like to hire the professionals those who know both designing and website development in Cape Town. Last note- before hiring, it is better to check the qualification and years of experience.
