Web Designer vs. Web Developer

Have you ever wondered what’s the difference between a web designer and web developer? Well, they totally sound confusing, right? If you want to find out their differences, just continue reading this article until the end to know more about it.

 What is a Web Designer?

To know their difference, let us first identify what is a Web Designer. A Web Designer is a person or an individual who uses graphics software such as Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw, etc., to create and design a website.

Web designers create the visual design of a website and its overall look. They use their creativity and imagination to showcase their talents or projects to their potential clients and customers. To do this, web designers must first understand the needs of their client and come up with a concept that fits it. After doing so, they will start creating the visuals using the tools of their choice.

So, to make it simple, Web Designers are the one responsible for making a website appealing and pleasing to our eyes. They create the look, feature, and layout of a website. On the other hand, the coding for the website is done by the web developer.

  • Uses HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Is competent in color scheming, graphic design, and information flow
  • Creates a great user experience

What is a Web Developer?

A website with no code is not functional. So, basically, a Web Developer’s’ job is to bring the website to life. But how? Through coding. Usually, Web Developers’ build the backbone of a website by using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, and more. Their ultimate goal isn’t to make websites look visually appealing but develop a functional one.

  • Creates the inner workings of a website
  • Is competent in programming languages (PHP, .NET, Python, C, Ruby)
