Web Designer vs Web Developer
Many people get these two titles confused and figure that if it has the word ‘Web’, followed by ‘De’ that they are a synonym but that is hardly the case. Good luck on your project if you try to get a Web Developer to Design your web page you will have a pretty functional looking page that may lack an artistic flare.
When launching a website there are two primary areas of importance: the look (design layout), and the functionality.
Luckily for you, in Isaacs Software, we provide both services.
Our Web Designer’s prime focus is aesthetically designing a website that is catchy, and appealing to a website’s targeted demographic; whereas our Web Developer’s prime focus is to ensure that the website works as expected. Let’s look into some of the tools, and techniques used by our Web Designers, and Web Developers.
Our Web Designers match the visual theme of the website with your content. For example, if you are in the business of Children’s Toys, the ideal theme will probably focus on bright colors like pink, and blues. Whereas, a financial website will most likely opt for solid primary colors like black, white, grey, and blue. The visual look of the website is the first thing a viewer sees when they visit your webpage, it is imperative to create a good first impression.
Nothing is worse than visiting a site that looks like it was developed in the mid 90’s or uses colors that bleed into each other. Our project manager will meet with you before any design or code is started to get your personal input on the look of the website, and to also show you some concepts and designs.
Our Web Developers are responsible for making sure that the visual look of the website functions optimally. Furthermore, they are responsible for coding the website and maintaining the server files. The technology used by our Web Developers can be found in our Services section.
Our Web Developers play a very important role when their is a website outage. Its not the Web Designer that will be called. Instead, it will be the up to our Web Developers to troubleshoot and fix the problem. Isaacs Software Web Developers have great problem solving skills, and thrive under the pressure.
On any given website project where you may have Web Designers, Content Creators, and other contributing members, the Web Developer is the de facto Project Manager ensuring that all the content works well with the site.
In all, our Web Designers, and Web Developers play an important role in creating an effective website. Web Developers have a longer period of involvement with a web project as the Web Developer has to: maintain the website, fix any bugs, or performance issues that may occur from time to time. Whereas, a Web Designer may be a onetime cost as the Web Design does not change periodically unless the website owner requires a drastic redesign.
