Responsive web design is web design that automatically adjusts and resizes a website to make it look good on every device, whether it’s a laptop, tablet, phone screen etc.
Web designers conceive powerful visual content and elements which developers then code into the website. Both work closely together to accomplish a business’s goals.
Web development technologies are the programs and tools that web developers use, including programming languages, development frameworks and databases.
Web developers take on the more technical tasks involved in building a website. Copywriters and graphic designs create the content and visual aspects and web developers code it into the site using the right coding language, scripts and configurations.
Backend web development focuses on the unseen parts of the website, such as writing APIs (Application Programming Interfaces), developing clean code and debugging.
A full stack developer is a web developer who works with both the back and front ends of a website.
A front end web developer focuses on the parts of a website that a user can see and interact with, e.g. by coding the graphics and links displayed on the website.
You can find the right website designer the same way you search for any other creative professional. Establish your goals and your budget, research different designers and examine their portfolios, and get in touch to ask questions.
Many web users make judgements about a company’s credibility based on its web design alone. Great design not only makes your site appear more professional, it also makes it easier to use and navigate – and increases your conversions.
