This blog post will walk you through some of the most important things you should know about web design.

What is Web Design?

Few perfectly designed websites may have grabbed your attention and made you feel an instant connection with the content, appealing to your senses and stirring up a sense of discovery and fulfilment. So how these websites are designed to captivate your senses?


Website design is a method of planning, visualizing, and designing the user interface of a website. The goal is to enhance the web experience of users through effective page layout, intuitive navigation, and high-quality content.

The website design process is similar to the process of designing a physical product, except that it takes place on a computer with tools for drawing, prototyping, and coding.

Difference between Web Design & Development

Website design & development are often mistakenly used as interchangeable terms, but they are very different. A website’s design is the way your website looks, while web development is how it works.


Web design includes design, usability, content creation, and site architecture. This means that a web designer must be able to visually communicate ideas as well as possess strong knowledge of user experience principles such as accessibility, information architecture, and wireframing.


On the other side, web development goes hand-in-hand with web design as it is the process of building a website and writing code that makes it function. Web developer follows the designs provided by web designers and implement them in a website. A web developer is expected to have good knowledge of programming languages such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and SQL or other programming languages that are used in web development.

What is Responsive Web Design?

Responsive web design (RWD) is a web design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).

What are the tools used in web design?

Design software tools such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe XD etc. are being used to create website wireframes, custom features, and design elements.

What makes a good website design?

A good web design is something that looks good in every browser at every resolution on every device. It also provides multiple navigation options with fluid animations when switching between them.

It should give users an idea of what it is about without asking too much effort from their end by having well-structured content along with easy-to-read layout patterns.

It should be responsive enough to look great on all screen sizes and resolutions. It should efficiently be able to guide the visitor through all the important information they want to access which strengthens their association with your business.
