What's the Difference Between Web Design vs Web Development?

Web design refers to how a website appears to users on the internet and the website’s overall usability. Web development involves writing the code to make the web design become a reality.

Website CMS’s like WordPress and Drupal automate some development responsibilities by providing templates and plugins out of the box to help you get started. For more complex websites, we recommend hiring a web development company with experience developing for your website CMS. A skilled web developer will help you execute on your designs, maintain your website, and provide recommendations for security and performance.

What Are the Types of Web Design?

There are 8 main types of web design:

  1. Brochure websites: A simple website that highlights a person or business with a few static pages. It is inexpensive and easy to build and may be enough for some small business or individual needs.
