Web design is the process of creating the visual feel, layout, and flow of web pages on a website. It involves UX design, graphic design, and overall knowledge of the best spacing, fonts, shapes, and colors to use to create a user-friendly experience. Good web design solidifies your company's credibility regardless of industry or field. Having a one-of-a-kind design for your website can make all the difference in today's web-based world.

Web designers work with UX designers and web developers to take a wireframe and design and transform it into a product. They outline visual updates to pages on your website or create an entirely new concept for a redesign. If you're on the fence about hiring a web design company, remember that we spend most of our time online, so being found online is key to boosting business.

Luckily, the United Kingdom has some of the best web designers to hire. Use our list to find and connect with web designers in the UK. Evaluate their case studies, project types, and client reviews to determine which company is the best fit for you.

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.
  2. E-commerce websites: Allow you to sell products from your site and share essential information about the products you offer. Some e-commerce websites also have a blog.
  3. Portfolio websites: Best for creatives like artists and photographers who want to display their work. Typically, portfolio websites include a couple informational pages like a brochure website, as well as visuals and images to showcase creative work.
