What is Web Design? Web design comprises of many different abilities including skills and disciplines in the creation and maintenance of websites. It also includes the navigation between the pages of the website. The different areas of web design include Web Hosting, Domain Name Registration, web graphic design; interface design; authoring, including standardised code (as described later) and proprietary software; user experience design; and search engine optimization, including Online Marketing, Social Media marketing and Backlinks. Often many individuals (known as “designers”) will work in teams covering different aspects of the design process, although some designers will cover them all. The term website design is normally used to describe the design process relating to the front-end (client side) design of a website including writing mark up. Web design partially overlaps web engineering in the broader scope of web development. Web designers are expected to have an awareness of usability and if their role involves creating mark-up then they are also expected to be up to date with web accessibility guidelines. Part of the user interface design is affected by the quality of the page layout. For example, a designer may consider if the sites page layout should remain consistent on different pages when designing the layout. Page pixel width may also be considered vital for aligning objects in the layout design for adjustments especially for Internet Explorer, Firefox normally does not need any adjustments. The most popular fixed-width websites generally have the same set width to match the current most popular browser window, at the current most popular screen resolution, on the current most popular monitor size. Most pages are also centre-aligned for concerns of aesthetics on larger screens. Part of the web design also involves Planning for the content of the website. The Designer will ensure the content is logically laid out and easy for your clients to find the information they require with ease. Once the page layout is confirmed the designer will need to consider the look of the website which needs to include fonts, colours and images in addition to the branding needs to extend your business and any marketing material. The designer also has to consider the website will be viewed from different browsers (FireFox, Safari, Opera and Internet Explorer as well as the older versions) and certain tweaking to ensure it looks the same in every browser. Depending on the clients requirements different programming languages can be used as the structured the code. The base language is HTML (Hyper Text Mark-up Language) which most designers us either this or variants of HTML, like PHP, HTML5, CSS, CSS4.
