Web design is the process of creating websites. It encompasses a number of diverse facets, including page design, content production, and graphic design. While the provisions
web design and web development are frequently used interchangeably, web design is technically a subset of the broader group of internet development.
Websites are made using a markup language named HTML. Web designers build webpages using HTML tags which define the content and meta data of each webpage. The design and appearance of those elements within a webpage are generally characterized with CSS, or cascading stylesheets. So, most internet sites include a combination of HTML and CSS that defines each page will appear at a browser.
Some web designers prefer to hand code pages (scanning HTML and CSS from scratch), while others use a"WYSIWYG" editor such as Adobe Dreamweaver. Such a editor provides a visual interface for designing the webpage layout and the software automatically produces the corresponding HTML and CSS code. Another popular way to create websites is by using a content management system such as WordPress or even Joomla. These services give different site templates that can be applied as a startingpoint for a new website. Web-masters can then add content and customize the design using an internet interface.
While HTML and CSS have been utilised to create the look and feel of a site, graphics must be generated separately. Consequently, graphicdesign may overlap with web design, since graphic designers often create images for use on the Web. Some graphics programs like Adobe Photoshop even include a"Save for Web…" option that provides an easy way to export images in a format optimized for web publishing.
