Web design is the process of creating websites. It encompasses many different elements, including page layout, content production, and graphic design. As the terms web design and web development are frequently used interchangeably, web design is technically a subset of the wider category of internet development.
Websites are made with a mark up language known as HTML. Web designers build webpages using HTML tags that specify the articles and meta-data of each webpage. The design and appearance of the elements within a webpage have been generally characterized using CSS, or cascading style sheets. Therefore, most websites include a blend of HTML and CSS that defines the way each page can look in a browser.
Some web designers prefer to hand code pages (scanning HTML and CSS from scratch), while others work with a"WYSIWYG" editor including Adobe Dreamweaver. This type of editor gives a visual interface for designing your webpage layout and the software automatically produces the corresponding HTML and CSS code. Yet another popular way to design web sites is with a content management system such as WordPress or Joomla. These services provide different website templates that can be applied as a starting point for a new site. Webmasters may then add material and customize the layout using a web-based interface.
While HTML and CSS have been utilised to design the appearance and feel of a site, graphics must be created separately. For that reason, graphic-design can overlap with
web design , since graphic artists regularly create images for use on the internet. Some graphics programs like Adobe Photoshop also incorporate a"Save for Web…" option that provides an easy way to export images in a format optimized to web publishing.
