Difference Between a Web Designer and Web Developer

Web Designer

Web designer use graphic design software such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign to create an outfit of the website. Web designer may not a person who writing a code and also they will work independently in some case. Much of web designers’ job is creative and uses both intuition and imagination, often characteristic of people who are considered right-brained. They collect work portfolios to showcase their projects for potential employers

 

Web Developer

Web developer build skeleton of websites, typically from the ground up, and knows languages specific to the web. They usually use HTML, Java script, JQuery and CSS. Normally, they do not focus on visualisation but only focus on creating website with clean code. Web developers are often considering as left-brained workers that think logically and better in technical abilities. Most employers will demand a portfolio that related with computer science or programming during the hiring process.

 

However, it does not need to be separate both. You can be both web designer and web developer at the same time. Design and development are converging for a number of people and even for designers who never considered learning development and vice versa.
