Adding Clarity

We have had the question asked multiple times, why can’t the guy working on the back deal with the other stuff? Or, why are you talking of it like two separate parts? 

Not to say your developer can’t he or she may be diverse and is able to take care of both web development and designing and that is great, but, a two in one is often rare and they are diamond once found. Your development team may speak with you as if they are separate entities and they are correct. These definitions will elaborate on what I am explaining here.

Web Developer

As is defined on techopedia a web developer is a programmer who specializes in the development of applications relating to the world wide web or distributed network applications, which typically run protocols like HTTP from a web server to a client’s browser using associated programming languages. A web developer is one who also makes your designs, the beauty of your websites be functional thus, enhancing your user experience.

Web Designer

Defined by technojobs a web designer is an IT professional who is responsible for designing the layout, visual appearance and usability of a website. A great designer is usually educated or equipped with graphical skills and a tad bit knowledge on other technical parts ensuring that your developer has an ironed path to go once the project is initiated.

For a more down to earth example your designer would be your architect in building your dream home. They know all the details where each room should be, the landscape of the yard space, and, even the facet for pipes and the style locks on all doors. Your developer will be the one to come in and ensure that electricity is in all plugs, water in all facets and the home is a dream-like you have envisioned.
