Website design requires a very broad and specialised I.T. skill set. Websites are complex beasts and require both technical aptitude and creativity; that when used together seamlessly can produce quite an engaging end product.
It is in practicing these skills that I find to be the most exciting and rewarding experience both for myself and my clients, as no two website projects are ever the same.
As part of my web design services Canberra the focus is mainly centred around how a website is going to look, feel and function as well as web page layout , selecting fonts, colours and positioning of graphic and other interactive elements including forms. It can also involve making sure that those elements work correctly on both desktop and mobile devices.
A web designer may also be familiar with frontend development and some common frontend programming languages:
Backend development is something that is done more behind the scenes – and can involve a variety of other complex processes that facilitate the functioning of a website in other ways which may include collecting data from a form and storing it in a database or performing complex operations on user data, sending an email message or even entire applications like a CMS (content management system) will use many backend processes. Backend development requires a sound knowledge of at least one of these backend programming languages:
Not all web designers are familiar with coding, some use drag and drop style software or simply just install Wordpress , install a theme and call it a day. Some web designers don’t have an understanding of HTML & CSS which can make it rather challenging for them if they have to fix something or modify something on a website or project not created by them.
At Neondragonfly Web Design I am well versed in both the design aspects and technical aspects which I believe to be a great advantage when it comes to consulting with clients on projects and helps to craft a product experience that looks and feels exactly how it was intended.
