Here in this article, we shall discuss the various differentiating criteria between website design and website development.

The difference in terms of concept:

The purpose of website development is primarily to build a website which is error free, loaded quickly, and has no glitches in terms of its functioning and performance of the website.

The supporting tools and applications:

As far as website design is concerned, it is supported by - obviously PhotoShop and also by other design software like Coral draw etc, Adobe photoshop offers the users with great resources to design a particular website.

Talking about website development, the clear understanding and practical applications of coding languages, primarily HTML, CSS are required. The support comes in the form CSS frameworks, website development plugins etc.

Difference in terms of skill set:

Website designer has to be an ace designer. He must have the clear cut working knowledge of various design software like Adobe PhotoShop, Coral draw etc. Besides, a designer may be involved closely with the clients, thus interpersonal skills are essential. Designing a lot of creative process, thus the designer needs to be organized, creative and must have the clear understanding of design software.

The website developer is someone who undertakes the back end processing. He needs to be a technical wizard and must carry technology at the back of his hand.
