“What separates design from art is that design is meant to be... functional.”

My edge of Web Development

Quality website is not an expenses but rather an investment.

All of the websites I develop were created using Elimentor and WordPress. This not only means that your website is super cool and in line with the latest design trends, but you can also manage the site easily yourself. So, if you do want to handle the maintenance yourself it is very easy to do so.

I will take that extra mile to ensure that you’re happy with your web design results. If you have a clear idea about how your website should look then we can work around your specifications.

More about Web Developments...

Web development refers to the building, creating, and maintaining websites. It includes aspects such as web design, web publishing, web programming, and database management.

While the terms “web developer” and “web designer” are often used synonymously, they do not mean the same thing. Technically, a web designer only designs website interfaces using HTML and CSS. A web developer may be involved in designing a website, but may also write web scripts in languages such as PHP and ASP. Additionally, a web developer may help maintain and update a database used by a dynamic website.

Web development includes many types of web content creation. Some examples include hand-coding web pages in a text editor, building a website in a program like Dreamweaver, and updating a blog via a blogging website. In recent years, content management systems like WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla have also become popular means of web development. These tools make it easy for anyone to create and edit their own website using a web-based interface.

While there are several methods of creating websites, there is often a trade-off between simplicity and customization. Therefore, most large businesses do not use content management systems, but instead, have a dedicated Web development team that designs and maintains the company’s website(s). Small organizations and individuals are more likely to choose a solution like WordPress that provides a basic website template and simplified editing tools.

NOTE:  JavaScript programming is a type of web development that is generally not considered part of web design. However, a web designer may reference JavaScript libraries like jQuery to incorporate dynamic elements into a site’s design.

Web development comes in and how it is applied to allow that magical ping pong-process to occur. As a broad definition, a web developer’s primary purpose is to create a functional website that performs a set of particular, defined functions. Accomplishing this goal breaks down into three core phases.

Phase 1: Planning During this preliminary phase, a web developer will work closely with the client and other developers to plan the structure and core concepts of the site. This first phase is an ideal time to decide how the various pages and components of the site link to one another (also known as a sitemap). While the sitemap can take on many forms, it should effectively outline how a user will navigate around the site. During the planning phase, it is also vital to determine how the client will interact with the site as well. If the client will be posting blogs or adding products to the online store component, it is the planning stage that should specify exactly how these tasks will be performed.

Phase 2: Design The design phase is when the visual look and feel of the site is determined. This entails everything from color palette and fonts to page width and static image placement. If the planning phase determines what the user will do with the site, the design phase determines the where and the how. Typically a mockup for each page or component of the site is created in Photoshop by a designer or multi-disciplined developer. This mockup should typically include every visual element that is expected in the final page and is thus representative of what the client wants to see when visiting the website. Throughout the design process, it is critical to consider the target audience and the demographics of the website. The design should closely correspond to both the appropriate user base the site is marketed toward as well as the intended use of the site.

For example, Google is intended for all audiences and emphasizes speed and efficiency of search results, which fits the minimalist design Google uses, including a visual look comprised of almost exclusively text. Netflix, on the other hand, is all about audio and visual content and thus focused on a very colorful, full-screen design to highlight the multitude of shows available on the platform.

Phase 3: Development The development phase is of course the most crucial for web developers involved in the project, and where the majority of time and energy will be spent producing the final product. For most modern websites, the development process is broken down into three architectural components that the web developer will intermix throughout the procedure.

Application Logic: Often referred to as the model component, this represents the majority of the back-end code a developer will write to make the site function as expected. This logic is also where a developer must understand and utilize the connection between the site and the database that powers it.

Presentation: Commonly known as the view component, this is where the mockup that was created during the design phase is used by a developer to recreate the look and feel of the mockup image utilizing the basic building blocks of HTML and CSS, such that the end result is a webpage that looks identical to the mockup.

Connection: Also referred to as the controller component, this code defines the connections between the back-end business logic that handles the grunt work of the site and the front-end pages that users will access: It connects the back- and front-end code together.
