Web Design Anne Arundel County Maryland In classical terms, web design describes the visual appearance of a website. The traditional approach involves contrast, coloring, balance, emphasis, rhythm, style of graphical elements (such as lines, shapes, texture, color and direction), use of icons, background textures and general atmosphere of overall website design. All these website elements combined form websites. Web design also includes more abstract elements such as usability, ergonomics, layout traditions, user habits, navigation logic and other things that simplify the using of websites to make it user­friendly. Sometimes the technical side of website design is emphasized in the definition of design. Instead of speaking to people with poor or limited technical knowledge about technical details, we concentrate on functionalities. Web designers use a variety of different tools depending on what part of the production process they are involved: ● Tools are updated over time by newer standards and software. ● The principles behind them remain the same. ● Web designers use graphics editors to create web­formatted imagery or design prototypes. ● Ensures the website is user­friendly ● Utilize the style of graphical elements such as lines, colors, shapes, etc. ● Make sure the website is relevant to services / products ● Ensures the homepage of the website grabs the viewer’s attention immediately because that page is the most important of all other pages To summarize, Web Design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. The above list is just a handful of tool and skills designers use. The different areas of web design include web graphic design, interface design, authoring, user experience design, and search engine optimization.
