Web Design and Development

Designing is more to do with the look and layout while developing is more about the code and functioning of the site. Everything related to server-side programming using PHP or ASP.net is development. Designing includes user interface development including client-side scripting using javascript too.

In a simple word, website development is building the website from scratch or built it with the help of coding. Website design is like decorating a house with a different color and pattern.

In the technical aspect, everything related to server side programming using PHP or ASP.net is development. Designing include user interface development including client-side scripting using javascript too.

Web development is closely related to designing the job and feature as per the functionality. The term development is a continous process because of website development can't be completed in one day. The basic tools for programming for web programming languages called HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), and JavaScript.
Like building a house, websites designing is different from one another. There’s really a wide range of pre-built and custom theme available, a web developer can choose from there. Website development is very construction and maintenance work in web development.

Web development can also be involved in working with a content management system (CMS) like WordPress, Drupal. These are the programs built to manage websites.

web design refers to both the aesthetic portion of the website and it’s usability. Web designers use various design programs such as Adobe Photoshop to create the layout and other visual elements of the website.

Web Developers on the other hand, take a website design and actually make a functioning website from it. Web developers use HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP and other programming languages to bring to life the design files.

I would like to answer the question The above image should give you a rough idea about what each classification of job under web development takes care of.

Designing a webpage takes care of its aesthetic and usability aspects of it. It's a designer's job to take of which color combination to use and how to keep the entire layout balanced. They also take care as to what part of the content has to be given importance and be presented to the user in a particular way and how the rest of the content has to be delivered.

Designers are the one's who execute the initial steps towards website building. Generally, they create the layout​ on Photoshop during the initial stages and then dive into the front-end development section with the help of HTML, CSS et cetera.

The web developer is more regarding the functional aspects of the website. For example, if there are forms in your website then it's highly likely that the code that handles all the data is written by a backend developer. Developers take the input from the designer and add further functionality related to the programming side of it. There is basically no creativity and beautification of the website involved here.

Designing deals with the user interface, user experience, the layout of the website.

Development deals with the functionality of the site on the front-end and back-end. It gives life to your website.
