What a web designer does
Website designers craft the visuals for a brand-new website or build on existing web pages. This includes creating graphics, images, and custom illustrations, and choosing fonts, colours, and more to create a cohesive finished product.
Additionally, web designers create the layout of the website, the flow of different pages and paragraphs, the spacing, and generally plan out how the user will experience the site.
Because the website is an extension of the brand, web designers carefully choose colours, fonts, graphics, videos, etc. to convey the personality of the brand and meet the needs and expectations of the target audience.
Useability is the primary concern when a web designer is crafting a website. It doesn’t matter how beautiful the visuals are if the audience can’t read the text or see the images properly. A web designer’s primary job is to create a functional and aesthetic extension of the brand.
Other potential responsibilities
Usually, a web developer will do most of the technical, backend work of creating a website, but there can also be some overlap here. Our web design and web development teams work very closely together to create the best finished product possible.
Besides the website itself, web designers can also design the layout and aesthetics of a mobile version of a site and other responsive design elements.
Web designers can also focus their time and energy on the functionality of a website rather than just aesthetics. Since user experience is such an important factor that contributes to conversion rates, loyal customer bases, and brand awareness, this can be one of the most important aspects of the project.
Tools web designers use
Web designers will use tools like Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, and Inkscape to create the website design.
What does the process look like?
After you decide to work with our web design team at Creative Coco’Nuts, we will listen, discuss, and consult with you to learn about your design goals, your audience, your brand, and anything else that’s important to the project.
You’ll present your vision to us, and we will provide feedback, discuss logistics, and dive deeper into what you need from the project. Then, we’ll provide you with a free quote so you can make an informed decision.
And finally, we’ll start designing! We’ll keep you updated along the way and work to meet your deadlines. This is your website, so you can be as involved or as hands off in the process as you’d like to be. Collaboration is an important part of web design, so our designers are always open to hearing your feedback.
Once you’ve approved the final web design product, it will go live, ready for all your users to experience.
Other similar design roles
Web designers aren’t the only creative and detail-oriented people involved in website design. User experience (UX) designers, front-end web developers, user interface (UI) designers, and visual designers all have similar goals and work to create aesthetically pleasing and functional websites.
