Web Designer Vs Web Developer- A Quick Comparison

Saurabh Tiwary | 26th April 2016

We come across too much of hue and cry on how Web Designer differ from Web Developer. It is often a matter of debate among Techies while distinguishing them based on their contribution in the field of technology, their work and individual quality they share. Well, both of them, Web Designers and Web Developers together act as a pillar of the web and mobile-based development projects. However, they still stay apart on different grounds.

Web Designer vs Web Developer


Web Designer– A web designer is associated with the primary aesthetics of the proposed design like, layouts, graphics and usability of the design.


Web Developer– On the other hand, web developer is associated with the implementation of the proposed functionalities by the designer. Designers propose a design and work on front end while developers work on back end.


Comparison Based On Other Grounds:-

Web Designers Web Developers
Focuses on look and feel of the website design Creates internal architecture of the website
Uses HTML, CSS, Javascript Bears knowledge of programming languages like Java, C++, .NET etc.
Is competent in defining color scheme, graphic design structure and flow of information. Develops the User-Interface
Creates A User Experience Develops Interfaces through codes of the programming languages.
Known as right brained: Creativity, imagination, innovation and intuition Known as left brained: Technical, Logical and Thinker
Portfolio is of much importance than degree Experience of coding and technical knowledge is of great importance.


Afterall, both the designers and developers aim to achieve a specific goal that’s the development of the website or the mobile-apps. Whatever be their individual specifications, but they together contribute towards an object oriented task where designers look from the perspective of design and visuals while developers aim to provide seamless functionalities to the application.


Removing Barriers Of Communication Gap


It has been often seen that there exists a communication gap and there is a lack of proper coordination between designers and developers and it reflects in their work.

Some of the ways in which the communication gap can bridge are:-

  • Keep your ideas open by seeking opinion from each other based on design and development.
  • By learning how the other parts of the designing and development works.
  • Suggesting design and development ideas to one another is something that leads to bringing out a superior design.
