What Does a Web Designer Do?

A web designer is someone who helps to create and design a website’s layout, who will normally work with a web design agency. The term web design may refer to both the process of designing and building a website, as well as the actual design of the website. Web designers can use a variety of tools including graphic design programs for designing layouts and logos and content management systems like WordPress and Drupal for building websites.

What Does a Web Designer Do?

The goal of a web designer is to help make websites more user-friendly, appealing, navigable, understandable and accessible. The job of a web designer includes making things like colour schemes and font selections that will make the site look aesthetically pleasing.

The process of designing a website can be broken down into three steps:

1) Researching the kind of website you would like your web designer to build.

2) Creating the design for your website with your web designer.

3) Implementing your website designs and content with your web designer.

The research step involves determining what kind of website you want to create, what competitors websites you like and what kind of product or service you’re offering. This is where you’ll discuss how many pages the site should have, how much information should be displayed on each page, etc. The design step involves drawing out all the elements and specifying colours and fonts for use in the design. The implementation step is when your newly designed website goes live; this is where all the pages are uploaded to their corresponding URLs so they can be accessed by users online.


In this post we’ve outlined the process of designing websites, and what a web designer does.
