Information About Web Design

What is Web Design?

Anything used to create a web page is known as web design. Specifically it refers to the work that is done to create the front end of a web page. The front end is the visual aspect of a web page that is interactive. The back end contains all the information that only the computer understands. Web designers generally use the (X)HTML and CSS programs to create web pages. But these are best for small sites. For larger sites that have more information PHP, ColdFusion and ASP are the programming languages that are more popular with web designers. If designers want to do something different to the websites then Macromedia’s Flash is what they use.

Earlier there were many technical constraints in web designing. For example, a graphic designer knows the size of the paper that will be used for printing. But a web designer has to think of different monitor sizes, different display settings and even browsers that are meant for non sighted users. But with all the technological progress that has been made in the past few years, there are limitless possibilities to web designing now. So you if are interested in web designing, you should join a web designing training course.
