Today we are going to see the difference between web designing and web development , You may be wondering if there is any difference between they pair but i can assure you there are lots of difference between web designing and web development.

According to Wikipedia - Web design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. The different areas of web design include web graphic design; interface design ; authoring, including standardised code and proprietary software ; user experience design ; and search engine optimization . Often many individuals will work in teams covering different aspects of the design process, although some designers will cover them all. The term web design is normally used to describe the design process relating to the front-end (client side) design of a website including writing mark up

- Web development is a broad term for the work involved in developing a web site for the Internet ( World Wide Web ) or an intranet (a private network). Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web-based internet applications (or just 'web apps') electronic businesses, and social network services.

You can clearly see above that web development is different from web designing , so do misunderstand the two .

Web designing is simply customising , designing and coding a simple webpage using Softwares (e.g Adobe Dreamweaver),HTML, CSS, Bootstrap or other visual elements.

Web Development - basically, is the act of building,programming a simple static web design into an advanced webpage using programming languages like php,python,perl, etc

A Web designer can create a static , Front-end web page and hand it over to a web developer for some more front-end and back-end work.So web developer can turn the simplest of webpage to the most advanced and dynamic website.

A web designer does all the front-end part of a webpage while a web developer does all the back-end part of the website.

An example of a designed webpage and a developed webpage will shade more light on this discussion.

A clear example of a designed website is a web portfolio, yes a normal simple porfolio that displays informations in texts,links,images and table blocks . A portfolio is static in nature with no advanced functions like registration and login portal, messaging board etc.

An example of developed Webpage is a social network e.g Facebook , lets take a look at some of the dynamic functions of facebook.Facebook homepage i.e the first page you see when you logged into facebook is dynamic in nature,the login and registration page are all designed by a web designer but the error or successful message you get when you try logging in or registering are the works of a web developer. Creating Groups, Liking and create pages, Chatting, Commenting on facebook etc can all not be possible without the help of a web developer.

After seeing this examples it is now clear that both are special in there own way.In some cases, they both need each other but when creating a simple static webpage like a company portfolio you need the skills of a web designer but when working on a dynamic webpage you certainly must need a developer.
