FAQs: Web Design
What is web design?
Web design is a discipline that combines elements of website development, graphic design, copywriting and search engine optimization (SEO), and focuses on creating the design of a website. It involves building a functional and inviting layout of the site that is easy for the user to understand and navigate. Effective web design also delivers the message of the site while retaining that ease of use.
