Web design is the skill of creating presentations of content (usually hypertext or hypermedia) that is delivered to an end-user through the World Wide Web, by way of a Web browser or other Web-enabled software like Internet television clients, microblogging clients and RSS readers.
WHAT EXACTLY IS WEB DESIGN?
Web design is a process of conceptualization, planning, modeling, and execution of electronic media content delivery via Internet (or World wide Web eg. WWW) in the form of Markup language such as HTML suitable for interpretation by Web browsers (Such as IE and Firefox) thats display as a GUI (Graphical user interface).
Web Design is more than just the look and feel of your web site. This all encompassing field certainly encompasses the graphics of your web pages, but in most cases, the graphics can come last. Good Web Design begins with your web sites functionality, your audience, and engineering of your site’s framework.
A typical web designer will take into account your own branding and identity, but a qualified and adept designer will know about the development after the images have left the drawing board and become processed and ultimately your functioning web site.
Improvements in browser compliance with W3C standards prompted a widespread acceptance and usage of XHTML/XML in conjunction with CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to position and manipulate web site page elements.
The intent of web design is to create a web site a collection of pages that reside on a web server/servers and present content and interactive features to the end user in form of Web pages. Such elements as text, bitmap images (GIFs, JPEGs, PNGs), forms can be placed on the page using HTML/XHTML/XML tags. Displaying more complex media (vector graphics, animations, videos, sounds) requires plug-ins such as Flash, QuickTime, Java run-time environment, etc.
