Learn the Difference Between Graphic Design, Web Design, and Web Development
When it comes to the realm of online marketing there are a lot of different terms thrown around, some of which can seem confusingly similar. Three such terms are graphic design, web design, and web development. So what’s the difference between them?
At Lincoln Digital Group we’re expert in all three, so we thought we’d take a moment to clear things up.
Graphic Design, Web Design and Web Development: How Are They Different?
- Graphic Design
Essentially, graphic design is the creative process that goes into any and all things visual. Any visually creative element of your branding whether traditional or online falls under this category—ads, signage, webslides, logos, letterheads, and so on. These are the visual elements that make up your campaign.
- Web Design
While related to graphic design, web design is a more technical process that involves crafting a website. This is the frontend of your website—the part that is seen by your audience. Oftentimes it involves taking various graphic design elements then composing them into a cohesive, usable website.
- Web Development
This is primarily the backend of your website—the part that your audience won’t see. It’s all the code behind the scenes that makes it functional.
