    Web designers typically have a creative mind set, whereas web developers usually think methodically and logically. Because of the very different mind sets of designers and developers, it is very hard to find a good web designer who is also a good web developer. Web developers probably can’t create an attractive web design. And web designers would likely have a hard time thinking logically to develop a proper functioning web application.

    That being said, hiring a website company is your best bet to get an all around perfect website, from the design to the programming. Website companies are able to offer you the best of both worlds, by divvying up projects between their web designers and web developers. Typically a website company will also have a project manager on hand, who will be able to effectively manage projects and make sure the developers and designers are on the same page. No one person can be an expert at everything. By hiring a website company, like WebDuck Designs, you will get a properly managed and well planned website that will look great and function properly.

    Actually One should go for designing, After some time a designer can able to develop a website without the help of a web developer easily but for a web developer designing work will not be easy. Mostly people who were in design now can do both work - designing and development.

    It depends what kind of website it is, who are users that the website targets, whether it is static or dynamic website, What data base would be suitable for the website. There may be no particular rule as to what should be done first or what comes first.

    Web designer: A person who prepares web content, the main role of the web designer includes styling and layout of pages keeping in mind the content; this includes both text and images. The main technologies that the web designer relies on for web designing are hypertext and hyper media resource that comprises CSS, HTML and additional tools required for web design. The web designers create scripts for web as they are often skillful at different higher level programming languages. The web designers are focused to use their ability to create website that will show well on various browsers and devices.

    Web developer: A person who is particularly engaged for the development of applications of the World Wide Web, or network applications that are distributed and run from web server to browser over the HTTP. As per the website owners’ requirements the web developer uses programming to enable the functionality of the website. Web developers are mainly focused on the non-designing aspect of website building this includes write up and coding. Web developers performs task that range from creation of plain text pages to complex web based applications, e-business apps and social network applications. The web developer comes across different orders in web development like client side coding, the coding based at server side and Database technology. :cool:

    Very good. Web designers are kind of a like artists. Whereas the developers are more like engineers who solve problems.
