Although these two terms are often used interchangeably, there is a difference between graphic and web design. Here at Nettl:MK, we provide a comprehensive service for both of the two design services and in our latest post discuss the differences between these two roles.
What is Graphic Design?
Graphic design can refer to creating graphics, typography and images. Some wrongly interpret that graphic designers only work on print projects, but graphic designers also produce work for digital formats.
An important thing to note is that a graphic designer won’t typically carry out any programming and will instead focus on creating a wide range of graphics which may be used for print or online work.
What is Web Design
As the name suggests, a web designer will create graphics, typography and images, but specifically for websites.
Web designers may be considered to have more restrictions when it comes to design as they need to create websites that load quickly. Additionally, a web designer must ensure that their designs can function and work on a website, using HTML and in some cases CSS.
It’s clear to see from this brief breakdown of the two design roles that there is a fundamental difference in the way these two roles are carried out. Whilst web designers may see art as a way to leverage technology, a graphic designer will use art first to create a finished product and will consequently need to understand how each of these design elements translates to print.
