11 Jun Web Designer or Graphic Designer, Whichever You May Need – Patrick Browne is Always There
An old customer of ours asked a very pertinent question the other day. She was curious to know whether we are Graphic Designers or Web Designers, to be very specific. I excused for a minute to bring her a cup of coffee and then clarified the issue to her fullest satisfaction.
What is Graphic Design?
Graphic Design, to be precise, entails creation of graphics with the help of appropriate type face (some require serif face, while some others are best expressed in sans serif faces), photographs and illustrations to represent an idea. Although Graphic Designs are mostly associated with the print industry, they are also found in web projects. Graphic Designers usually generate digital graphics which are subsequently turned into flyer, pamphlet, brochure, etc. In short, they take ideas, thoughts, messages, etc and then shape these into visual form through sundry media. Most Graphic Designers use Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator) while some use Quark Xpress.
What is Web Design?
Web Design also entails creation of graphics with the help of typography, illustration, etc, with the only difference being the use of World Wide Web. A Web Designer needs some special skill too. Websites need to load quickly and run well. Besides, he has to account for issues such as screen resolution, file size, etc that needs to compensate with overall speed and satisfactory performance.. In order to meet such exigencies, Web Designers usually go for compressed graphics, maybe at the cost of quality and value. But above all, Web Designers are required to turn their designs into a workable website. This again needs fullest familiarity with HTML (HyperText Markup Language) as also CSS (Cascading Style Sheets).
However, I assured her that we at Patrick Browne provide both the services for our clients, while it is up to them to choose whichever they like.
