Manhattan Website Development Firm Explains the Differences Between A Web Designer and A Web Developer

New York website development company says that business owners should not confuse website designers with website developers, as each offers his or her own set of unique qualifications and each is necessary for online success.

“While many people confuse the roles of a website developer and a website designer, even treating the two as one in the same, the truth is that both serve a completely different purpose and both are of equal importance,” says Peter Crisafi, Vice President of dzine it, Inc., a leading New York website development firm with clients throughout the United States. “Developers take a business’s ideas and bring them to life, while designers bring the beauty and the style necessary to make a website visually-pleasing and easy to use.”

According to Crisafi, confusing these two roles can be truly detrimental to a business’s plan for the creation of an online presence.

“A true website developer or programmer doesn’t use existing software to map out your online business model,” says Crisafi. “Instead, a website developer is a qualified individual that is capable of taking a task and bringing it to life, from start to finish.”

This is something that a website designer is not qualified to do, says Crisafi.

“Most website designers that are lacking in development experience try to manipulate existing software to suit the needs of their client,” says Crisafi. “Although that is a valiant effort, it often results in numerous bugs and poor functionality. A true website developer develops website software from scratch.”

That is not to say that a website designer is not important to the development of an online presence, Crisafi notes.

“A website designer is the person who brings beauty to a website, while the designer brings functionality,” says Crisafi. “Although there are website designers out there that use existing software to develop sites for their clients at a reduced rate, you need both a designer and a developer in order to succeed.”
