Designer vs. Programmer

By Web Works Design Manager, B. Barry

In the web design world, the difference between designers and programmers is like peanut butter and jelly. They go great together, but they come from very different places.Fine Arts Color Palette

Designers go to art schools and have Fine Arts degrees. Their education is spent painting, drawing and using photoshop. When they graduate, their skill set is one of intuitive thought, creative thinking, and imagining what the best look and feel is for their client’s design. Programmers go to technical schools and spend most of their time in computer labs learning to “speak computer,” or in other words, writing code. They know a whole different language that most of the world doesn’t even know exists.

Our designers not only design the sites, but build them into the fully functioning web sites that you see in our portfolio. We have some truly talented individuals on the design team that are able to think and design on multiple levels. Consider Web Works the peanut butter and jelly of the web design world.
