Website Design Process: Old vs. New

Wow. It’s already 2016. If you would have asked me when I was a kid what the world would be like today, I’m sure I would been expecting flying cars. Well, we might not have flying cars yet, but the technology of the world has changed dramatically, especially within the online realm.

Website design in particular has come a long way, specifically, the process of creating the design and translating it to the web forum. It wasn’t too long ago when Photoshop files were an accepted form of website design draft. With this method, a designer would create a website design in Photoshop, save it as a PDF, and send it to a website developer. The developer would then have to “slice” the PDF into sections, code the individuals pieces into the site, and match them all back up like a puzzle. Both time-consuming and difficult, this is no longer the case. Today, the process is much simpler.

Though the old route of slicing a PDF and coding is still applicable, a much faster and simpler form of web design has emerged. Developers have discovered that beginning with a theme or framework proves to be the most efficient and effective path to completion. This process reduces the Tim Gunn “make it work” ideal of the previous development.

The new method leads with a framework that needs to be filled, not a picture that needs to be trimmed. It also reduces the headache of putting a puzzle together. Unless you like that sort of thing, then stick with the old school way.

While the new way is simpler for web developers, you might want to leave this work to a professional. Coding and frameworks can get pretty confusing and overwhelming. That’s where we come in.
