Understanding online design requirements.
What is the difference between a Graphic Designer & a Web Designer?
A Web Designer specialises in designing for online and screen consumption.
Traditionally, Graphic Designers would design for print production only. They work predominately in CMYK and sometimes in PMS colours that are used by digital and offset printers. Print is all about high resolutions and are consumed in a more tactile way (you can flip through a brochure with your hands or walk past a poster for example).
A web designer works in a completely different colour space, predominately RGB & Hex code. You are usually scrolling or browsing through web content on a screen. A web designer has special considerations for user experience on a variety of screen sizes and devices, as well as making sure the artwork is at the smallest optimized size for quick loading on any internet connection. There is a huge number of file types and specifications that need to be addressed working on web design projects, this is why it is so important to hire an experienced web designer who knows what they are doing.
