Who should I Hire A Graphic or a Web Designer?
Graphic Vs Web designer. The quick answer is both of them. As our front-end graphic designer is occupied with design, layout, typography, image research etc, our back-end web designer is working creating the server, databases, setting up software, developing various custom code and so forth.
The secret is to maintain the communication open so that the left-hand knows exactly what the right is doing and the other way round. Should the communication fail, difficulties develop and they do it relatively quickly.
The conventional procedure involves an information-gathering meeting with the client, the graphic designer along with the web designer and programmer. Depending on the nature of the client company together with web needs, this meeting could also require numerous other individuals, for instance a writer, marketing and/or public relations person, photographer, and so forth. A number of questions are asked; everyone shakes hands and goes on their separate way.
The client is required to organize a project brief that explains all of the crucial points with regards to goals, target market, competitors, required site functionality, financial budget, and so on.
Then, we have the development of a proposal or project brief, which, if all goes well, will be gleefully approved by the client and funds will exchange hands. Essentially, this means the client’s money going into the designers’ hands.
Many of our graphic designers also develop code and several all of our web designers are very acquainted with layout and design, typography along with front-end design elements. Therefore, evidently identifying responsibilities is quite important. We don’t want to be tripping over each other’s work.
The graphic designer will start to design, in accordance with the information and facts collected at the initial client meeting. It’s critically important to maintain the web designer informed before deciding on a final design. It’s the kiss of death to get a design approved simply to have the programmer say, “Um … yeah … that’s not going to work.”
In our my experience, the graphic design is what comes first but at the same time the challenges may occur when the front-end graphic designer doesn’t really know a whole lot in regards to what occurs beneath the hood of a website. Our advice to you is to always hire a designer that has some experience in web design as well as coding. The truth is, things that work in print don’t always work in a browser.
When our graphic designer begins designing our web designer is developing a wireframe (a stripped down, graphics-free version of the design). Also screen sharing is quite handy. This way it’s always easy to tell if your or the graphic designer’s ideas are actually produce-able.
Our front-end graphic designers mainly work on Macs and the web designers usually work in a Windows PC. Due to the fact that colors look distorted on a PC, so while our front-end graphic designer is seeing beautiful Panton pallets of refined colors, what the web designer is seeing is quite different. Our Web designers will use Safari as their main web browser and then latter uses Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome in order to spot any major differences. The point is, we will always address usability and function early on. We will test, test and test then more some more. Keep in mind that there may be occasions when we will have to make a design sacrifice or two in the in order to achieve usability.
Lastly, we all have these wonderful ideas in our heads, Ideas, concepts as well as layouts that are absolutely crystal clear and make perfect sense to us. However, what often happens often in human communication is that what’s absolutely clear to us is total confusing to someone else. The ability to understand your ideas and concepts and the ability to bring them to reality is what will set us apart from other companies.
