What is web design

What Is Web Design?

OK basically, web design refers to both the aesthetic portion of the website and it’s usability.

Web designers use various design programmess such as Adobe Photoshop to create the layout and other visual elements of the website. Some people who put together wordpress websites call themselves web designers too.

Web Developers on the other hand, take a website design and make a functioning website from it. Web developers use HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP and other programming languages to bring to life the design files.

Offering all web design solutions be it html, wordpress, woocommerce and and everything inbetween, we will look after you. Registering your domain, hosting, designing or developing, to supporting the finished product. Websites are ongoing, it doesn’t stop with the web design. Especially if you have a wordpress website. WordPress is very mindful of security and updates often. With each update, any applications that are used on your website need updating too.

E-commerce has taken off over the past few years with businesses offering a larger range of products at discounted prices by not paying rent. Then you have the shopfronts that have websites to remain competitive with the online stores. Handy solutions like Shopify make websites not too hard to navigate by merchants who want to run their own website.

You can choose an html landing page if you don’t have a lot of content. It also will keep your website fast and lean.


Search engine optimisation or SEO, is the process of maximizing the number of visitors to a particular website by ensuring that the site appears high on the list of results returned by a search engine. SEO is definitely a marathon not a sprint and you need someone that knows their stuff in this area as staying on top of Google policies and procedures is something that the average person doesn’t have time nor the inclination to do. Fortunately this is all part of our the WANAus Web Design services.
