I am doing web design for small businesses mainly using PHP. The graphic design is also a small part of a web development work flow when clients need more functional website that is accessible on the internet.
Consider the following parts of website development:
- Graphic/Website Design
- Website Development & Programming
- Domain Registration
- Web Hosting Services
- Website Maintenance
- Website Security
- Website Optimization
- Website Marketing
The web design is the focus during the planning stages of building a website. It is a fraction of the web development process. Factors like the purpose of the website, your brand identity and message you want to communicate effect the design process.
