What is web?
If we want to answer the question of what is web design, we must first know what the web is and what the web is called. The following is a very simple (and perhaps somewhat technically incorrect) definition of the web:
The World Wide Web, or WWW for short, is what we call the Internet today. Today, through a browser and by connecting to this global network, we can access all the information within it.
If you are looking for a very comprehensive and specialized definition, the World Wide Web page on Wikipedia can be useful for you. But this simple definition is enough for us to know that the Internet is a place of data to which we can connect.
What is a website?
After answering the web question, we come to the website. You must have heard website word many times. We want to explain the concept of a website with an example. Just as we rent a piece of land for life or business in the real world, so can the Internet. This means that we can rent part of the Internet and have that part for ourselves for a while.
The part that we rent on the internet and belongs to us for a while is called a website. In fact, websites are our lands on the Internet that we can use in many different ways.
What is web design?
We also got acquainted with the concept of website. Now we come to the part where we talk about the middle ground: what is web design?
Just as in the real world we use plastering, paint, cabinets, furniture and… to beautify the house, in the world of the Internet we can use tools to beautify our site.
In other words, in the online world, we have tools that we can use to build our site first and then beautify it.
In the real world, we first rent or buy land, then use concrete, cement, round bars, bricks, and so on, and finally beautify it with plaster, paint, ceramics, flooring, and so on. It is exactly the same in the web world. First we build our site by web design programming languages, and then we beautify it using tools.
So in answer to the question of what is web design, we can say very simply: Anything that helps our website look better and more beautiful is called web design.
A web designer determines how the various elements of a website, such as text, images, links, etc., are displayed, and the location of each section of the site, such as the logo, articles, menu, etc., on the web page.
