What Is Website Design?

Web Development Solutions

Website design is very closely linked to the development, as this is often where a website begins its journey. Design focuses on the way that a website looks, feels and how it is used. What colours are best, what images work and the overall user experience are all taken into consideration. Most importantly our designers at Bizzexpose situated in Durban work with the brand as a whole in mind, ensuring that we create a consistent and unified brand identity across all mediums. Designers make use of tools such as Adobe Photoshop to create beautiful, easy-to-use website designs that our development team make work on the web.

Web designers work closely with our Account Executives and Brand Strategists to understand the unique requirements of each of our clients, before creating a website information hierarchy that guides the design process. From there, wireframes are created and approved, before the design stage begins. Many design principles are used to create powerful websites that look good and perform well, from balance to colour, layout, style and space.

At Bizzexpose we follow a strict process to develop a full website mock-up for our clients to approve. This gives our clients a chance to see the vision for the website before development begins. Once the design is finalised and the mock-up is signed off, it is typically sent on to one of our developers, who will use the approved design to program the website behind-the-scenes and make it work beautifully!


At Bizzexpose, our business is split into two departments, design and development. Our designers don’t develop, and our developers don’t design. It is this process that allows the individual to be a master in their field and not a “jack of all trades”. As you can see, both web development and design play vital roles in the creation of a website. While it is possible to find people who can do both, it is almost always best to find a team that consists of a talented designer and a skilled developer. This will ensure that your website is a success from the very beginning all the way until the final touches have been finalised and your website goes live! It will also ensure that your website looks amazing but works perfectly as well.
