Development and Design

An Invisible Dance of Codes & Graphics

Development and UX Design are intertwined. One doesn’t exist without the other.


In essence, UX design refers to both the aesthetic portion of the site and its overall user experience. Developers, on the other hand, take UX designs and actually build a functioning site from it using “codes” or programming languages to transform the designs into interactive components. It’s the invisible dance that users catch a glimpse of from the moment they open a site—all the way to checkout.
