Website Design and Development

Web design and web development ... what is the difference?

Web design is understood as "what is on stage", or what the user sees, hears, and experiences. 

Web development is understood as "what is back stage", or the programming and interactions that make the "on stage" happen.

One of Objectified's main goals and objectives is to focus on the User eXperience.  UX Design (user experience design), is a "user center approach" to web design, where the experience is designed to create a positive and rewarding interaction.  The site design needs to answer the user's questions before they are aware that they have a question.  Good UX design will encourage users to return to your site and stay on your site longer and longer.
