Web design is a branch extension of graphic design that deals innovatively with visual digital and new media of sorts. A website is the online promotional and representational identity of any given brand, personality, cause or organization on the web.
Personalities, brands, organizations and causes, as well as other types of individuals, groups or companies from various different roles and practices in life, turn to websites and web pages as their online interactive visual and informative representations of their public or portrayed character. Each individual or parties’ website is meant to present itself as a platform that displays and promotes the unique attributes of that particular party. These websites are ideally the primary and principle platform wherein potential fans, clients, seekers and browsers should land on in the pursuit of information, updates and contact/interaction with the said parties. Therefore, the fact that these websites should be planned, designed and laid out in a manner that is visually matched and relevant to the original brand itself is of the utmost importance.
