Website Development – Designs by Ron

Web development is the building and maintenance of websites; it’s the work that happens behind the scenes to make a website look great, work fast and perform well with a seamless user experience.

Website Design and Development with ALL the critical criteria

When I hear the term “website designer” tossed out I tend to cringe. You don’t design a website; you develop one. At times it befuddles me to consider or even think that someone would design a website and then pass it off to a search engine optimization team. The way I see it any designer worth his weight would be familiar with and certified within search engine optimization. Along with the layout, design and appearance of a website; it’s one of the, if not the the most, important aspect of any website, and as such should be implemented from the foundation up.

Content should be properly coded, images should be properly optimized and titled, meta-info should be embedded with the images, all text should be properly coded, there’s title tags, alt tags, no-follow tags and so forth. Any website should be developed, not designed. At least I feel so.

Web development can be broken down into three layers: client-side coding (frontend), server-side coding (backend) and database technology….


Client-side scripting, or frontend development, refers to everything that the end user experiences directly. Client-side code executes in a web browser and directly relates to what people see when they visit a website. Things like layout, fonts, colours, menus and contact forms are all driven by the frontend.


Server-side scripting, or backend development, is all about what goes on behind the scenes. The backend is essentially the part of a website that the user doesn’t actually see. It is responsible for storing and organizing data, and ensuring that everything on the client-side runs smoothly by communicating with the frontend.

Database technology

Websites also rely on database technology. The database contains all the files and content that are necessary for a website to function, storing it in such a way that makes it easy to retrieve, organize, edit and save. The database runs on a server, and most websites typically use some form of relational database. (RDBMS).

As a web developer I build and maintain websites; and unique among designers, I specialize in both the frontend and backend. We focus upon building a product that meets both the client’s needs and those of the customer or end user. Through in-depth collaboration with clients we can understand their vision of how should the final website look and function?

Client-side code executes in a web browser and directly relates to what people see when they visit a websiteThe backend is essentially the brains behind the face (the frontend). Within the backend we build and and configure the technology needed to power the frontend, consisting of three parts: a server, an application and a database.

Proper backend coding ensures that the frontend is fully functional, and it is our precision that makes sure that the server, application and database all communicate with each other. Typical backend development tasks include creating, integrating and managing the database, building server-side software using backend frameworks, developing and deploying content management systems (for a blog, for example), as well as working with web server technologies, API integration and operating systems.

With Designs by Ron you have a full stack developer on your team, someone who understands, and can work across, the “full stack” of technology: i.e. both the frontend and the backend. We are experts in every stage of the web development process and are well-equipped to get hands on, while also guiding you on best practices and the strategic implementation thereof.

Analysis • Planning • Content Research • Design/Development/Testing • Deployment

Often you hear the terminology website development and website designed used interchangeably, however they aren’t one in the same. You might hear the terms web development and web design used interchangeably, but these are two very different things. Think of it this way. A developer and a designer are building a house. The developer installs the furnace, the foundation and the structure itself, while the designer paints the wall, hangs the trim and lays the carpet.

HTML and CSS are actually not technically programming languages; they're just page structure and style information. But before moving on to JavaScript and other true languages, you need to know the basics of HTML and CSS, as they are on the front end of every web page and application.Within a site’s creation, it is the web developer’s job to take this design and develop it into a live, fully functional website. A frontend developer takes the visual design as provided by the web designer and builds upon it using coding languages such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Utilizing this website creation process, there are now two people involved, and we haven’t even thrown search engine optimization into the mix yet.

Doesn’t it make more sense to develop a website with all the critical criteria right from the onset? Of course it does, and with Designs by Ron you get just that. A developer with designer skills and know-how utilizing certified s.e.o. training into the mix; resulting in a more polished website upon deployment.

Before the onset of any part of your site, we collaborate any user site expectations, and develop a sitemap and flow map to follow. We are proficient and certified within Adobe Cs Design Software (the apex of the industry-standard design tools). Thereby we then initiate a prototype and wireframe mockup your site, and after this design is created, we utilize the latest front-end technologies including PHP, HTML5, CSS, and jQuery to develop a professionally coded, easy-to-maintain and update website.

A responsive website adapts the layout of the site to the viewing environment by using fluid, percentage grids, flexible images, and CSS media queries. At Designs by Ron our websites are designed “mobile-first” to allow your business to not only perform better within search engine queries, but to maintain a responsive appearance across multiple platforms and devices, thereby targeting mobile web users, whom now constitute more than half of all online users at any given moment!
