    webdesign or web development ?

    what is web design and web development?


    is web design the frond-end?
    html
    css
    visual

    andn web development is the backend?
    coldfusion,php,mysql rubynrails etc.


    in my opionion in web design is the visualization,
    and im finding where i belong, i really know adobe photoshop and illustrator.
    and knowledge of html & CSS but i really dont know the color and typography theories
    but in web development you just build while in web design there are rules to follow
    like color and typography.

    and web designers colaborate with web developers,any feedbacks,would help.

    and wordpress CMS belongs?

    and agencies are now hiring web designers or web developers? to convert PSD to wordpress?

    The lines blur more every day, but ya, that about sums it up. I see you snuck in that Wordpress question again. It's both.
    On the PSD thing. You don't really convert them "to Wordpress". You don't "convert" them at all. You slice out what you need and add them to your HTML. Then, you add PHP to the template that includes custom Wordpress functions. I think it's important to understand the distinction, though. Going from PSD has nothing to do with Wordpress. It's just a visualization of what a single page might look like. You're grabbing the items you need from it and adding it to the structure of the page. At that point, it could become a static site, Wordpress, any other CMS, no CMS, a custom CMS or any of a million other possibilities.
