The terms web design and web development ,in my own definition, is usually used to refer to the processes used for the creation of webpage(s) or website which is intended to be registered and accessed via the internet.
Though different in terms of what they actually do, they are sometimes used interchangeably to describe one thing.
But in most cases, web design and web development are separated.
Web designers are believed to create digital or graphical look and feel in the form of mockups to depict how the website is to be built like. There is usually no coding involved.
In other words, web designers are like artists. They use graphical tools like photoshop, corew draw, dreamweaver, etc to draw the website as described by the person that wants it to be or in form of suggestion to the client.
While web developers are the ones that take the design made by the web designer and actually code (develop) the website using the appropriate frameworks (or coding languages) into what has been drawn by the designer.
Simply put, web developers codes the website that will be taken to the internet for internet browsers to access.
