Web DesignWeb Design is what we look at while searching the Internet on a daily basis. It is the design that makes up logos, web pages, and other aspects of the Internet. It can contain animation, but is not specific to animation. The pixelation quality can be extremely low in web design. For example: Have you ever tried to take a picture that looks great on the screen, but then tried to print it and it looks all grainy? This is because the computer does not need a high pixelation factor in order to produce a nice looking product. The aspects that come into play when creating a movie or printing images are much more complex and will require richer pixelation.
Not all web design is based on the images or things that you see on a web page. There are web designers that help the website run. These people write “code” in order to help the website function. These codes are the instructions for the site. It is what is put into place in order to have specific backgrounds, images, or information pop-up at a specific place or time. It is extremely complex, and while you could be a great graphic web designer and not truly know how to write code, you could also be a code web designer and not really be that great at designing logos or attractive layouts.
Game DesignGame Designers take what you learn as a web designer and concentrate those skills specifically into game development. This means that the designers focus on mobile devices, consoles, and computers and how individuals will want to play their games on them. They develop their games based on the audience and the platform. A moving game is very different than a still web page.
The concentration of a game designer is on the development of the game the characters, the scenery, the weapons, or the animation. There are a lot of aspects that go into developing a game and this is why it generally takes months if not years to complete the process. It may seem like there are new developments in games often, but think about some of the popular games such as N.O.V.A, and think about how quickly people try to beat the games. That is months or years of work that someone could potentially have mastered in a weekend. Game designers have a lot to do to make sure their games are challenging enough to be entertaining, but not too challenging to the point that people lose interest.
