The term Rio Grande valley Web Design refers to a whole range of capabilities, disciplines and skills in designing, producing and maintaining websites. As the term indicates, it includes many areas of web design – authoring, graphics, user experience and user interfaces, search engine optimization, standardization of codes, proprietary software and many more aspects. Web design primarily relates to the design process concerning the front-end design that involves web layout and content rollout (referred to as client side). In that sense, some areas of web design have an overlap with web engineering when you broadly refer to web design or development because professional web designers are required to possess great degree of knowledge regarding web accessibility guidelines.
The History of the Web and its Evolution spanning two decades
The history of web design is fairly recent; however its impact is seen from a technological standpoint linking it other tech areas such as graphic design and user interface. In the two decades or so since the Web made its debut, it has greatly impacted everyday lives; can you imagine the Internet without graphics, music and interactive language?
In the early 1980s, Tim Berners-Lee, an independent contractor employed with CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research came up with the idea of a project based on a concept known as ‘hypertext’ – the term ‘hypertext’ refers to the display of text on a computer screen or any other electronic device with linked references to further text that can be revealed level by level progressively depending upon the readers requirement – which would facilitate information to be updated and shared among colleagues and fellow workers. The prototype he made was called ‘Enquire’. A moderately successful user experience followed and opened the door to a world of opportunities.
In 1989, Berners-Lee seized the opportunity of merging hypertext with Internet; lo and behold, the Worldwide Web came into existence although it took a further two to three years before viewing of information or web pages was made possible by a line-mode browser.
In 1996, Microsoft came up with its first browser, a competitive usability tool with its own tags and features. The world woke up to terms like HTML mark-up, plug-ins, widgets, midgets, motion graphics and many, many more.
