Ohk! so that was spot on.  Well, website designing simply means designing every aspect of how the website looks like. Where will the logo appear and how will the menu looks like. From the nitty-gritty of designing every pixel that comes around, website designing requires a lot of hardwork, dedication and perseverance. From the appealing website you see to boring designs, every thing is literally ‘designed’ to get the best results.
