Analysis on the difference of graphic and Web design

graphic design and Web page design, but the difference is so big, that's not like the nature of cats and the Tiger, they are cats, but they are not the same species, there is a big difference.

During this time, I have been doing some product design about Impression, such as photo books, calendars and so on. Product design career change came from a Web page, I often wonder, graphic design and Web page design, but the difference is so big, that's not like the nature of cats and the Tiger, they are cats, but they are not the same species, there is a big difference.


Now let me see the same as Visual communication design, difference between them.

1. Visual elements


Graphic design and Web design in color use color mode to completely different, because late implementation depends on printing in graphic design, so using the CMYK color mode, and the page according to its method of imaging using the RGB color model. Color application for graphic design focused on Visual impact and Visual flow of the boot (at this point with Web design BANNER design), Web design (product class) focus more on information structures, and if the colors are too strong, it is very easy to cause visual fatigue.


We usually in design process in the, plane design of font selection more free some, without worried late achieved of problem, all of text last will output for graphics for printing, and page design on needs consider of more full, and in font of selection range Shang also is small, to let output of finished size does not server caused pressure, based on HTML of characteristics, all font are is according to user operation system within default font and set of, certainly in recent years as technology of evolution and development, The gap is gradually narrowing, HTML5 API to personalize the font currently used and do not need to personalize the final output of the font as a graphic, without increasing the back pressure at the same time, greatly enhance the user experience, it was so good.


From the graphics used, graphic design Web design-rich, diversified, particularly for products for Web design, modular design concept becomes more apparent, is also true of Visual presentation, graphic with the graphics is not required to take into account the late realization, at the point it is evident to all. What size unit to use when we designed, graphic design when using the dimensioning is the physical dimensions of the concept, such as inches, centimeters, millimeters, and Web page using pixels.

3. information carrier 

4. browse mode

Plane design of belonging to progressive type of browse way, cannot on throughout browse of process for diversification series, page design has scroll article Xia pulled, and button links jump, diversification of browse information way, in has also a information schema of conditions Xia, information Zhijian of series sexual more rich, user select information of freedom more big, but plane design also natural has its advantage is located, like usually I in design photos book this class products of when, on is obviously of found, this category of products in computer monitor Shang for read, Better printing became a real book to read better, and more favorite and memorable.

5. information dissemination


Plane design belonging to comparison traditional of information media design, General will through posted, and sales, and mailing delivery, forms for spread, such spread of way range small and cost high, relatively in this aspects page design of information spread capacity is very of strong, but rely on Yu third party media of support, plane design is has more widely of by all crowd, different of age layer for paper or books of information accept capacity always strong Yu network media of, after all network information gets of will will exists a learning cost, Popularization of network information media and Terminal in the future the continuous improvement of the user experience, in terms of audience, in my opinion the gap will get smaller.


This two species design forms has with different of user experience, we should according to different design content, select correctly of design forms upgrade user experience, above these just personal on plane and page design of some superficial awareness, also as remains hopes everyone can share out themselves for design of ideas, reference a plane design master Alan Chan of a words "do creative most important is positioning clear, if positioning clearly target clear, many creative on will natural created out. It's like you're looking for a girl who likes and ran to the bar and looked, it's too much trouble. To determine what kind of girl you are looking for, to the bar, Oh, blah, blah. --Much easier! ”
