Web design is a concept that has appeared with the inception of the vast World Wide Web.

For being able to create and develop websites, designers were supposed to use a second language that needed to be added to the original configuration. As a result, the websites created though this means lacked a lot of features not to mention that they were somehow updated.
Once mobile devices started to develop, their manufacturers understood the importance of website creation while being on the move and as such they introduced the HTML route for making web design possible.
The situation these days is completely different from the one in the past. Many people are able to access and view various websites via their mobile phones. More than this, if you run a business and have a website developed for it, it would be also very effective for you to make this site accessible to the mobile device users.
