Content or Design – Which comes first?

When building a Website, this is the ongoing debate – Which comes first? Or which is more important – the writing or design?

Web designers would say that a website project should begin with design before anything else – it sets the tone and mood of the project.

Writers argue – Not so fast! Content is “king” and sets the direction and voice of the Web project – design will reflect that vision.

It is similar to the age-old question: Which came first the chicken or the egg?

Some scientists agree the chicken came first while some physicists say, no the egg obviously came first. So, who is correct? As it turns out – they both are.

Thusly on the design or content question, the answer is also similar – both the writing and the design are important and should work hand-in-hand to successfully complete the project.
