One of the major demands of a front-end developer is staying on top of design and code trends to always present the most relevant, inviting and engaging visual experience and interaction for users. A front-end designer is responsible for combining the strictly visual work of designers with the behind-the-scenes structure created by back-end developers.

Ultimately, the front-end developer is responsible for creating, testing and implementing the workings of all the visual and interactive elements of a website.
