It is, instead, a practice philosophically different from simple web design. Advanced web design consists of web authoring practices that are rhetorically aware, dynamic, and user-centered. Such practices are crucially based upon being conscious of one’s audience and purpose. Since those concepts are a core part of the rhetorical approach, it is ideal to have a professional writer doing such work.
