The User Interface
When you design a user interface you are creating a structure for how the website will be perceived intellectually. It includes things like the theme or metaphor of the site – how readers will know what to click and what path to take through the site. It also includes information architecture to classify and structure the site.

The Visual Elements
When you design the visual elements of a website, you are building the look and feel of the site. This includes the graphics, color, styles, and layout. Things like the elements of design and the principles of design.

The Site Structure
When you design the site structure, you are designing how the site will be built. This is the HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and any programming you do for a website. Most of this type of design is informed by the decisions made for the user interface and the visual elements, but it’s just as important a design step as the other two.
