For regular people, the word “path” refers to a route or track between two places. But for us designers, paths are vector based-line drawings connected by anchor points.
The word “channel” might remind people of their favourite TV channels and shows, but for designers, channels are separate layers of color information in Photoshop.
Similarly, the word “tracking” might remind you of GPS or Google Maps or the time when your over-protective boyfriend/girlfriend stalked you, but for designers, it refers to the adjustment of space for groups of letters and blocks of text.
Website-builder platform Wix has come up with a series of fun illustrations titled “Non-Designers vs. Designer” that highlight all these differences and more. Check them out below.
