  • Put Straight! 8 Amazing Sites Created With: Webydo, a Code-free Platform for Professional Designers

    Tools are what drives the web design industry. I do know a handful of people who honestly tell me they design each and every site using just their vi: or Notepad Plus. But I know hundreds of people who embrace modern tools to get their work done without sacrificing quality. In a new series here at Noupe we’ll be taking a look at the various solutions available for those designers who don’t hide behind ideological walls and are open to evolve. These solutions have come along a way from the Geocities of the Nineties to the online design platforms some of them are today. They are no longer an overly simplistic way of getting sites online without even the slightest knowledge. Instead they have become elaborate, feature-rich design tools in their own right. Our little series will focus on sites created with the online branch of web design software. We will takle a look at how they look and how functional and modern and state of the art they are. We start with Webydo, the code-free online web design platform for professional designers.
