Hands up if you’ve ever been on a boring website. No graphics. No pleasing colour schemes. No pretty, yet easy to navigate titles. Is there anything worse? Nothing turns users away faster than a bland, dull site. So what can you do if your website is looking a little … ho-hum? Download a few web design tools, of course! And with the whole of the internet at your disposal, you won’t be short of ideas. So which ones are right for you?
Read on to discover 3 best web design tools in 2020.
What’s a web design tool?
Remember when you were in school, and you got to play ‘Paint’ on the computer? Weren’t they good times?
Remember the ‘spray can’ option, or the ‘brush’? Remember the totally rubbish self-portrait you would draw of yourself, and how satisfying it was to rub it out?
That was an early version of a web design tool. And you thought you were just goofing off.
In simple terms, a web design tool is a software program that is used to make your website look good. Think slideshows, images, graphics, layout, the whole lot.
If it helps your page look amazing, then it’s a web design tool.
First web design tool – WordPress
It’s an oldie but a goodie. WordPress is still one of the most popular web design tools out there. In fact, WordPress produces about 70 million new posts and 77 million new comments each month. Not bad for an old girl, huh?
WordPress has over a thousand in-built themes (you can also use Gutenize to build it) and plugins so you can customise your page. Install, edit, and optimise your site any way you please. It’s so user-friendly even a monkey could use it!
And the best part? Google loves WordPress! Thanks to their constantly updating plugins, WordPress websites are always improving their SEO – meaning that your site will rank higher on search engines.
What if you’re looking for something a little more advanced? Something that all the bigwigs use?
Then look no further than InVision Studio. Even the professionals are calling it ‘the complete package’.
InVision Studio is simple to use and creates stunning websites. It also has a speedy response rate – a huge plus for those web designers on the go!
If you’re needing a web tool that will allow for more complex designs, then InVision Studio is best for you. It ‘holds your hand’ during the design process – just decide on what user interface you want, and InVision will help you work out the rest.
What kind of blog would this be if we didn’t mention Photoshop?
Photoshop is THE TOOL for all web designers – from novices to veterans.
Looking for endless colour options? Photoshop! What about smooth gradients? Photoshop! How about a rainbow unicorn flying over a beautiful field of dandelions? You guessed it – Photoshop. Er, maybe for the advanced users, anyway.
Photoshop allows you to create a completely unique website based on a digital artwork you’ve drawn. So if you’re new to design, this may not be the tool for you.
