Website Builders = Impossible Utopia?

The “Easy” in Website Builders is the Problem

Good Design

Minimal, uncluttered, modern type-based logo, and more

Good Design

To Wrap Up:

Redditors on Website Builders versus Independent Web Design

How is a self-coded site (for me that includes WordPress, if you customize themes & plugins) better than a page created on Squarespace?

How Relevant Will Independent Web Design Continue to Be with the Rise of Website Builders?

“Anyone who cares about having a good website will get it done properly.”

“Anyone who acknowledges their business should have a website but doesnt give a damn about it would never have gone to a professional even if these builders didnt exist. (Theyd have gone to the guy selling websites for £99 on Gumtree.)”

Fallout between MailChimp and Shopify last week

Thank you all!
