Early users of the internet will recall that the first generation of websites were all custom-made. This individuality made the process more complex and more expensive, which is likely to have slowed down the initial rate of company investment in launching a website. Even though one stop shops provide simple-to-use templates in the current market, using website design software tools to create individual websites remains a booming industry. At least the latter option is now a matter of choice rather than necessity.

With so much business shifting online during pandemic lockdowns, far greater attention was paid to website appearances and functionality – by any company’s variety of stakeholders and by the companies themselves. This recent focus brought home a variety of reasons in favour of individually designed rather than off-the-peg sites. They include:

  • To make a better first impression
  • To stand out more among competitors
  • Better than average SEO and user functionality
  • A one-off design creates a perception of tailored services, rather than “one size fits all”
  • Styles become dated: an individual design can be modernised when required, not only when a template has been upgraded by someone else.

Website designers are supported by a growing number of sophisticated web design software tools. None can be the best for every aspect of web design, and a single site could therefore require the use of more than one piece of software. Also, some website design software tools may be better than others at integrating with certain non-design software, such as those delivering ecommerce, relationship marketing or database management, for example.

A professional website designer will know how to interpret a client’s requirements and prioritise them against the relative strengths of different software design tools. A recent article, originally published by Webflow.com, took a look at eleven web design tools worth checking out.
