I have worked most weekends of my life. Sometimes it is motivated by practicality, and sometimes driven by sheer habit and compulsion. Sometimes it’s hard to separate the two but there it is — weekends in the office are my default position. Perhaps for this reason, I was drawn this week to a set of career tips by The Creative Group, the very wise specialized staffing firm, about how to minimize weekend work. The Creative Group presents quite nicely pragmatic ways to avoid unnecessary weekend labors. I thought they were also addressing the compulsive aspect — since one piece of advice is headlined ‘Seek Help’. Turns out they meant to hire freelancers, rather than a mental health professional.

“You Can’t Use Up Creativity. The More You Use, The More You Have.” -Maya AngelouRead More
For years, the biggest obstacle facing web designers has been the burden imposed by coding. Many don’t know how to do it all or only have a narrow skillset in the field, thus limiting what they could do on the design side and/or being forced to outsource what they couldn’t handle on their own. And even for those who can both design and code, the latter takes up an average of 70% of the website construction process, thus taking away from the creative design process.
That all changed with the emergence of Webydo, which gives designers freedom of creativity to publish professional websites and has now grown into a creative community of more than 75K designers.
With online design software that eliminates the need for coding, designers can create pixel perfect sites with high functionality while maintaining creative control over the process from start to finish. The intuitive interface allows designers to drag-and-drop all the creative elements onto any area of the screen, plus widgets which can add advanced functionality like ecommerce. And while you can start creating from a blank canvas, Webydo also offers readymade design inspirations which are completely customizable to aid in the process.
Webydo is primarily aimed at professional designers who already have a working knowledge of how to use other software programs like Photoshop and InDesign, but users new to the industry will be able to learn the ropes after watching the tutorials and starting the design process. Built-in features like Full White Label, a client billing feature, and a dashboard that enables easy access to hundreds of clients’ websites are also included to aid in the professional toolkit for designers to work with.
Perhaps most enticing is the fact that Webydo users comprise, as we noted above, a huge and constantly expanding community of over 75K designers who have a direct say in how the software will continue to grow. This not only provides a great resource for creative brainstorming and inspiration, but also ensures that Webydo remains on the cutting edge of the web design industry.
