But surely only if you want an off-the-shelf generic design?
Design can be elitist, and the days of having access to creative design software are not outside the realm of the everyday. Graphic Design tools such as Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator, and web design were elitist to some extent. They required paid expensive tools and vast degrees of learning. In some cases, they enabled Designers to use this as a barrier of needing a ‘professional’ to create the desired outcome.
These DIY tools are well-performing services; Squarespace and Wix are well-made web design tool and compelling to use. Their simple but effective templates create clean and simple to build sites. Canva can put out print-quality work, and with a fraction of the time of a designer, in a WYSIWYG user interface that allows easy editing.
If you wanted a website five years ago, a web designer was required, but maybe this is no longer the starting point for a project. Many Clients use these DIY software as a starting point, as a quick website solution. But quickly find the choice overwhelming. Without knowing what to create, the decision in options and many templates can slow the process and become a sticking point on getting the site live. Designers have formal training, but not just in how to use design software, but what to do with it.
