I am a creative professional who is passionate about my work which ranges from branding and print based design through to web design. My design philosophy is simple. I love good, clean, crisp design. Design with purpose, and I enjoy experimenting and using elements from different influences to create something unique. I have a keen eye for beautiful typography and I like to keep abreast of design trends that are constantly changing and evolving.
I have spent most of my career working in advertising agencies or in-house for corporate companies and I now work full time as a freelance designer and run my own business Brown Owl Creative which is a web design and graphic design company based in Essex, UK.
As a designer I spend most of my days working between Illustrator or Indesign and Photoshop, with the odd dabble in Dreamweaver and Flash. What Wix has enabled me to do is take full control as a designer and build the type of websites that I love. I no longer have the need to involve a developer but can rather focus on designing websites and let Wix do the rest. The Wix editor is very design-focused and user-friendly and I don’t feel the need to use Dreamweaver anymore.
The best thing about using Wix is that I have full creative control. I can still do all my design in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, and upload all my images and backgrounds into the library. I like the fact that the Wix editor is design-focused and you can concentrate on the visual aspect of the design rather than the development.
I have had fantastic feedback about my website, only positive comments. I would recommend Wix to other designers such as myself, who are passionate about web design and graphic design, but are not necessarily developers and are looking for a platform where they can use their creative skills to design websites.
My favorite Wix website is www.lauradifrancesco.com – I like her illustrating style and the website is clean and simple.
