Best Website Builder in 2019

What's the Best Website Builder in 2019? As a long-time Website Designer, (having designed websites for over 16 years!), I believe that in 2019, there is a clear front-runner in website builders – Wix. I've designed in Wordpress, Joomla, Dreamweaver, Shopify, Squarespace, and tons of other platforms over the past 16 years, and none of them compare to the Wix editor. I discovered Wix about 6 years ago, after it had converted from Flash to HTML5. The first time I used it, I fell in love, it seemed to good to be true.

Graphic Designer Tip: Illustrator Linked Files in PDF & Large File Sizes

Just a quick tip from my Print Production partner – we thought we'd share this as Graphic Designers and Website Designers – we have run into issues with extra-large PDFs being exported from Adobe Illustrator: If you click this the "Include Linked Files" on when saving Illustrator PDF files, it will make large files and embed the images. This can lead to some PDF issues as it creates very large file sizes which cannot be emailed to clients easily. We think the wording is a bit confusing on this, and a new feature. We think it should instead say "embed images" as that makes more sense! But, here's our note for future reference if anyone is experiencing large PDF files when saving from Illus

Best Catalog Design Company We love to design product catalogs, especially for businesses in the gardening arena such as seed companies, garden supply stores, and garden centers. Check out the latest catalog design we worked on for SandiaSeed.com, an amazing woman-owned seed company that shells out New Mexican Green Chile seeds, hot pepper seeds, and Heirloom tomato seeds.
