Better software will transform the web design landscape.
For over 25 years the web has been all about code. Those that have been able to learn programming languages and wield the power of a text editor have built incredible products, and have often been rewarded handsomely.
While designers have played an important role, they’ve been more behind the scenes. Designers have always been at odds with the web development workflow, hindered by limited tools and slow-moving standards.
The next 25 years of the web will be all about design. We can make significantly more progress by opening up the power of web development to the masses. Similar to how desktop software once transformed print design, or how blogging services have revolutionized the publishing landscape, a more powerful web design software can completely change how we create for the web.
