Editor X is a powerful, flexible and seamless web design platform made specifically for designers
Made specifically for designers and agencies, Editor X is a powerful web creation platform that makes it seamless to build fully-responsive websites in a short period of time.
It gives you developer-level control in a designer’s world.
Its effortlessly smooth drag and drop interface offers total design freedom, enabling intuitive and flexible customisation at any screen size; with or without code. “It gives you developer-level control in a designer’s world,” explains Imogen Borrill, an Editor X aficionado and co-founder of Lumo Design Studio.
As a full-stack solution, Editor X provides every tool needed to easily transform what may seem like an overwhelming website concept into the real deal; from its robust code-free CMS to its built-in eCommerce, blogging, booking, business, marketing and SEO capabilities. As a result, there’s no need to worry about plugins, versions and security; with everything readily available and accessible all-in-one place.
Even with an entirely custom website build, every designer knows how difficult it can be to get the breakpoints across every screen size exactly right. With , however, designers can choose between a variety of design tools as well as a CSS grid to seamlessly create intricate layouts that adjust across all breakpoints; with total control. “For the longest time, I could never make a website because there was nothing that allowed me to attack a website like that.” adds visual artist and director Shane Griffin. For those looking to venture into the world of code or collaborate with a developer, also houses an open development platform, which designer and developer Adrian Twarog explains can save “not just an hour or two, but days and weeks” by allowing “you to design and develop at the same time.”
If in need of even more advanced design and editing capabilities, has you covered with those too. The ‘Photo Studio’ offers a multitude of customisation options for images, from the ability to edit and enhance their source to removing and replacing backgrounds, controlling sharpness and adding filters. Videos can be embedded from any platform and their display options can be tailored directly on the canvas, meaning there is no need for obnoxious borders or third-party branding.
While Editor X can be used to create websites from an entirely blank canvas, it does supply a wide range of designer-made templates for those times when a little inspiration is needed. Each template showcases a variety of features and layouts, providing an accessible foundation that can be used as-is or taken apart and installed with any design, typeface or structure. The advanced capabilities of Editor X, as well as further inspiration, can be found on its ‘Showroom’ page, which presents a broad selection of sites made with the platform. One that particularly stands out is that of the iconic designer, illustrator, muralist and author Timothy Goodman, which through its interactive, constantly-moving landing page, is a million miles away from what has previously seemed to be possible with website building platforms.
Despite its seemingly never-ending feature list, of which we’ve only touched on in this article, is constantly rolling out new releases and updates. On the horizon is a plethora of collaboration tools designed to further optimise teamwork and streamline workflows on the platform, including concurrent editing and live comments for team accounts. In addition, shareable design libraries have been introduced to allow teams to save, share and reuse customisable collections of typography, colour and design assets for any website within the same account.
If you’re looking to bring your vision to life online, either for a client or for yourself, Editor X is the ideal place to make it happen. The platform allows you to build and launch unlimited sites for free, with premium plans available from £15/month if you’re looking for extra features such as custom domains and online payments.
