Designers have long needed a GUI environment that synchs up with their skill sets in balance with the requirements of good Web design practices. Many individual software developers as well as large companies have worked hard to create such a sophisticated tool. And while many have been helpful along the way, we still appear to lack the ultimate designer software for streamlined, contemporary, standards-based Web design.
Enter project meteor
Project meteor is a campaign that is asking designers and software developers to vote and participate in the ongoing encouragement of high-quality graphical development environments built expressly with Web designers in mind.
What do you think?
Here are a few questions to foster discussion on this long-debated, long-unsolved topic:
- Are existing software products providing you a streamlined way, as a designer, to do your job efficiently and in-step with contemporary best practices?
- If yes to question 1, which products do you use and why do you feel they fit into your workflow?
- Are you frustrated by the limitations of existing products?
- If yes to question 3, what are the limitations and issues you encounter with existing Web design software offerings?
