What Is Google Web Designer And How It Can Help You

Either you can learn coding and master yourself or you can hire someone when it comes to create web design for your blog or website. But this require you to either spend your time or money. There are numerous tools available online that can help you make your web design easily with some cons. But what I am going to share today is about one of the tool recommended by Google and launched by Google. It is a free tool.

I like this tool as Google Web Designer is not a web based tool. It is completely standalone software for both Mac and Windows platforms. GWD also known as Google Web Designer is more like WYSIWYG “What You See Is What You Get” editor. You just need to place images and arrange those images and let it create HTML and CSS code itself. GWD was launched last year.

I recommend this tool as it helps you to create HTML 5 Adverts. WYSIWYG editors have a steeper learning curve and results not fit for all browsers. But GWD is an exception as it is based on HTML 5 and CSS 3 and offers cross browser support.

I have been using this tool. you just need to spend a little time to get something extra.

Now let`s see :

What is Google Web Designer (GWD)

You may have a glimpse of what exactly Google Web Designer is. It is a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor that allows you to create interactive HTML5-CSS3 based motion graphics and designs. You just need to place images and it will generate code, GWD easily works with HTML5-CSS3 code.

The installation

Google Web Designer is a free standalone software supporting Mac OS X 10.7.x+ or Windows 7+.

GWD interface

If you use this tool, you will get feeling that it is a mix of features of Adobe Creative Suite and Microsoft Expression.

Where can you use GWD?

I have used this tool and from my experience I can say that it is no everything for a web designer. But it allows you to edit webpages, still it lacks text content creation feature.

GWD is great for creating banners and animation ads. So, I call it "Google Ad Designer".

Why GWD might be good for you:

  •     It is free.
  •     Good interface.
  •     Good to create banner and Ad design.
  •     Create prototypes.
  •     Create animations.

Where GWD lacks:

  •     Can’t open independent files.
  •     Only good for animated banners.
  •     Difficult for clumsy use.


Now you know that Google Web Designer is an interactive tool and you cna create banner ads on it.

If you are looking for web design solution then GWD has some limitations and may not be best for it.

But we hope that Google Web Designer will get better sooner and Google will fix drawbacks to compete with Adobe Dreamweaver.
