A Little Background
I’ll let you in on a secret: we’ve been working on a new concept in web design for around 2 years, behind the scenes. A couple of years ago we realized that some of the issues with web design simply came down to dogma, people doing things a certain way because “that’s just how things are done.”
We set out to build the ultimate web design platform that allowed beginners and experts to build *amazing* websites, as fast and easy as possible.
The process started with these questions: “What is the ideal way to build a website? How will websites be created in 10 years?”
In the end, we created something we are calling DMS, which stands for Design Management System.
The concept is that this system allows you to ‘manage’ your design through a meticulously constructed user interface that gets out of your way and allows you to focus on your work.
What will DMS do for you?
While we won’t be revealing any details of DMS features until the official launch, I can tell you a few things about what it will do for you and your website(s).
Here are a few of the advantages compared to themes:
- Customization will be easier than you thought possible
- Creating ‘Child Themes’ will be as easy as building a website
Once you build one beautiful website with DMS, you can convert it to a theme that you can then market, give away or reuse yourself. I can’t say too much now, but a goal in development was to make traditional ‘theming’ obsolete by making it possible with DMS in 5% of the time.
Here are a few of the advantages compared to Drag and Drop builders:
- Drag and Drop only fast, easy, and beautiful (i.e. professional)
WYSIWYG systems never got it right. They force you to reinvent the wheel and redesign things from scratch. They also don’t support cool effects or transitions, as this requires coding and professional designers. DMS solves this through the Section API which allows developers to build sections that YOU can then drag and drop wherever you want. It’s a serious win/win.
- Powered by a fully featured CMS
As always, PageLines will be powered by WordPress and will support all 26000+ plugins. DMS adds a layer designed for robust design management while leaving the content organization and heavy lifting to WP. This makes DMS the ultimate way to build websites combining ‘easy’ with ‘powerful.’
