I taught myself website coding in 2004 in order to create a site for the band I was part of (and still play with). Around the same time, concepts such as WordPress, Squarespace, Wix and Shopify were taking their first steps towards making web design accessible to the masses.
These online website editors are now the tools of my trade. My favourite is Squarespace and most of my sites are built on this platform. I also use offline editors, e.g. Pinegrow, to amend existing websites without migrating them to new hosts. Whichever option I use, knowing how to alter the underlying code has been a valuable asset.
Some examples of my designs are shown below. Have a look at my SiteHelp website for details.
