Yesterday, Google introduced a new tool to its extensive range of products & services, and this time Google designed and developed explicitly for the web designers’ community.
Let me to introduce you to Google Web Designer – a powerful tool that lets you easily create interactive and cross-platform HTML5-based designs and vector-style artwork using an ‘integrated visual and code interface’.
Create engaging, interactive HTML5 & CSS3 based designs and motion graphics that can run on any device. Google Web Designer Features and Offers:
- Full 3D authoring environment utilizing CSS3
- Automated and intuitive design tools to let you create animated HTML5 in Canvas
- Two Animation Modes; Basic animation & Advanced animation
- Publish designed ads directly to DoubleClick Studio or AdMob
- Full Design Suite; In-built illustration tools
- Choice of either Design View or Code View
- Full 3D authoring environment
Create and manipulate 3D content utilizing an array of tools and the power of CSS3. Rotate objects and even 2D designs along any axis, visualizing 3D transformations and translations as you author.
While a visual tool is helpful, it can never represent your creativity, imagination and vision in full. That’s why you can flip back and forth between Design View and Code View as you work, immediately seeing any changes made to code reflected back in your designs.
Import assets from any other creative suite or use the built-in illustration tools to create vector-style artwork – keeping your designs light. To create new HTML tags in your designs. The Pen tool lets you draw lines and curves by creating anchor points which are then connected by either straight or curved lines. Closed paths can also be created, to create shapes of great complexity. Along with the Drawing straight lines
Easy ad workflow
Google Web Designer makes it simple to publish ads through any platform. Choose from DoubleClick Studio or AdMob, or go for the Generic option to push content through any other ad network. No coding required.
HTML5 is a universal language for building beautiful, engaging content that can run across desktops, smartphones, and tablets. We think that Google Web Designer will be the key to making HTML5 accessible to people throughout the industry, getting us closer to the goal of “build once, run anywhere.” – Sean Kranzberg, Lead Engineer, Google Web Designer
