Sparkle development for the next update is very much in progress, but development is always a long, slow process. It will be worth the wait.
While we continue development, we thought we should begin addressing a problem with two faces:
We are very proud to introduce today sparklecafe.com, a new site that offers freely downloadable website designs. We aren’t calling these “themes”, because every Sparkle design is always fully editable.
In celebration of this launch we’re offering a special 50% discount until August 9th 2015, head over to our store to take advantage of it!
For the initial launch of Sparklecafe we have been blessed to be able to work with some amazing designers.
Without further ado, here they are.
Sparkle will be of great help to designers, especially graphic designers. When I design a web page with Sparkle I can concentrate on design and concept. Sparkle is familiar and intuitive, it feels like using Illustrator.
Sparkle is great tool when you need a simple site. The editing is faster than on web-based alternatives and you have many more possibilities.
Sparkle is a super easy and design-friendly Mac app with which you can create gorgeous web designs that really work! Try to imagine that your Photoshop layout works once you have finished it, this is what Sparkle does ;)
I believe Sparkle has the most powerful combination of simplicity and possibillities and is the most straightforward tool for webdesign out there now. Only with Sparkle I feel complete freedom for creativity without giving up on perfectly clean code and up to date looking results.
Sparkle loves design and is striving to become the best visual tool to create websites.
We will soon be adding more articles with example websites and more thoughts on visual web development.
