My current workflow stack is like this. 

 

1. Adobe Photoshop CC

 

2. Visual Studio Code

 

3. Canva + Crello

 

4. Camtasia Studio

 

5. WordPress

 

6. Bootstrap and Foundation CSS

 

I have mostly have the mixed projects of theme and the plugins so my stack reflects that accordingly.l I am on windows as you can tell from the stack. I someday hope to switch to the Apple. It may not be this year but somewhere down the line in future.

Feel free to post some of your work in a new topic / portfolio topic, I'm excited to see what you've made and perhaps could give some feedback.

Just use builders. I don't know to much about CSS techniques.

 

Ah, fair enough. Builders are great if you're not able to create custom designs and such (or don't know enough about HTML / CSS to build the base, for that matter).

 

I personally design from scratch, and then develop a theme out of it by coding the design and then turning it into a theme (not a child theme) by either using Advanced Custom Fields (Pro) to make sure the website content can be edited, which I prefer, or by implementing a builder.

Which is your preferred page builder?  I know few people who make use of the Divi a lot. I personally have used both Divi and Elementor. There are few others like visual composer but I find them pretty much buggy and it's not easy to be creative with them.

I really don't remember when did I last time change some design elements so I  also can't remember tools I did. I mostly choose fit design and just add content. Maybe it was Elementor.

I don't really like Visual Composer either, to be honest. I don't quite understand why it's so popular amongst WP developers. I did enjoy Divi, but it's a pain if you ever want to change to a theme NOT using Divi, because it leaves a shitload of shortcodes if you decide to get rid of your Divi theme. Elementor was fine for what it is, however.

I am currently using the Canva tool. That tool is really useful when it comes to social media content editing. You can also use it for resume creation and lot of people also use it for the printables. I have noticed that they have lot of interesting templates and images which are worth using.
