If you are a designer or design agency whose focus is on design, and would otherwise outsource the build phase of a client's website, then Sketchanet provides an ideal solution that allows you to keep control of the entire project lifecycle in house, and importantly to significantly reduce costs.
Imagine if the process of designing the website actually built the site for you in the background. Read on to hear from designers who are already making the most of this.
Instead of drawing up design flats, and getting those coded by an external developer, we can design directly in the Sketchanet editor, and that process builds the site for you
Studio 91 Design
"We are a design studio focused on brand and print, but we also often have clients who require websites. For the websites that fall into the 'brochure style' category, historically it was a laborious process building what was essentially the same type of website over again each time. Discovering Sketchanet totally changed the way we approach these projects - it was a perfect fit to save on time and costs.
From the creative work we have already done on each project, we have assets that can form the basis of the website design. Instead of then drawing up design flats, and getting those coded by a developer, we can design directly in the Sketchanet editor, and that process builds the site for you - totally skipping the traditional build phase. This is a massive time saver and importantly it means we retain control of the whole website life cycle."

CASE STUDY: MERCURY FX
Global currency specialist.
One of the most powerful features in Sketchanet is the ability to clone just about anything. At the click of a button, you can clone parts of a page, entire pages, or even entire websites that you have created. Studio 91 used the website cloning feature to deliver 4 similar website for their client Mercury FX. Having created the UK site, it was a simple process to clone that 3 times, and then update the content where necessary for the regional sites. The Hong Kong site even uses chinese characters. Flick through the screenshots below to see the different versions of the site.

Freelance Illustrator/Graphic Designer
"As a Graphic Designer with a background in Illustration, I've always had ambitious ideas for elaborate websites, but lack the coding knowledge to build them. Discovering Sketchanet was a godsend and I can't recommend it highly enough. Not only have I been able to build great looking, cost effective websites for my clients in next to no time, I've finally been able to build my own dream website to showcase my artwork. We are our own biggest critics, and it was vital my portfolio site looked exactly how I imagined it. Without Sketchanet I would have had to have done an intensive course in coding to get the results I achieved.
It's also a really user friendly platform and I've been able to teach some of my computer illiterate clients how to update their own content in minutes. Even so, Sketchanet is an incredibly powerful publishing tool and scratching beneath the surface reveal it's possibilities are endless."

CASE STUDY: ALEX LEWIS

Alex is a professional guitar instructor living in London. Having recruited me for my design services in the past, He approached me to build his website on a limited budget. The ease with which I can build a website in Sketchanet was a cost effective soloution for the pair of us and is simple enough to use that even Alex, a complete technophobe, was able to learn how to manage his new website in a very short space of time.
