Google Web Designer: Bringing Ideas To Life, Using HTML5

Yesterday Google added a new tool to its wide array of offerings, and this time they have built something specifically for the web design community.

Allow 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’.

So what exactly can Google Web Designer do? Here are some of the features it offers:

  • Full 3D authoring environment utilizing CSS3
  • Automated and intuitive design tools to let you create animated HTML5
  • Publish designed ads directly to DoubleClick Studio or AdMob
  • In-built illustration tools
  • Choice of either Design View or Code View

To give you a quick overview of what Google Web Designer can do, check out this video:

As of now, Google Web Designer is freely available for both Mac and PC. It is still in BETA, though that shouldn’t really deter you from giving it a spin — GMail was in BETA for a long while, wasn’t it?
