Designers don’t necessarily need to know code.
But they will surely gain an edge over others if they do.
With coding knowledge, designers can better improve their designs and even turn them into reality.
Here we have Worksofwisnu’s owner, a designer, and developer, who is about to share with us his story!
Hi, could you tell us a little about yourself?
I’m from Indonesia. I’m a web designer and front-end developer. These two jobs, in fact, complement each other very well.
What are you selling? Why and how did you make it?
I’m creating and selling HTML Templates on marketplaces. My online shop on MakiPlace is Worksofwisnu.
How do you get inspired?
Well, I make use of various sources out there to raise ideas for my products as well as get inspired. I can say Dribble is a good one. Trending and best-seller items are also good references. I believe there are so much I can learn from them like popular tastes, desirable features, and current trends. Such good items, besides, greatly encourage me to do better.
Any tips for designers and developers on selling their stuff?
Just one thing I would like to give out: Keep making original items. The originality is what makes your products rise above the mass and a sure-fire way of getting attention. That customers get interested in your products will do wonders for you. So make your products as persuasive as possible.
Which feature would you like to see on MakiPlace?
Well, I hope you can consider lowering the minimum amount for withdrawal. Or for being a new marketplace, you can go another way by allowing authors to pay any amount of their earnings.
What are your favorite resources for design and development?
I have many places to go for professional resources. Tutplus, Designmodo, Web Designer Depot, Graphicburger, Dribble are where I usually reach for advice and resources. There is a lot of useful stuff there which I can take advantage of to improve my knowledge, skills, make friends, and seek for career opportunities.
From the beginning of the story, the door of Worksofwisnu has already been wide open to welcome you. Now, why don’t we stop wandering around and go there to take a look?
