3 Ways The Gutenberg Project Changes WordPress For Designers

As a web designer, things are going to feel different for you very soon if you’re using WordPress every day. The Gutenberg WordPress Editor is coming, and with it, changes to how you design your websites. You can test out the Gutenberg Project as a plugin, but when WordPress 5.0 is released it will be the default editor.

Let’s take a look at what the Gutenberg Project can do for your designs, for those used to handling WordPress and those coming from other website editors like Weebly, Concrete5 and more.

1. Responsive Design

To make WordPress responsive these days, you need specific themes or plugins to help. As a designer, it can be overwhelming in some cases to decide how to help your client get the responsive website they want, especially if cost is a concern.

With the Gutenberg Project, all WordPress installations that are updated to 5.0 will be responsive automatically, so designers and their clients won’t have to worry about getting the website just right for iPhones, Androids, MacBooks and high-definition desktop displays.

2. Multimedia Ready

As a designer, you’ve probably fussed around with different themes and plugins to make multimedia look right for your client. Getting the gallery or video just right can be frustrating.

With the Gutenberg Project, you’ll be able to quickly and easily change out multimedia without installing anything extra! Photos, slideshows, videos, gifs, podcasts and more all have their place natively, allowing you to build a spiffy looking site without getting bogged down in technical details.

3. Less Code, More Design

If you’re like most designers, you got into the website design game to do just that – design. Not develop, not code. The Gutenberg Project allows you to use Blocks, which allow you to create tables, buttons, columns, separators, pull quotes and more. Previously, you’d have had to have coding knowledge or plugins to create these things.

WordPress will be changing, and it may make things easier for website designers.
