What do you like best?

I like the interface and easy to use, it has a lot of functionality with timeline Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunatelly it doesnot not create clean svg or css based animations, rather it creates bunch of js code which is impossible to understand or edit. i used svgator before and liked its svg based animations. so i'd suggest google web designer tool to make animation svg only or css only animations. For complex animations using js is ok, but i am talking about small micro animations. Let's say I am just making character to raise a hand only, why do I need tons of js for that? Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I prefer tools like LOTTIE, SVGATOR or GSAP. Unfortunatelly Google Web Designer mostly made for banners, But today i have to animate some icons or illustrations on my landing page. I think GWD is not perfect for other purposes like icons and svg. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used it to create a banner. But I couldn't create simple animation for svg illustrations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I loved how easy it was to bring design assets straight into the interface and be able to drop the layers into a timeline with keyframe which allows to so pretty amazing animations without extensive coding. The output options are also great and allow you to export in various formats including double click. If really to get a hang of if you experience with programs that use timelines and keyframes such as After Effects and for us old-timers... Flash. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It does take some time to have to export all design assets individually rather than have an integration with the leading design software such as Adobe Photoshop, XD, After Effects amongst others. I also wish it integrated with more javascript libraries, GSAP, WebGL, and Canvas, which could extremely extend the animation capabilities of Google Web Designer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're looking to create dynamic animated motion pieces that are mobile-friendly, with little coding you should try Google Web Designer. It's very user friendly and easy to get the hang off if you have any experience with programs using a timeline and/or keyframes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Minimizing how much time it takes to make complicated modern animations with the ability to take PSD to HTML animations. Google Web Designer seems to have been created with digital marketing in mind, which makes it easy to package up and deliver ad sets easily. The benefits that I have realized is, that no longer do you really a separate designer and developer to create stunning dynamic animated mobile-friendly experiences.

What do you like best?

I downloaded it without even reading what it is, thinking it is a whole new web designing tool but rather an ad designing tool. Well, the good thing is I have a lot of campaigns on Adwords, Media.net and Facebook and Google Web Designer is a perfect tool for designing banner ads. 360, parallax, and responsive templates are a big factor , also include the native banner ads. Google web designer is the real deal when making and designing your ads. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

First of all, Google Web Designer is free.

It is also very good in creating infographics and static banners for promotional purposes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The name fooled me the first time! It is indeed a web designer, but generally speaking, meaphorically or slang, anyone who read or heard about Google Web Designer for the first time would think it is a full website creation suite. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I have been creating banners for responsive ads and other sizes before and I use Photoshop most of the time. But sometimes, I need to be in a rush and creating design manually with Photoshop is time consuming. With Google Web Designer and its templates available, creating banner ads is easier and faster. Sizes are accurate and even pixels are perfectly fine. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Google Web Designer has an extemely simple to use GUI which allows you to create stunning ads with its drag and drop feature. You can also toggle between code view and default view. You can also create 3D animations as it supports a timeline view to check everything. Google Web Designer also supports Google Maps and Youtube and also has a very simple WYSIWYG interface.

What do you like best?

It's features which have multi proportionate and multi vertical design abilities. Above all it's automatic google synchronisation in all senses and aspects. Offer creators may be in heaven with this gem as it has some spectacular features mainly intended for offers to reach sharply for visibility to make people aware of the opportunity in an offer straight forward. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

If it was invented as a full website creation software it may have been the best one to use for any websites. But unfortunately seeing the interface and features it seems to me that the user should be professional programmer with some advanced coding ideas to use it for a full website creation. That means some drag and drop features in cloud apps of google which can make full websites are missing in this desktop application. But actually when it comes to an ad creation or creation of some parts of a web page they cannot be considered as a lack of feature because the features inbuilt are the main intentions of GWD. Also the latest versions have the ability to code edit as required when importing from other files created outside GWD. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Lot of improvements happening and templates there are so worth of having it as a tool for every web property owners. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I created my first web page using some simple steps GWD have. Benefits I realised are the synchronisation of everything related to the google cloud account of the creator who creates a design using GWD. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Google Web Designer is great at what I need, creating advertising banners. Also allows you to setup responsive banners at a very straightforward phase. It is also good as the pixels when my ad is already online is great, making my job easier not to re edit again because the pixels are not that quite good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I previously used Photoshop to create banner ads and Sony Vegas to create video ads, but when I got a hand on Google Web Designer, it made my life easier as I can create banner ads and video ads faster with this tool.

The templates are the most helpful ones that speed up my creation of ads. I just edit whatever I want, graphics and text and everything is simply basic to handle, maybe because Ive been doing it for over 4 years with Photoshop and Vegas. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The tool is somewhat slow at initial loading compared to Photoshop and Vegas. Maybe because it automatically checks updates when loaded. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Basically, with Google Web Designer, my time spent on creating banner ads and video ads were cut in half. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Despite it's name Google Web Designer is not actually for web designing, Instead of that Google Web Designer is used for CSS-3 compatible Animation and HTML 5 Compatible adverts.

Now making animation in CSS-3 with the help of some famous tools like Adobe is not very much as expected and also not easy to animate that due to very complex interface of such applications, in that case Google Web Designer comes up with an awesome dark mode interface with minimal required functionalities that can very much handy for animation makers and also adverts makers too.

The main thing which I like in this software is that is was provided by Google and as of now our company uses almost every product of google with Google account per person, this awesome software is also accessible with the help of Google account too. So no need to create multiple products and also security and confidentiality of Google is also there.

Google web designer has included almost each and every tool that is provided by Adobe for free of price.

Google Web Designer has directly connected with Google Account and we can store our work from Google Web Designer directly into cloud, So anyone who has a access of my work can see and edit according to their needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One thing that I don't like for Google Web Designer is that google should include web page making also in this software, because in each and every aspect this software is awesome and easy to work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Earlier our company used to do animations in flash, but flash is not supported in iOS and google is also ending flash compatibility in their products and majority of people are using Google Chrome as their browser. Then we started looking for CSS 3 animations and for that we have used Adobe Products but they are not very useful and easy to work then we started animating in Google Web Designer and we got expected and best results with smooth animations.

Google hopes to develop websites and they believe that the tools available now do not provide that. Google has launched Google Web Designer in its trial version. Google provides a lot of tools for developers where the program comes with two facades of encoding, where comes the first choice is Google ads, where through Google to provide you all sizes required for Google Ads This provides advertisers in the Google adword, the second option is a blank file where you can start coding the entire page through HTML, css, xml, java, etc. The software is very useful for quick coding or making files fast, and it takes just small space and also does not need the possibilities.

No me gusta el agrupamiento, hasta cierto punto, las regiones confusas de la interfaz que dificultan la mejora del sitio. Del mismo modo, algunos aspectos destacados son conflictivos en la frecuencia con la que funcionan o dan la impresión de que se rompen, lo que hace que sea bastante inconsistente en casos específicos.

What I like most is that a design tool managed through the web with direct access and small complement in the computer, this fabulous tool allows you to organize and design websites, I like that a very fast and light tool.

I like that I can use it without having a robust computer, that is, a team that asks for features or strong resources, since those forces us to have to acquire a good computer and they are expensive

I like that it is totally free and I can use it whenever I want as long as I have access to the internet.

I can design simple but good things with it.

When you put the name of a page created by this website is one of the first to appear

It's the premium program for creating HTML ads. It's easy to use and learn if you're coming from the Adobe world. Bonus: it's free! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Compression. My main struggle has been trying to getting banners down to the min file size for Google Ads and the program doesn't really offer any features to aid in that field. So, I find myself compressing in other programs, then returning to GWB to finalize the banner ads.

Oh, and why can't you duplicate transitions? That's the one area Edge has the upper hand. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
