Launched in early 2014, Site Designer is a website building tool for Houzz professionals. The tool takes the content from a Houzz professional profile and turns it into a customizable website. Site Designer allows pros to choose their site template, colors and fonts, and to customize the content that is included. This landing page is intended to inform users of the ease and benefits of building their website with Houzz Site Designer.
We created two versions: one for visitors who do not have a professional profile (shown below), and another similar version for visitors who are already Houzz pros but who have not yet set up a website with Site Designer.
In addition to this landing page, I wrote supporting documentation and FAQs, and defined the menu and language within the tool itself. I continue to write sample copy for the website themes and am responsible for naming the themes.
