As a designer

With ExpressionEngine you’ll never have to stop and ask whether it’s possible to implement a design because the answer is always yes.

ExpressionEngine does something that no other CMS does: It stays completely out of the way. It doesn’t impose any design constraints or force you to compromise your artistic vision.

A great design is a harmonious interplay of many elements—symmetry, clarity, positioning, typography, color, space, and consistency. An exceptional user experience happens only when each element is in pixel-perfect balance. With ExpressionEngine you can achieve that, because it liberates you as a designer to focus solely on doing what you do best: Design. You’ll never have to compromise your vision. If you can dream it, ExpressionEngine can achieve it.

Unleash your creativity with total confidence!
