Yota Digital Talks: Publishing platforms. Design against patterns (DIGITAL AUGUST)

Publishing platforms founders and art directors will discuss the advantages, disadvantages and trends of pattern design 

New platforms for user content allow not only blogging and digital publishing but also creating online shops, portfolios, photo stories and promotional pages for start-ups and successful businesses. And it’s not necessary to know HTML and CSS or hire designers to make your own website. The only thing you need is a subscribtion. However, the tools and designs that publishing platforms offer are often limited.

Can publishing platforms compete with traditional websites? What is their impact on web design development? In what way can businesses use publishing platforms? These questions will be discussed by content platform founders, designers and users at the open discussion at Strelka.
