Built with creatives in mind, Nubook is a visual design platform that allows its users to create beautiful, magazine-like websites without having to pick up any code. It’s pretty specific in its focus, however: Nubook does not offer any e-commerce or blogging functionality (it claims there are already other platforms that do it really well). Instead, Nubook’s specialty is in empowering its users to create stunning galleries, portfolios, and presentations with the flexibility to easily change layouts around later on.
Nubook’s editor is simple enough to use once you’ve invested an appropriate amount of time learning the initial organizational tools. It’s based on a drag-and-drop design, so once you’ve gotten the hang of the editor, it’s easy to swap out layouts, drag and drop pages around, group them, create links, or do anything to alter the underlying structure. You can also embed Vimeo, YouTube, Rdio, Spotify, SoundCloud, and more. Plus, Nubook has teamed up with TypeTogether to provide high quality font types for its users. One downside is that there isn’t an option to add in custom code for any functionality that isn’t built into the platform, but that’s because of Nubook’s mission to keep things simple for creatives.
You can try Nubook for free for 30 days – no credit card details required. After that, Nubook only has one fairly affordable paid package, with a discount if paid annually.
