This may seem like a trivial question, but I'm dying to know the answer from some professional web designers.
I have built a number of websites myself over the past 8 years, some of which have gone on to be very successful. However, I've always designed them in photoshop as a rough PNG, then just tried to recreate it myself from scratch (using frameworks such as Bootstrap, etc)
What I want to know is whether real industry web designers actually use software like Reflow, which does a lot of the programming? Or do they program the site themselves? How do they design and build the site?
I would love to have some better software for designing the site, but I feel when it comes to the programming...it should be done from scratch. Is this a wrong attitude? What is the workflow for proper, industry websites? (Such as Spotify.com, Facebook, Twitter). How do they design - and build - their sites?
