New York, NY (PRWEB) July 9, 2010
Wix.com is a start-up company born in 2006, which developed game-changing software for the quick and easy design of high-quality Flash websites. With a powerful graphic interface, Wix' website builder is extremely intuitive even for those with no technical expertise. More than 4 million users worldwide have used Wix to design sites for their small businesses, photography and design studios, artist portfolios, and many other design-related niches. Now, for the first time ever in NYC, creative professionals can have a home-away-from-home at the new Wix Lounge.
With a launch party scheduled for July 29th, the Wix Lounge will provide free workspace for creative professionals. Fully equipped with free Wi-Fi, free coffee and comfy couches, the Wix Lounge will give designers a convenient spot right in the heart of Manhattan's hip Chelsea neighborhood, to get work done, schedule meetings with clients, and pick the brains of like-minded folk.
Wix Lounge Director, Victoria Monsul, comments, "We wanted to make a space for the free exchange of ideas, where creative minds can get their work done in a design-oriented environment."
The Lounge will host a series of meet-ups, happy hours and cocktail parties, for designers to come together and meet one another and enjoy Wix promotions and product giveaways. A series of workshops will also be held at the Wix Lounge, on topics ranging from how to make a website, to using social media to promote your design business.
Signing up at Wix.com grants online users instant access to the powerful website builder and a huge gallery of free Flash web templates. Wix users can customize items found inside web templates, adding their own text, photos, music, clip art, video, and more. Everything is drag & drop, enabling users to build their own free website in just a few clicks. Free hosting is provided under Wix' URL, and premium packages are offered for users wishing to upgrade to their own site domain.
