Wix.com is a web design platform established in 2006. As a design first company, our in-house multidisciplinary studio employs over 300 designers who come from a wide range of professional backgrounds including illustrators, product designers, UX designers, web designers, art directors, photographers, motion designers, content writers, visual researchers, 3D artists and video editors.
In 2018 we decided to take our accumulated knowledge and experience and invest in the next generation of designers. We created the Wix Playground Academy as a space for digital creatives focused on education, enrichment, events and industry collaboration through real life experiences and personal mentorship.
