For the last few months, I've been working alongside The Label Collective as a WordPress developer. Evidity, my first project with them, launched last month.
I've always preferred writing code over using pre-built themes, but have seen that there are instances where a small site can be put together more efficiently using a builder theme. This was my first site using a Beaver Builder and it worked out well. As builders go, it seems to be the most lightweight and responsive, and most user friendly as I've trained clients to do updates.
