Wix.com enables everyone to design, publish and host stunning HTML5 websites. No coding, no previous design skills, just log in to Wix and start creating with our easy drag-and-drop website builder! In that spirit of encouraging creativity and enabling entrepreneurship, in 2010 Wix founded the NYC Wix Lounge. The Wix Lounge is a completely free co-working, event and exhibit space for creative professionals. Grab your laptop, pop into the Lounge and enjoy a productive work day, great networking opportunities, and amazing events. The Wix Lounge provides free support to New Yorkers, giving them the tools and tips for successfully launching and managing their businesses’ online presence.

Rebecca Paul Marshall | UncommonGoods
Rebecca Paull Marshall is the Associate Art Director at UncommonGoods. Before working on more web-based designs, she focused on both print and packaging—In the design world they call that a triple threat. (They don't. But she's hoping it catches on.)
Gaby Dolceamore, moderator | UncommonGoods
Gaby Dolceamore is the Community Outreach Coordinator at UncommonGoods growing their design community through events, design challenges and social media. In 2011, she tapped into her online network to win a gig as the Levi's Girl, a social media spokesperson position.
