Implementing Visual Page Building Experiences (without Compromising Design & Content Architecture)

Versatile, visual page builders like Elementor and Gutenberg have taken center stage in WordPress, while no-code solutions like Webflow continue to gain ground. Content managers are drawn to their flexibility and seemingly endless array of add-on blocks and features.

Layout builder, Layout Paragraphs, Blocks, Entities -- what should the fundamental building blocks of your site be?
What happened to a semantically fielded approach to content architecture? How can your content model scale if the data and presentation are smashed together?
How do you maintain design integrity if content editors have so much flexibility?
