Even if you’re a master coder, a good visual interface can make a world of difference when doing things like building responsive web apps.

That said, startup Divshot just raised $1.1 million in seed funding to grow its drag-and-drop visual builder. The startup’s service is described as a tool for professional web development that fuses a solid visual interface with professional code quality standards — or sort of like a Creative Suite for web developers. Divshot said it already has 40,000 users.

The seed round was led by Rincon Venture Partners with participation from 500 Startups, Daher Capital, Floodlight Ventures, Cooley LLP, Drummond Road Capital, and Eric Hammond.

“Super-smart team with kick-ass open-source cred building tools for developers? We can’t wait to see what they do next,” said 500 Startups’ Dave McClure in a statement.

Founded in April, the Los Angeles-based startup was previously a graduate of the Launchpad LA accelerator.
