Every year, I try to learn a new tool to add to my skill set and help bring my ideas to life. For the past year, that tool has been Webflow.
It started around May of 2020 when I was building my first portfolio site to showcase my design work. I started by using Squarespace. It was fairly intuitive and the templates were nice, but I could never customize the site exactly how I wanted to. I tried using the custom CSS editor to tweak things here and there, but eventually, I realized that I was looking for more than just slight customizations. What I really desired was to design and build my own website from scratch.
This is just scratching the surface. Webflow also offers a robust Content Management System as well as e-Commerce capability, so the sites can really be used at any scale. Some brands that use Webflow include Dell, Upwork, and Zendesk to name a few.
I always encourage friends who are interested in web design to try out Webflow. It’s really been a game-changer for me and a lot of others who have been looking for a way to create custom websites without knowing how to code.
