Webflow Explained

As a digital agency, we often get asked, "What is Webflow?" And, "Why should I use Webflow over another platform?"

We love Webflow for simpler use cases and it is the perfect platform for building beautiful, responsive websites without having to write a single line of code. And, because it is so visual and easy to use, it speeds up our workflow and allows us to focus on what we do best - design, ideate and create.

Webflow is a web-based drag-and-drop platform that enables users to create responsive websites without having to write code. It is one of the most popular web design platforms on the market, and is used by some of the world's leading brands, including Nike, BMW, and Samsung.

But, we understand that not everyone is familiar with Webflow or how it works. So, in this article, we're going to introduce you to Webflow and explain why we believe it is the best platform for building websites.

What is Webflow?

Webflow is a visual website builder that allows you to create responsive websites without having to write code. It is an all-in-one platform that includes everything you need to design, build, and launch your website.

With Webflow, you can create custom designs, add animations and interactions, and launch your site without having to hire a developer. Plus, because it is a visual platform, you can see your changes in real-time and make edits on the fly.

Why would I use it?

There are many reasons to use Webflow, but we believe there are three main reasons why it is the best platform for building websites.

  1. It's Visual
    As we mentioned, one of the best things about Webflow is that it is visual. This means that you can see your changes as you make them. There is no need to preview your work or wait for your changes to go live.
  2. It's Easy to Use
    Another great thing about Webflow is that it is easy to use. Even if you have never built a website before, you can easily create a beautiful site with Webflow. And, if you do have some experience, you will find that Webflow speeds up your workflow.
  3. It's Flexible
    Lastly, Webflow is a very flexible platform. It is built on top of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, which means that you can easily add custom code or use one of the many third-party integrations.

How does it work?

Now that we've talked about what Webflow is and why you should use it, let's take a look at how it works.

Webflow is built on three main pillars: design, development, and launch.

  1. Design
    The first pillar is design. With Webflow, you can create custom designs or use one of the many pre-built templates. You can also add animations and interactions to your site without having to write code.
  2. Development
    The second pillar is development. Once you have designed your site, you can then add your own custom code or use one of the many integrations. Webflow also provides a hosting platform so you can launch your site without having to worry about hosting or domain names.
  3. Launch
    The third pillar is launch. Once your site is designed and developed, you can then launch it with the click of a button. Webflow will take care of everything for you, from providing a hosting platform to optimizing your site for search engines.

Is Webflow for you?

In conclusion, we believe that Webflow is a great platform for building simpler websites. It is visual, easy to use, and flexible. Plus, it includes everything you need to design, develop, and launch your site.

If you're ready to get started with Webflow, we recommend checking out the platform and also getting in touch to get the most of our experience in delivering digital projects.

Navigating the digital shift

We all know our digital era has brought about a transformation in the way organisations interact with their audiences. That transformation has been different from sector to sector - in some, there has been a fundamental rewrite of the rules with the old and the new thrown into the competition. Think Amazon, then think of your local hardware store.

Zen and the art of support and maintenance

There was a time when you could just buy an application, maybe on a CD-ROM if you remember those, install it on your computer and it would just work - forever. Or at least until the computer broke down. So you might ask, given that a website is ‘sort of’ an application, why does it even need support and maintenance?

Website trends - The years ahead

Digital experiences require hardware and that consumes energy. So the first step in ensuring sustainable delivery of those experiences is to look at the hosting. There is a wide range of eco-friendly and carbon neutral options available today and the costs compare well with the rest of the market. With global suppliers such as Amazon Web Services all the way down to niche providers offering environmentally friendly hosting options, there is no excuse for not making this key transition.
