  • Posted to Introducing Webflow University, Aug 15, 2017

    Hi everyone! I'm excited to announce the Webflow University, a completely free resource for anyone who wants to get into web design or just wants to design/build their own website. It includes 120 new videos organized into 8 courses that we'll continue to develop. Our mission is to make building for the web more accessible to everyone, whether or not they know code.

    Webflow University

    New Courses

    • Intro to Web Design - Learn the basics of the box model, positioning, color theory, typography and more. A great place to start if you’re new to the world of web design.
    • CSS Styling - Take a closer look at all the styling possibilities that CSS offers, and see how to use Webflow's tools to style elements visually.
    • CSS Layout and Positioning - Dig into the (at times challenging) world of HTML and CSS layouts, and go over everything from block and inline block to flexbox.
    • Ultimate Web Design - All our videos in one big sequence, covering the broadest, most introductory material, down to the most Webflow-specific tutorials in our library.
    • CMS and Dynamic Content - Learn the principles and advantages of building and maintaining a database-driven website.
    • SEO Fundamentals - A quick introduction to the world of search engine optimization, covering the way Google indexes and ranks your site, along with some best practices.
    • Webflow 101 Crash Course - A revamped getting started with Webflow course to give you a broad exposure to the many possibilities that Webflow opens up.
    • Web Elements - A comprehensive look at all the different building blocks and elements at your disposal in Webflow.
    • (Coming soon) Interactions and Animations - To be released alongside our launch of Interactions 2.0!

    --

    We’re hoping these videos are actually fun to watch (blame Dale). Let us know what you think and how we can improve it!

    Nice polished product but it looks like a copy of Teamweek (https://teamweek.com/). How is it different?

  • Posted to ASK DN: Webflow any good? , in reply to Weston Vierregger , Jul 21, 2016

    Nope, Jimmy is not affiliated with or paid by Webflow. There have been several DN posts created recently by designers that are interested in or that use Webflow, like this tutorial posted yesterday: https://www.designernews.co/stories/72042-converting-sketch-to-webflow. I can see how some may think we have some kind of sly DM spam campaign going on, but we actually prefer when this stuff happen organically.

    The only times we post something on DN is when we want to share a blog post from the Webflow blog or a kick-ass Webflow feature that's helpful to the design/dev community.

    Great write up! It's spot on. It's very challenging but very rewarding. Though it does require a certain personality and drive to be successful.

  • Posted to Material Design icon collection NOVA by Vincent Le Moign. All his icons are top notch!, Jan 13, 2016

    Great icons! Love the selection and style. Although the more I use them the more inconsistencies I find that don't follow the same form guidelines as the rest of the icons. If you compare the icons below you'll see that the rounded edges are inconsistent even for the same icon. Overall a great set with some quirky details.

    We're releasing a feature soon that will allow you to integrate your dynamic content with Shopify. A full-fledge e-commerce solution is something we want to tackle as well.

    Thanks for the suggestion Clifford. Education is so important for getting the most out of Webflow. We're always thinking about what type of resources would have the highest ROI for our users. We currently offer small 1-hr weekly workshops because they have higher attendance. We plan on experimenting with longer workshops as demand increases. Soon we'll be restructuring our help center (help.webflow.com) to provide different types of education including General Docs, Video Tutorials, and Courses. My hope is that the courses we'll be creating will get you to "Webflow super expert" status.

    Webflow was designed to design/build websites. We would need to design a unique interface for mobile app development. There are just too many differences (code, layout paradigms, touch interactions, etc). Building for web and mobile might get easier with technologies like React Native, but I think they would still require separate UI's.

    however I would just advise you not to think too complex

    Easier said than done. :D We're always considering whether it makes more sense to push a quick fix or invest in a long-term solution with the limited time/resources we have. That's one of the challenges of product development. Localization is one of those things we have to build from the ground up because it touches so many parts of the experience.

    Any thoughts for a module 3rd party plug-in system?

    We're thinking about it :)

    Nooice! It's awesome to see our users being so active in the community. :) As for our office... actually it's kind of a mess right now since we're moving into a bigger space. Ask again in a couple months when we're settled.
