Staying ahead of the curve always means finding new and better tools to continue providing our clients with unparalleled services in web design, software design and digital marketing. We knew we had found something special when we discovered Webflow, which allows you to build responsive websites more easily than ever before. We experienced this firsthand when we rebuilt our own site using Webflow. And now, we're proud to announce that Adlava is an official Webflow partner.
Some of the Many Benefits of Webflow
Webflow has helped Adlava tremendously, to say the least. To begin, it's drastically reduced our development time on most of our web projects and streamlines the process of creating prototypes and launching live websites.
Decreased Production Time, Increased Savings
Ultimately, we're able to produce websites for our clients faster than we could in the past, which also means that we can do it more cost-efficiently, as well. This means that we can pass those savings along to our clients.
Additionally, Webflow makes it so simple to create dynamic, live prototypes — and ones that are full functioning, at that. Like many agencies, in the past, we relied on 2D Photoshop files to show our clients what their work-in-progress website looked like. With Webflow, however, no matter what stage of development we're at, the client will have a good idea of the look, feel and general flow of a user. They can actually interact with their site at any stage, which is something that 2D mockups could never provide.
Front-end animation is faster than ever, and we can completely customize everything even with the reduction in time and cost. This has given us the freedom and flexibility to be infinitely more creative with the sites that we build.
Collaboration Made Easier
It's also combined and streamlined the processes of web design and content management into one smooth process, offering a live visual editor, unlike a more common CMS like WordPress. This means that both the designer and the client can easily make changes to the site, with no backend hassle like what you'd experience on WordPress. In addition, SEO- and analytics-related elements are incredibly easy to implement.
The dashboard in particular has been immensely helpful for our team, because it makes it very straightforward for everyone working on a project to do so in a collaborative manner.
And because Webflow is constantly evolving, new features frequently roll out, helping us stay ahead of the game.
Lastly, but certainly of utmost importance, is security, which is a top priority for Webflow. There are no "plugins" to deal with, so you never have to worry if they'll play nicely with each other and your site. Updates aren't an issue, because they happen natively within Webflow.
We can truly tell how much Webflow cares about customer service. Their knowledge and resource base is expansive, and they frequently release new tutorials. Their forum board is always active, and they even offer a wishlist for their users.
Thanks to Webflow, we can launch and host websites so easily. It's saved us — and our clients — significant time and money.
"I love Webflow because of how flexible it is and the way it simplifies processes to make our workflow more efficient," says Amanda, our Lead UX/UI Designer. "It allows us to design and code at the same time, as well as design for desktop, tablet, and mobile all at once. It gives us full control of the project from design to launch which allows for faster development time. Webflow also has an awesome community surrounding it. Along with their extensive knowledge base, they make it easy for users to share their projects and tips to help one another. The company is also continually gathering feedback and improving their product with designers in mind."
Adds Karel (Our Creative Director), "Webflow empowers the designer to ideate, design, and build websites without the need for outside resources. This has been crucial for our agency as we've relied on developers for many years. With Webflow, we're able to launch a well-designed and effective website in a fraction of the time that we have in the past. Client requests and edits are easy. Our designers have the ability to do them themselves and no longer need to go through the painstaking process of translating them to a developer. In short, Webflow makes everyone's lives easier."
As Webflow experts, we have a deep knowledge of how it works and special access to the creators behind the tool. And as Webflow grows, we stay up-to-date with their latest features and resources. We're thrilled to be able to offer our clients with the absolute best in web design.
