So I came across Webflow just recently and it certainly caught my interest. However, before I jump into it, I need your take on if Webflow is suitable for me. I’m a beginner into design and development, I’m eager to pursue it, especially on the design side of things. Ideally I’d like to work in this area as a freelancer or for an agency eventually.
A couple months ago I decided to try learning online courses from a programme called Teamtreehouse, going through a front-end development learning track. It was a bit over my head, but I can at least say that I got a grasp of the basics to HTML, CSS and familiar with how JS at least looks like… Currently, I was just about to start a Wordpress Development course followed by basic web design course to top it off. Now that I came across Webflow, I’m reconsidering what I should be focusing my time on.
Additionally, awhile ago I had created a site in Weebly (I know not a great idea) for a family member who runs a cleaning business. Her site is OK and I’ve managed to get her good search rankings in Google. Now, I’m feeling that Weebly is quite limited and I’d like to improve it with much better design, other features, maybe move it over to Wordpress or perhaps Webflow.
So my questions in a nutshell are:
- Is Webflow suitable for me as a beginner?
- Should I focus my time on learning Wordpress In-depth or focus on Webflow?
- Should I move a business site from Weebly to Webflow and have it fully hosted?
- I don’t know photoshop well, should I know this well before I use Webflow? Any alternatives to learning it if so?
Looking forward to your help
