Trying to learn Webflow? Go over this general "how-to get started" guide to align yourself on the path to become a Webflow genius.
The BEST place to start is Webflow University
No one knows the platform better than the ones who invested their time to create it.
It's my number one go-to when it comes to optimizing my Webflow skills. They have bite-size videos and have a whole crash course made of those videos. So if you are a beginner, or you want to keep your skills fresh, Webflow university is where it's at.
(I highly recommend you pay attention to class layouts and even watch additional videos on how to properly manage them. Having unorganized classes is like having laundry laying all over your room... I would know.)
Once you learn the basics of steering this massive no-code ship, it's time to open a blank canvas and get sailing. I personally recommend ALWAYS have a style guide page before you start developing a project. This will help you with organizing your:
- Font Weight
- Font Family
- Font Spacing
- Literally everything
If you are not sure where to find one, there are a couple of templates available online.
This will save you a headache and a half when it comes to developing and organizing your website.
Once your style guide is ready, open up whatever you designed and start applying the basics you learned to bring your inanimate design to life!
