I've designed websites with Webflow since June 2014. What motivated me to use Webflow? I asked around for a quote to design & build a simple blog or affiliate marketplace website, almost all the quotes were over ยฃ20,000. So I set myself a challenge to learn the basics of web design, html & css, and design the website myself. Best of all, you have 100% control over it, make changes with a few clicks whenever you want.

I should also mention that my annual billing for Photoshop and Sketch app has gone to waste. Webflow can be used in the same way you use Photoshop, however the huge plus is that it produces clean semantic html & css code which should please your client by accessing and interacting with the design mockup in a web browser.

Hi Christopher,

Not sure if you're aware but Webflow pushed this feature out this week.

Best, Naweed
