As a designer, websites for ourselves, or our businesses can easily become a: "the cobblers children have no shoes" situation. Where does one find the time to work on their own projects, when clients have work that needs to be done? As a result, this website has very slowly taken shape over about 6 months of infrequent work. I'm happy to say though, that it is now done. A place to showcase the work of BluBot design. A place to show clients what we have done, and give them an idea of what we can do for them.
The nice thing about working on personal site is that it gives and opportunity to try new things. This site was developed using Webflow. A website building utility, that while not too difficult to use, certainly has a learning curve. I'm sure we can all agree, nobody wants to pay somebody to learn how to do something. So, on my own website was the perfect opportunity.
Step 1:Deciding on a platform
After looking over several options, Webflow intrigued me, and this would be a good opportunity to test it and see if it would be a useful asset in the future.
Step 2: Decide on a look
I researched a lot of design businesses, and top rated site designs to determine what elements I would like to have on my site, and what I didn't want to include. I then bought a template to build off of. This would save a lot of effort in the early stages. Rather than creating elements from scratch, I could modify the layout to suit my needs.
Step 3: Graphics
So many graphics. We ended up creating close to 60 different images of our past projects to put on the website.
Step 4: Copywriting
All the text on the site had to be written, keeping in mind the images would do most of the talking
Step 5: QC (Quality Control)
Editing and fixing, and tweaking, and all those little things that just aren't quite right need to be fixed.
Step 6: Announcement
Present the new site!
