This is a broad general question and I’m after any advice or wisdom I can find from fellow webflow users.
I’m 51 and trained as a graphic designer.
Over the last 10 years I’ve taught myself the rudiments of coding and web design. When I discovered webflow, my instant reaction was at last - these two worlds - graphics and coding seem to be converging. In short, it got fun again!
Now i’m feeling another need to move forward again and embrace UX design. The last site I made in webflow - I designed it at screen size and then worked my way down to mobile. However I found that the UX I had designed for screen, didn’t really work at mobile sizes, so I found myself specifically designing for both. Which was kinda cool to be honest - so thats good - I’m thinking like a UX designer already.
Webflow is now putting a lot of emphasis on ‘interactions’. So clearly there is a push to allow designers to really delve deep into how a site flows as you scroll through it. The process of getting from A to B. Not just A and B.
So thats exciting.
So what does anyone out there think of this subject? Who out there considers themselves a UX designer?
Do you use Webflow for prototyping like you would say Sketch or InVision? Any left-field thoughts on the subject?
I hope to hear from you.
