With a business website, the most important is the results. Outcomes over outputs. Let me share my story on how I come to niching my career in helping businesses grow through effective marketing websites.
I've spent years experimenting and refining my process. Volunteering at Catholic charismatic events is where I started in design. Getting a bachelor's degree in architecture from UST opened my way of thinking around how people's lives are shaped by physical spaces. Diving head-first into the advertising industry molded me on how to market and sell to target customers through experiential events and branding. I then shifted my career to a digital startup company. The Information and Technology field made me feel at home when I learned about design thinking and its iterative process.
Seeing the potential of Webflow, I studied it like crazy. After a few weeks, I was able to create a live business website for a client in just 2 weeks without any background in coding. My client was more than happy. I was able to deliver the website project fast, provide on-brand web design, and more importantly, HUGE results in converting visitors into customers.
I guess my journey led me to my Ikigai; to design the better, faster, together.
It was always a dream of mine to be able to translate my static web designs in Figma to a live website without compromising with design. At first, I was skeptical about Webflow, then I saw award winning websites that were made with Webflow. I was hooked (and still am).
Hoping to see a community of Filipino Webflowers (yes, that's what Webflow Designers are called), I found myself alone. This made me realize that I need to be the one to start this community I've been longing for. I started a Meetup group to share and learn web design with fellow Filipinos. We're now over 500+ members or marketers, developers, and designers! I'm optimistic that this is just the beginning of an epic group. This just shows that there are talented Filipinos in the web industry.
If you want to join me in my mission of enabling Filipinos for the web, you can join our group for free to watch, volunteer, and engage in our events. See you soon!
