Team Timeout

Ryan: I pretty much just used Webflow and Adobe Illustrator. I also sketched in my Moleskine and whatnot a bunch. I love thinking on paper. (Fun fact, the illustrations are all done in Adobe Illustrator, except that cube was made in Webflow so that it could rotate in 3D space.)

Waldo: I work on a Macbook Pro and 27” Cinema display. I used Webflow to build and animate the piece, QuickTime to record a video, and Photoshop to export the gif.

What’s the most challenging part of your job?

Ryan: The most challenging part of my job is figuring out how to inform and educate people about what Webflow is and to try and shape an accurate perception of the tool and its capabilities through design. Because Webflow is something so different than any other tool, nobody actually knows what it can do and how well it does it until they see it and use it. So I’m trying to fight that.

Waldo: The most challenging part of my job is saying no. I love what I do and I love to help people. But I have had to turn down tons of projects because I simply don’t have the time to work on them. So finding other people is always a challenge but it is always rewarding to give other people opportunities and see them grow.
