Webflow to an intuitive, fluid new software for your next website. It is a platform for designing, building, and launching (free) responsive websites—with a 100% visual, user-friendly interface.

Everyone tells you to use Squarespace or WordPress for your personal or business website—but no one seems to enjoy using them! Join Creative-in-Residence Vicky Blue for an exciting introduction to an intuitive, fluid new software for your next website: Webflow. Used by professionals and beginners across the world, Webflow is a platform for designing, building, and launching (free) responsive websites—with a 100% visual, user-friendly interface.

Join us for an introductory Webflow workshop, where you can learn how to:
1) navigate an interface that’s less confusing than Squarespace.
2) use design tools that are more flexible than WordPress.
3) create a colorful, scrollable web animation that will be live and shareable on the internet.

Vicky Blume is a New Haven artist and web designer. This is her eighth autumn in the city, after moving here to study psychology and art at Yale. Since then, Blume has lit up community engagement for Artspace and Creative Arts Workshop. This August, she joined Fractured Atlas, a non-profit tech company providing business tools for artists. In her artistic practice, Blume builds interactive websites, animations, and installations that offer calming and consensual alternatives to the Attention Economy.
