Landing Page Design & Development

Josh Kennedy @estafette72

After chewing on things for a while (and hemming and hawing, as is my norm) I decided to pull the trigger. I sat down in front of Sketch for an hour and change and whipped up a quick landing page design that I'm pretty pleased with.

The developer side of me is a bit ADD, so when it came time to start building the landing page, I got lost in the sea of "no-code" options, frontend frameworks, splash page creators, Wix and Squarespace - I even started two or three times before scrapping the code entirely.

In the end I decided to go with what I know: Jekyll, Tailwind, and Netlify. I'm still in the process of building out the landing page but am anticipating being done by the end of this weekend.
