In episode 8 of Building A Brand, we take you behind the process of building a website from scratch for the Hamilton’s. A website is one of the most important tools for any business to have today. While Blind’s client, Hamilton Family Brewery, primarily operates out of a physical location, owners Josh and Crysten Hamilton are hoping to expand into retail and grow their brand online.
The Hamilton’s are going to need a website that can tell their story, educate customers on their beer, and inform visitors of their upcoming events, all while being easy for Josh and Crysten to maintain themselves.
The design team at Blind doesn’t have any developers in-house, so they’ve chosen to use Webflow to develop the new Hamilton website, without having to write a single line of code.
