When one of the world’s largest venture capital (VC) firms, Sequoia, came to us in need of a platform to help launch their Arc program, we viewed their request as a chance to push the visual limits in Webflow.
Sequoia chose Edgar Allan for their project for a few reasons.
Second, because of our knowledge and expertise within Webflow.
And finally, because of our recently launched Knockout framework for Webflow, which would make it possible to get the project done in record time: just two weeks! And Knockout didn’t just help us build the site quickly — it also helped Sequoia’s design team accurately describe what they wanted, which cut down on back-and-forth and kept everyone on track.
Arc helps seed-stage founders add value to their companies. Rather than going with a boring (and limited) form submission-style application, Sequoia wanted a dynamic, self-contained site to catch founders’ attention and make applying as streamlined as possible.
In the end we created a beautiful, functional form for founders, a project that lands somewhere between a Webflow microsite and an application. The collaborative, community-led nature of Webflow and the Webflow community is what makes it possible for teams like ours to continue pushing the web forward on projects like these. Whenever we have an issue, we can count on someone in the community who has experienced a similar challenge.
Receiving this Webflow Award affirms that just because a site may be smaller in scope, it still can be beautifully made, visually appealing, and a joy to use.
The moral of this story? We are made better by our work, and our work is made better by Webflow.
