From there, we paired with their in-house design team to understand their content elements, and then it was just about putting the design system puzzle together to create the new page layouts. The end result isn’t just a beautiful build, but one that Virta can author and control. And since we’ve rolled off the project, they’ve been managing brilliantly, maintaining a really clean class structure that has allowed them to scale and have confidence in making updates without it affecting the rest of the site.
We started by helping Virta evaluate which content management system would be best suited to their core publishing needs. While their blog was already on WordPress, we learned that what they really wanted was to gain flexibility in their onboarding and customer engagement experiences, which can be complicated in their case; selling a treatment platform for a chronic illness takes a bit more consideration than most click-to-buy consumer product purchases… Together, we decided that Webflow was the right choice to provide the authoring power they desired.
A comprehensive site audit and content mapping became key for Virta’s site migration. We indexed all existing pages and logged each in an external work management system to track build progress because there were a lot of interdependencies among pages.
