Creating a Brand with Frontify: A Designer's Perspective


This site was designed and coded by me, a total newb when it comes to coding. But it looks pretty good and contains no analytics, tracking, cookies, or other data gathering tools. This was done for three reasons:

1) It’s cost effective. The site is hosted on GitHub for free, so the only thing I pay for is the custom domain. Neat!

2) It’s an attempt to embody the DIY spirit instead of relying on corporations and existing templates.

3) It provides a private experience for my site visitors. There’s no reason for me or a site builder to be collecting data about you! It’s a rare and refreshing experience to visit a new website that doesn’t ask you to accept their cookie policy, and I wanted to provide that.
