2021 — done.
We can’t believe it, either. 2021 has been full of advancements in and connections with the Webflow community. Here’s a look at what we’re grateful for from 2021.
480,000+ sites were #MadeInWebflow in 2021.
Webflow sites now get over 10,000,000,000 visits a month.
...and we love each and every one of them <3
We now have
500+ Partners in our Webflow Experts network.
It’s really never been easier to bring your dream projects to life through Webflow, by working with Experts who know their stuff.
To celebrate this, we launched our first annual Partner Awards. Winners and finalists wowed us with work covering four categories: Excellent Aesthetics, Inclusivity and Social Impact, Innovation and Originality, and Surprise and Delight.
Webflow projects got a lot of love this year.

More features, more fun.
Here are just a few of our updates from this year.
A new age for teamwork
Working together in Webflow got a whole lot better with a big set of improvements to how you collaborate with teammates in the Designer.
Control how stacked elements blend directly in the Style panel, bringing the mix-blend-mode CSS property right into Webflow.
The backdrop-filter CSS property is now in Webflow, enabling you to create blurring and shifting effects in the area behind an element.
Accessibility for all
Design for everyone’s eyes
Vision Preview mode allows you to see how color-blind and visually impaired people experience your site, so that you can design responsibly.
Check your work
Enhancements to our Audit panel help you quickly identify and fix accessibility issues before you hit publish — making building accessible sites easier than ever.
Enterprise is moving on up

We know it’s a lot to take in. Let’s take a short meditation break before continuing on.
In November, we held Webflow's 2nd annual flagship conference, No-Code Conf — all online and 100% free for attendees.
18,363 registrants from 147 countries.
We pledged $10 to Girls Who Code for every registrant — then rounded the total donation up to an even $250,000.
And over 40 speakers.

OMG 🤯🤯🤯 @webflow @NoCodeConf is giving me butterflies in my stomach - can't wait to try the Membership Features, the UI features and Business Logics
Can't believe I'm even typing this, but I came in 1st at the Speed Build Challenge during #NoCodeConf 🥳 😁 💃🏿 So glad I got to participate in such a fun and inspiring activity, and I loved seeing all the unique builds everyone came up with!!
We can't wait for the next No-Code Conf!
We made 115,921 new friends on social media this year.
Tweets that made us lol.
Finding random div classes in old projects like
Learned webflow by watching their tutorials on 2x speed. I felt like Neo downloading martial arts in the matrix.
All that time learning to code just for @webflow to come and make all my visual design dreams come true.
In 2021, students earned 3,761 certifications and watched 242,899 hours of lessons.
McGuire, Sara, Miguel, and Grímur earned 112 eye rolls and 93 laughs for a final eye roll to laugh ratio of 1.2:1 — a new record.
It's criminal just how entertaining and educational these are. You guys are a masterclass in product educational experience.
— Martin McGreevy
I never had to watch a Webflow tutorial twice. Every tutorial is clean and 100% understandable. I don't need to skip paid sponsors or like this follow that parts. They are really the grandmasters of Tutorials.
Imma be real, I've watched thousands, if not millions of tutorials where so much time is just empty talking. These are straight to the point, informative, very well made AND funny. Sign me up!
We don’t have to tell you twice that knowledge is power. Here are the most watched tutorials of 2021.
All in all, we built a lot of skills this year. But for Grímur, domain name interpretation wasn’t one of them.
Teamwork makes the dream work.
228 new team members joined Webflow over the last 12 months.
That means we’re now at 389 team members, across 17 countries, and going strong.
Sure, this site is supposed to be all about 2021, but we can’t help but share the things we’re excited about for 2022.
Big things are coming with collaboration tools, Logic, and Memberships — stay tuned for more.
