I design and develop bespoke Webflow websites that don’t suck.

My mum says my websites are beautiful.

And my mum is always right.

What, you don't trust my mom? This is how she used to dress me up.

I rest my case.

More than 84% of marketing websites look the same*. You could swap their brand logos and nobody would notice.

Why? Because unwise people hire cheap freelancers from UpWork or Fiverr that snatch a template that's been used 59,386 times and butcher customise it for you. But hey, look at the bright side: they work as fast as they vanish after their website is online, sometimes even earlier than that. What they leave behind are unusable and ugly websites that don’t actually represent their customer’s brand.

I don’t do that.

I design bespoke websites tailored to you and your brand, and I do it by getting you involved in the design process.

You’ll have to work with me. Not a lot, but enough. I know you don’t mind. We’re all alike, we all think we know better, we all think we are right. Sometimes we do. That’s why I want you on my team. Most importantly, if you have contributed to the design I can blame you if it sucks you’ll love it even more, and you’ll never get unpleasant surprises.

Fun fact: 91% of people believe something is true if the claim is backed by a percentage.

Why would people believe you’re legit, if your website looks like 💩?

Your work is beautiful, elegant, luxurious, and yet… your website isn’t.

You speak about care, perfection, attention to detail, but your point of contact with your next customer is mostly broken and feels off-brand.

Why would you spend all that time, energy, and money on your work, your brand, and your marketing, only to ruin everything when people first meet you online? Ever wandered why you only get new customers from word of mouth? This is why.

So, what does this all mean?

How would I know? I’m not the Dalai Lama.

Ah, the focus on beauty you mean?

I could tell you it is to get more customers, make you more money, more success, “more passion, more footwork”… but let’s face it: we both know we’re doing it for your ego. I want you to feel cared for, understood, and proud to share what you do with your friends, family, and with the people you truly love: your future customers. ❤️

A meaningless abstract pattern.
This is a meaningless picture.

I am the Webflow developer that you need.

But am I the one you deserve?

A silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark (mode) knight. 🦇

I promise this is the last picture of mini-me you’ll see here.

Why should you care about working with a Webflow professional partner? The answer lies in the famous “Two P’s and an I”.*

  1. Professionalism
    Experts tend to like following guidelines and best practices to build well-developed projects. I tend to like following guidelines and best practices to build well-developed projects.
    So? If you go mad one day and decide you don’t want to work with me anymore, the next developer will be able to work on the project without needing to get a psychology degree to understand what was on my mind when I built it. What does it mean? More freedom and less costs. I don’t have to hold you hostage with cheap tricks. My awesomeness will be enough to keep you glued to me. 😎
  2. Performance
    I know you are dying to ask me about SEO. Most people should not care about SEO. In fact, nobody should care about SEO. Everybody thinks it’s the secret sauce to success. It’s not. Your marketing is. What is marketing? Ask Seth Godin.
    But yes, my Webflow websites are optimised to follow technical SEO guidelines. You won’t see any warnings in your Google Search Console and you’ll get awesome results from your page-speed insights. What will you do with them? You'll tell me...
  3. Integrity
    Ok, it’s actually integrations. Third-party software integrations to be specific, but it didn’t sound as good. There’s also not too much to say about them: if you need something to be connected to your website, we’ll find a way to make it work. Via no-code or with code.

Not actually famous: I made them up.

Still scared of ghosts? I’ll be there for you.

Have you ever worked with a cheap noob that doesn’t care about you? Have they left you with an unusable Webflow project? Did they not teach you how to use it? Have they ghosted you right after getting the money? How do I know this? Am I asking too many questions?

After I deliver your project to you and get your website online, I’ll teach you how to manage it and update your content to keep it fresh. You’ll feel confident to keep up with your marketing by yourself so you won’t have to bother me everyday with boring questions rely on me, but if you’ll need my help you’ll know where to find me. And I’ll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour. I'll be there for you, like I've been there before. I'll be there for you, 'cause you're there for me too.

Ghosts aren’t that scary. Ghosters are scarier.

Don’t be an impostor.

Every day marketers launch promotion campaigns faster than Elon Musk sprinkles Starlink satellites into orbit. Do you know how they're doing? No? Neither do they. Why? 'Cause they're not measuring shit.

Keep your impostor syndrome at bay: start tracking your campaigns. Get data to support your decisions and justify your marketing budget. I'll help you spy on your users integrate your website with analytics services to get you out of the dark. I can’t promise that you'll make something out of the numbers you’ll see, but at least you won't feel like a shaman trying to predict if tomorrow is going to rain by sensing the humidity with the tip of your tongue.

This bit is for fellow designers who just need Webflow development.

I'm a Designer too.

Have you ever had a nightmarish design hand-off session? You know, when the dev can’t figure out what you want because they only understand brown boxes and they have the aesthetic taste of a Vogon beaurocrat?

Don’t worry. I get you, and I get your designs. Plus, if you are feeling lazy and your designs are not fully thought out, I'll be able to help you fill in the blanks. It'll cost you a bit, but you know what they say: "there's no free lunch". As a matter of fact, having lunch is the reason why I work. If you know where to get a free lunch, tell me. Please keep in mind that I'm lactose intolerant. 🍑💨

Look at all my badges. I couldn’t decide which one looked best on my website, so I added all of them.

Go crazy with your website designs.

If there's something Webflow won't allow us to do, we'll code our way through it. "But how?" —you may ask— "you're only an esteemed and distinguished designer..." Fear not! I have a B.E. in Computer Engineering and I've worked as a Software Engineer for more than half a decade. GSAP animations? WebGL shaders? Don’t know what I’m talking about? No worries, I’ll take care of it.

Is what you are doing worth talking about?

We’re all special, we’re all unique, nobody does what we do the way we do it. Except, we’re all normal, we’re all the same, loads of people do what we do.

A bit of an existential drama, I know. I can’t do anything about that. Here’s a picture of my beloved fat cat to cheer you up. He’s dead now.
Tonzo, the late beloved cat of a Web designer and Webflow developer.

What do you really do? Who are you doing it for? Why are you not like the others? Who are the others? Are we in danger of being invaded by aliens? Should we stock up on food and build bunkers? Sorry, got side-tracked. But again, why would people care about what you do? Why would they tell other people about it?

I can help you identify what is unique about you, at least in the eyes of your loved ones, your target audience, and find the clearest possible way to communicate it.

We need to drive people away from your website.

No, I’m not having a laugh at you.

Confusion is your business’ worst enemy. If we don’t get your marketing story straight and your website readers don't understand quickly what you do and why it matters to them, the money you spent on promoting what you do goes down in the bin, and I don’t like that. Especially if the bin is not mine.

I've been explaining things to people for more than 30 years. I started when I was 2. I couldn't speak back then, but I've always managed to make myself clear. Since then I've learned how to pay attention and listen closely to what people say and help them organise their thoughts.

We’ll make people understand immediately if what we’re talking about matters to them. If not, they should bounce. Do you know what the people that don’t bounce do? First they pay attention. hen, they pay us.

I know sending people away from you sounds scary, but don’t worry, I got you. What’s more comforting than the sound of a notification from your bank’s app for a juicy incoming transfer?

Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

Like a 2-year-old, I might get a bit annoying while getting your story straight, but I promise it’ll be worth it.

We'll get to the core of what you do, who do you do it for, and why would it matter to them. We’ll make your value proposition as clear as the Dublin skies on those beautiful 15 minutes back in the summer of 1965, and we’ll make sure that everything we do is aligned with your purpose and marketing goals.

Once we get there, we’ll also get to the thing we all secretly crave for: a Big Mac with fries and a large Coke 🍔🍟🥤 happy paying customers.

Who am I?

Luca

No, I don’t live on the second floor. I know, bummer. Anyway, here's my beautiful pint of Guinness® pourer certificate for no reason whatsoever.
A "Beautiful Guinness pint pourer" certificate.

What am I? Human.

But also a self-taught* web designer, classically-taught software engineer, Webflow-taught-and-certified Expert and Professional Partner and, most importantly, certified Beautiful Pint of Guinness® pourer.

Some say, my mum included, that I am a good teacher. As a pupil of myself I can confirm this is true.

Who’s Quinto?

My grandpa.

Studio Quinto? It’s my one-person (web) design and Webflow development studio.

I am not an agency, I work as a freelancer. I can put all my attention on you. I don’t have to spread it thin on other 53 projects that I’m delegating to underpaid interns to keep my business alive. You’ll get more value out of your money, but I know you already know that. 😎

Why call it a studio then? Because it sounds cool and makes me feel good I have other great people around that sometimes help me.

I get help from them when:

  1. I don’t know how to do something
    accessibility audits, logo design, hand-knitted dog sweaters, etc.
  2. I don’t want to do something
    SEO audits and optimisation, running Ad campaigns, cleaning the mess I made after trying to make croissants for the first time, etc.

Here’s what we have learned today.

I’m a designer and an engineer.

I keep my promises, I show up on time, I deliver on time.

I’ll design and build your bespoke Webflow website. It’ll be a beautiful place, on-brand, and in line with your marketing strategy in which you’ll tell your story clearly to get loads of new customers.

are you in yet?*

Tell me what you want, what you really really want, and I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want.
