Build your own website:

The best way to solidify your Framer skills is by putting them into practice. In this section, we'll explore the process of building your own website from scratch, as well as the option of replicating an existing design to hone your skills.


Copy and existing website

One of the most effective ways to solidify your Framer skills is by trying to replicate existing designs. It's very easy to fall into the trap of "tutorial hell," where you consume tutorial after tutorial without ever putting your knowledge into practice. Copying real-world designs forces you to apply what you've learned and build something tangible.

This approach allows you to deconstruct and reverse-engineer the work of experienced designers and developers. By studying their techniques, code structure, and design decisions, you can gain valuable insights and improve your understanding of Framer's capabilities.


Build a new website

While replicating existing designs is an excellent way to test your skills, the ultimate way to put your knowledge into practice lies in building your own website from scratch.


From ideation and wire-framing to prototyping and deployment, creating a website from the ground up will challenge you and make you ready to start working on building websites for clients or even start making templates to sell.

Learning Framer is an investment in your design and development skills that can pay dividends very quickly. With the abundance of resources available, from free courses to paid options, you have everything you need to master this powerful tool. So now, just pick one of the resources outlined in this guide and stick to it until you finish the course. You’ll see that it will provide you with the knowledge and practical experience necessary to bring your designs to life with Framer.
