Ace Studio House: Webflow Development & Design Studio in Shanghai

Patrick Kho

About Ace Studio House

Ace Studio House is a web design and development studio based in Shanghai, China that offers UI & UX design, Webflow CMS design and development, WeChat mini programs, and brand strategy

Their clients include a diverse range of companies including Bulgari, Accenture, and KFC.

The Website

Headquarters: China
Industry: Design
CMS: Webflow

Ace Studio House’s website features a rich media experience. A wide array of gifs and animated images are incorporated to showcase their services and previous work.

This is further enhanced by the custom interactive elements the website offers.

This custom website is built with the same Content Management System that they use for their clients, and is loved by developers globally: Webflow.

However, because of the challenges that websites inherently face in China, the studio’s website faced several difficulties with its China delivery.

The Challenges

Webflow is a fantastic CMS platform, and one that we love for its customizability and usability for developers and non-technical folks alike. However, like all CMS platforms - the websites they help to build, host, and launch, encounter both speed and functionality issues.

Interactive and well-designed elements added to the experience of the site. However, because of their large size - their slow loading times are simply amplified without optimization.

From China, the studio’s website would only fully load within 35 seconds.

That’s where the Chinafy team came in.
