There are many ways to build a new website, but it can often be a slow, painful process for both beginners and those who have been working in the field for a long time.

With the modern tooling in the Jamstack world, we can take advantage of tools like Gatsby that can allow us to rapidly spin up a new project and TakeShape that can provide us with an all-inclusive content management system (CMS) to focus on the important parts of what makes our websites unique.

In this collection, we'll walk through building a new company website from scratch. After creating a new example project in TakeShape, we'll use the TakeShape API to fetch that data and dynamically build a website using a Gatsby Starter for a TakeShape Startup project. With your new website, we'll learn how we can customize it to make it your own by adding new content and changing the branding like the logo and colors.
