Celerity had a unique set of requirements. They needed a website that could be their canvas, where they could feel empowered to create new pages, layouts and edit content with ease. One of the things we love doing here at Saigon Digital is to build tailored CMS solutions for our clients. Celerity was no different, we built a WordPress backend to allow for easy drag-and-drop editing for their component library.
Celerity’s new brand refresh and design required a strong set of frontend UI skills to bring the prototypes to life, it was quite the challenge alongside the go live deadline, nevertheless our team at Saigon Digital were more than up for it!

We love building with the JAMstack - and it’s all about creating modern, fast, and SEO-friendly websites. So, we decided to go with Gatsby.js, which was the clear choice for us as it’s built so well alongside WordPress as a Headless CMS. Our team already has a ton of experience with the Gatsby data layer & GraphQL alongside WordPress, and the requirements for this project favoured this approach.
The previous Celerity website, which was initially built on WordPress, faced issues with speed and security. To address these concerns, we embarked on a comprehensive renovation, transitioning to a JAMstack architecture. This transformation not only significantly improved the website's speed and overall performance, but also enhanced its security, ensuring a smoother and safer user experience and to future proof the website for years to come.
And that's not all! We also introduced some captivating elements to the website using the GSAP framework and react-spring for animations, making it an even more engaging digital experience.
Harnessing the Power of Flexibility
- Gatsby.js took the reins on the client side, generating static HTML pages from React components. WordPress, acting as the Headless CMS, dished out content via Gatsby's data layer & GraphQL APIs.
- To make styling a breeze, we wielded the mighty Tailwind CSS, a utility-first CSS framework that simplifies component styling.
Choosing the Right Tools
For the frontend UI and building the components, our team is a big fan of Tailwind CSS. It makes crafting highly customised user interfaces a breeze, which is ideal for accommodating our client's unique design preferences. Celerity uses HubSpot for their internal Marketing, this allowed us to work alongside the HubSpot form API where created gated content for their resources & downloads so their Marketing team could create high converting landing pages.
Crafting Excellent Performance
This project was a resounding success! We took Celerity's unique ideas and transformed them into a website that's fast, secure, and as unique as they are. We're thrilled with the results, and Celerity is now ready to embrace a new era of online success. Saigon Digital is now proud to say we help support the current live website and carry out continued SEO work to keep the website ticking along nicely.
Celerity now boasts a modern and fresh website. With faster load times, improved security, and a flexible CMS with its drag and drop page builder, they're all set to make their digital mark.
Since going live, Celerity has been on a mission to create new pages and content which has been a breeze. A harmonious blend of technology and creativity, our JAMstack approach has set Celerity on the path to digital greatness.
