Like Tui Teka, I too have had to sacrifice being away from my own mother, living my life as a musician ... it was only right to cover this classic and dedicate it to my mother for all she has done for me”.

Greyhound Comes With Even More Power

Overview of all the features included in Greyhound Agency Template

Premium, custom, simply great

Yes, we know... it's easy to say it, but that's the fact. We did put a lot of thought into the template. Greyhound Agency was designed by an award-winning designer. Layouts you will find in our template are custom made to fit the industry after carefully made research.

Optimised for speed

We used our best practices to make sure your new website loads fast. All of the images are compressed to have as little size as possible. Whenever possible we used vector formats - the format made for the web.


Greyhound Agency is optimized to offer a frictionless experience on every screen. No matter how you combine our sections, they will look good on desktop, tablet, and phone.

Reusable animations

Both complex and simple animations are an inseparable element of modern website. We created our animations in a way that can be easily reused, even by Webflow beginners.


Our template is modular, meaning you can combine different sections as well as single elements, like buttons, images, etc. with each other without losing on consistency of the design. Long story short, different elements will always look good together.

100% customisable

On top of being modular, Greyhound Agency was created using the best Webflow techniques, like: global Color Swatches, reusable classes, symbols and more.


Greyhound Agency includes a blog and projects collections that are made on the powerful Webflow CMS. This will let you add new content extremely easily.

Figma included

To give you 100% control over the design, together with Webflow project, you also get the Figma file.
