Building company website in D8

Hi,
we are planing to build our company website in D8. We have a lot of experience with Sf but this will be our first real project in D8. Project is not so big, we have homepage, contact form, blog, team page and works. My question do you suggest starting with Drupal Core Distribution or with something else?
Any module for Blog and Works (References)

Thank you.
