    I know I'm going to be the outlier here but I don't understand why people on DN and Dribbble fawn over everything Stripe does.

    All I see is a generic landing page with way too much copy, a lack of visual contrast and poor typographic hierarchy. I guess because pastel gradients?

    I do appreciate that they don't use full-bleed cheesy lifestyle photos, but I still come away from this page struggling to understand their value proposition. This article does a much better job communicating the selling points than they do on their own landing page: https://venturebeat.com/2017/05/25/stripe-opens-express-sign-ups-for-connect-marketplaces/

      You're not alone in your thinking.

      I'll polarize with you. Also to note that Dribbble is just a spec in the design world.

      Content strategy / copywriting issue? I agree halfway. They should be much more concise and bold with their verbage.

      Copy aside, this layout and design are fine-tuned. The design conveys professionalism and trust on another level. Calling it generic is certainly an outlier position.

      Still, TLDR.

      ...a lack of visual contrast and poor typographic hierarchy

      What? I disagree. Break these down. Where's the poor typographic hierarchy?

    Very fresh and informative. I would love to know what tools they use at Stripe to make those animations with 3D transforms etc. Surely they are not hand coded.
