Figma's been killing it lately. I love their weeklong sprints and getting "Figma Wednesdays" with new updates and bug fixes. The community is pretty vibrant too over on Spectrum.chat.
I'm kind of disappointed to have the name spoiled in the title like this. Maybe let the others that like the little surprises to stay surprises ☹️
Design is solid. I especially like the flowchart style for the "How it Works" section. Ticked the box for being in-fashion with the euro-style people illustrations.
That pricing though... Holy moly $61/mo for the first tier after "free".
Right, I think that's my point. Affinity Designer is currently $50 one-time fee and look at the abundance of features it has. This would be at least $144 for a year.
This looks like a pretty great tool, but I really wish that all of these standalone apps didn't come with a subscription tied to it. I can see using Spirit every now and then for projects, but having a constant bill of $15/mo when I'm working on something else besides animation would just make me feel negatively towards it every time I use it. I could see this easily being a $30 or $50 one-time app purchase. Compare this to the complexity of some of the $50 Affinity apps and I start to devalue it quickly. $144/yr for this very specific tool? I'm not too sure.
Great work! I'll also upvote anything promoting Webflow
I've been a fan of some of the groups on Spectrum.chat. The Figma community there is especially active. https://spectrum.chat/figma
I thought the faux chat window that follows you throughout was semi distracting ... and then the REAL intercom chat window popped up over the fake one. So many things to try to focus on. Oh, and not a fan of that new style permeating through companies now (dropbox et al). They aren't really convincing me that their little widget isn't going to be a nice, seamless component to add to my website. In fact, it feels like I'm letting them take over any site I put them on.
I really like the color palette. Well done! :)
