I like that much better!
Oh wow, hadn't noticed! That's awesome!
OK, but it seems to me like showing some screenshots of the fonts, or at least a list of their main typefaces, would be the minimum to make such a list useful?
I would strongly suggest reconsidering the name. Not only does it tell you almost nothing about what the app does, it's also really hard to remember properly because the double plural means two chances to get the name wrong. Even from a purely grammatical point of view it's weird, as it's not clear why "tools" is pluralized since this is a single app.
I agree, as a long-time user of MailChimp it annoys me that they spend so much energy on branding and marketing while their core product improves at such a slow pace, if at all.
Now the only one left is Skala…
Good execution but the tone is so pretentious… "As a brand, we believe movement ignites opportunity.". "Our typography is as unique and easy to use as we are". This bland corporate-speak takes away any goodwill the otherwise very nice case study might have generated in me. Reading this it sounds like they think they invented the letter U and the color black…
Very cool idea! I'll probably steal it at some point :)
As designers we should be well-placed to know that people follow in the path you design for them. The downvote button is well-understood to mean "I don't like this" throughout the internet, no matter what its creator originally intended. Designing against human nature is an uphill battle, and human nature usually wins…
We believe the philosophy of Downvoting should be mainly for unwanted content, spam, etc, and not for disagreeing with a comment.
Biggest lie of the internet…
