    Gosh, that is a nice interpretation of the desktop icon!

    Wasn't trying to be sneaky. I actually had a conversation with the mods about it before posting it. Referral links don't violate any community Guidelines, especially since the link is to a legitimate feature release from Notion — a great product. That being said, I took the referral portion off the URL because of some complaints.

    Mathieu, I love the original typeface and the grainy feel of the print magazine. Dan Rubin and I were chatting about it on Twitter. It's gorgeous, mate!

    I've really enjoyed using Laravel Forge for hosting. It connects to a your DigitalOcean Droplet or AWS, is affordable, and a very scalable way to host sites, manage SSL, and so forth.

    I love me some Statamic. There are lots of great CMS options these days.

    One of the beautiful things about 3.0 is that you can use it as a headless CMS:

    Instead of using Kirby's front-end templates, you can use it to generate a JSON API that can be consumed by a static front-end like Gatsby or Next.js.

    For me, the fact that it is "flat-file" means I don't have to worry about porting a database around. Using Laravel Valet I can have a local dev environment up in no time. With Laravel Mix I can leverage a streamlined Webpack asset compilation for JS and CSS/Sass/PostCSS and it takes the fuss out of the painful areas of building on a CMS.

    Also between Kirby's Guide and Cookbook and their Starterkit, it is very easy to get up and running and start building layouts and the kind of content you want to create throughout various areas of the site.

    Kirby's paradigms are simple and straightforward. As a designer all of these things remove barriers for me in being able to design the kind of experience I want for projects.

    I love the way they have built an embedded interactive demo that allows you to experiment with Notion real-time before signing up.

    I've really loved Are.na for curating all different kinds of visual and website-related content.
