    I think system 2 is the smarter move. Not that one looks better than the other but system 2 can evolve with future design trends and will be more functional overall. The icons can be flattened out if things need to be simplified or built into 3d objects in the world of VR/AR. I think system 2 is more unique overall. The disconnected lines with the tapered edge will be a nice differentiator while system 1 seems more trendy and current style. Also, the master icon will be a nice evolution from the current Firefox logo which will keep some of that brand history.

    Either way, they both look great!

    It's extremely similar to Collaborative Fund but, in my opinion, not as effective. Being a new studio, the site needs more content. Whether that is case studies, talking about process, values, etc to help validate the team/studio. The site clearly states what you do but not the why or how.

    Aside from that, it's a clean layout with nice typography. Being that it's such a type heavy site, you may want to adjust padding/widths or add   for certain blocks to get rid of orphans.

    I was wondering the same thing when I saw them. Regardless, it's an amazing set of icons/illustrations.

    I doubt it will topple Helvetica. They are two different typefaces with distinct styles. And as someone else referenced, Helvetica has it's own brand and history that will never be replaced.

    Side note: I'm working on a project and noticed that Plex Sans and Open Sans have similar characteristics. If Open Sans and Ubuntu had a baby it would be Plex Sans.

    Saw this commercial this weekend. It was the first time seeing dropbox advertise on TV too.

    I don't know where I'm supposed to look. The site has no hierarchy or identity anymore.

    Great work. Some of the text gets hard to read when placed over certain images but overall looks good.

    Reminds me of https://www.kikk.be/
