Thanks so much, Trevor! That's nice of you to share, and I'm thrilled to hear that you're finding it useful.
Hey Olivier! Thanks so much for the kind words :)
To be honest, I don't really know why people don't share numbers. I've always found it strange (because who really cares?). I think for some businesses there's actually a strategic reason why they don't, but in this case, I'm more just following social norms.
To be a little more transparent, our weekly revenue since launch has been in the thousands of dollars.
UX Power Tools continues to do very well for us :)
I won't give specific numbers, but making real money from a UI kit is still very possible.
Thanks, Donnie! Yeah it's been really impactful in our presentations with clients. They're hyper focused now and always ask good questions.
I love reading articles by designers I look up to. It's a great way to see their professional process, and they always provide great anecdotes from their design careers.

Thanks, Chris! I'm thrilled to hear that it's resonating, and I'm glad you liked the structure of each section. Symbols are incredibly powerful, and I am still exploring all of the fancy ways you can use them!
Just posted an article about making a top nav. Check it out! https://medium.com/ux-power-tools/designing-a-top-nav-in-one-symbol-295b8b0a05a5
Great work, Michael! I really dig the BIG components. Makes it very friendly and approachable. Love that font, too.
Fixed vs. Auto width for symbols would be Italian chef kissing his fingers
If I have a button symbol, I'd love if the button could auto-resize to fit the text contents if the override text is longer or shorter than the base text.
Good question! I start all of my projects with UXPT as the base template. I customize the colors and font(s), then make any updates I want to the symbols.
For something like a navbar, I'll use a combination of existing symbols, text styles, layer styles, and icons to build it out.
It's actually really timely that you ask; I'm writing a navbar tutorial as we speak. I'll update this post when it's live on Medium: https://email@example.com
