    I love this idea. It's so important to get your design team together when everyone is so deep in the woods on their own projects to get our creative / collaborative gears turning on something non-work related that's also fun and challenging... solid idea & execution!

    It doesn't wipe off with your hands / arms / elbows moving around??

    Really, really solid. I would LOVE a case study on how you built this in webflow -- I haven't used the tool yet but this is a huge testament to its power. Bravo, Jon!

    Guys! This is what she does. I think it's an awesome experimental representation of her aesthetic and her vision, and I LIKE that I had to play around a bit to figure out how it worked. Come on, look at her URL. Did you really expect the straightforward case study grid?

    The ladder icon for the "About" section really sealed the deal for me. Bravo.

    Wow, yeah... no.

    The logo just doesn't work when scaled down. The website has too many different indicators and typographic styles to have any clear hierarchy, and with all the colors, there is way too much going on.

    At least they responded to the criticism and will use that to inform how they move forward!

    I just started playing with Bodymovin today, so I'm super excited to see this for native apps! Can't wait to play.

    Cloud App is the best! https://www.getcloudapp.com

    It will automatically turn any screen recording you make into a GIF , and upload it to your own server. You can also annotate any screenshots or images you want simply and easily, and organize your files however makes sense to you. It has been a godsend and I use it every single day.

    I'm personally very excited about this. Sure, I agree about the clutter, I think it could be laid out a bit more intuitively, but I've been waiting for something like this. Working within a company with 150+ people, and in channels that span multiple disciplines, it can be difficult to follow multiple threads and find the feedback pertaining to specific questions efficiently and easily. I'm excited to try it out!
