    Fantastic implementation of search for DN.

    Things I dig about it:

    1. The live search makes it seem lightning fast ⚡️

    2. Much better UX for filters (it currently requires a selection plus an extra button press before sorting, which seems clunky)

    3. The All Time, Last 24hr, Past week, etc. is great, because most of the time, I'm trying to find a recent link, not a post from 4+ years ago. Possibly even a more precise date filter could be useful?

    All in all, definitely an improvement on the existing search, and I'd love to see something like this implemented on DN.

    A few of my faves:

    • Inside Intercom from Intercom: covers product design, product marketing, growth and more
    • Hustle from Funsize: product design, culture, teams, etc.
    • Games UX: UX & Gaming

    While I think this product is really neat, I think the marketing page copy could use some flavor.

    Subform is a visual tool that surfaces layout constraints at design-time in a useful and usable way—while still being true to the production medium.

    These are really well done, and I remember being impressed by these when I set up my Google Home.

    This is so neat! I think it'd be cool to have some sort capabilities based on time, like "Last month" "Last 6 months" "2017" etc.

    Also, I appreciate you making the color palettes front and center, however, I don't like having to hover to view the name of each product. Maybe have the name always under each scheme? With more info potentially?

    Nevertheless, great work!

    Skeptical about this. Dreamweaver was released 20 years ago and here we are. Webflow gets a lot right as a WYSIWYG, but this just seemed like an to push people onto their platform.

    These notch memes are getting weird.

    They hire external agencies for strong branding and marketing design. The companies that you mentioned have amazing product design teams, but when it comes to creating a one-off marketing site, it's often easier and cheaper to hire an agency for the work.
