    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.

    I don't think this solves a fundamental communication block between designers and developers. Redlining designs just continues the trend of tossing designs back and forth over a wall, which in my experience leads to resentment.

    Near the end of every sprint, I take a half hour to meet with my devs. They present all of their work, we have an open conversation about designs, and take note of any changes as needed. I get that not every team has the ability to work this way, but I think we're a stronger team with a more-polished product because of these meetings.
