    Be good to hear if anyone has been using the AutoLayout plugin and now switching over to this, is the built in Figma solution powerful enough?

    I love this. You know why? It's different! In a web where everything is pretty much the same, styles aside, this stands out.

    I agree with some of the points about how to start it, but it looks like it's been tweaked since then so is a little better.

    For me, I started reading the article before I noticed the 3px progress slider at the very bottom of the page. After I already clicked like 10x and then saw that it wasn't even 1/7 of the way through... I was done.

    I was looking for 3 things when I clicked the article:

    1. What's this advert you wanted to call out? (I'm interested)
    2. What's so good/bad about it? (Give me your POV)
    3. What did that advert do for them/you & why? (Metrics/Insights)

    My suggestions - make your argument shorter and snappier and think about doing it all in one page that a user can scroll/skim that type of info. Other than that, your design and illustrations are great. Good job :-)

    Very nice @R.Kamushken!

    One point, and this also relates to your other design kits (which I bought all of them yesterday), your naming conventions could be a little more generic. For example, the type styles names are called things like 96 sp • H1 / Abril Fatface.

    An issue with that, is that if I change the font size, it's no longer 96! Same if I changed the typeface, it's no longer Abril! Then I end up with type styles that confuse me when actually it's something like 72pt H1 / Work Sans!

    This is more a suggestion for your other kits rather than this one, but perhaps just something simpler like H1, H2, body, etc., would be enough?

    The name of it though... courage is wearing those earphones without your product.
