Thank you! Yeah, once again this has made me appreciate the work frontend developers do, especially while trying my luck at building a custom video player that works on different platforms and in different browsers. :)
It's built with Gatsby, MDX, Emotion, Framer Motion, react-three-fiber and Lottie. Hosted on Netlify. Fonts are from Klim Type Foundry and Pangram Pangram.
Tools I've used: VS Code, Sketch, Blender, Procreate, After Effects, Framer X, Codesandbox and some more.
Had a lot of fun working on it! Although, at times I felt overwhelmed by technical challenges outside of my comfort zone as a designer, but resources and active help from peers and the open source community got me back on track. Definitely learned a lot new things.
Started to spend time on it during the winter holiday break last year and for sure am not finished yet or ever will be, but for the moment I am happy enough to share.
Feedback, thoughts and questions welcome!
I've went through a fair share of tools myself and ended up using Framer for most of these tasks. Here's why:
Also heard good things about Protopie. For me personally, I like about Framer that it's built on standard web technologies and React, so everything I learn along the way, I can apply beyond prototyping with Framer, no evil lock-in. Also Framer's UI fits in neatly with what you might be used to from design tools like Sketch and Figma or IDEs like XCode, obviously they are putting a lot of thought into that.
Not even closely keeping up with all of these, but hand picking single episodes whenever I feel like listening to a design related podcast (typically on longer train rides) from this pool:
I didn't find any information on the amount of participants, their regional distribution or anything else which gives a hint on how meaningful these numbers might be. Did I miss that maybe?

I guess you need to switch the language to English (UK or US) to see the old design Bryan is talking about. You can choose the language at the very bottom. The design is not the only difference though, the english landing pages also seem to speak more to business prospects while all the non-english landing pages put more of an equal weight on private/freelancer prospects and larger businesses. Not sure, but I think I remember that both these designs have been around in parallel already at the time of the launch of the new brand design. Looking at both, I feel the new brand design makes the baby-blueish-gray older design look pale and dated in comparison.
Probably an intentional part of the experience. I started to get 403 errors just now.
Can you organize (group or better: tag) fonts, e.g. by brand or project and sync these groups/tags to the whole team as well? I think that was the one crucial missing team feature last time I checked.
Just wait a little bit if you rely on Sketch Runner a lot. It's currently incompatible, but they're working on a fix: https://twitter.com/Sketch_Runner/status/1047091781345718272
