Website redesign — flying to new frontiers 🚀

You may have already noticed while reading this, our website and blog have received an other-worldly makeover! This has been works for a while now and we couldn’t be happier with what the team put together.

The new dark-themed website takes inspiration from the grandest space of all, and you might find some easter eggs from our favorite Sci-fi shows and movies. Let us know what you think of the new design on Twitter.

The design tokens landscape is about to change 🤫

There’s something big on the horizon, but you’ll have to wait a bit to find out more. We’re incredibly excited about what’s to come, it’ll also be live on our Product Hunt the same day, so stay tuned for that.
