Meet us in the margin


A designer's messy work space illustration

Hello Smiles Davis,

We’ve missed rounding up the latest design articles and thoughts on the industry and sharing them with you. And so our newsletter is back — and has a brand new look and name. Since our last dispatch, our team introduced our newest product, Notebooks. With Notebooks, design teams can share context, get feedback, document decisions, and drive alignment across the product development process. With what we’ve been learning from design teams using Notebooks and the findings from the State of Design 2021 report — we’re certain that a better design process is possible. Join us at In the Margin to explore how designers work today, what we can improve, and how we can achieve better outcomes.
