    • design with a mindset to make our output be a creative beacon within the community

    • Today, we are setting themes for our design language in 2021, designing for a cohesive user experience between our different sites and products, revisiting the billions of emails that WeTransfer sends out each year, shaping how we bring our subscription offering into the world, and talking about the next steps for our editorial platform WePresent.
