It's a stressful time in the world, kids; there's no denying it. We've gotta keep trying hard, being kind, and taking small moments of soothing calmness where we can get it. In that vein, we're pleased to unveil a brand new look for the Showcase Workshop web platform.
It's smooth, it's shapely, and it's distinctly more 'friendly' to look at. A rounded little drop of zen in the chaotic hard-edged torrent of 2020.
It's also (we hope) easier to use. Bigger buttons are easier to click on, and the styles of buttons, text, and tips throughout the platform have been made more consistent.
Let's take a look, shall we?

Ok, one more preview for the road. Here's what the Analytics page looks like at the moment:
And the new style has us looking like this:
Real fresh. Real modern.
This cute new aesthetic is coming to your screens within the next week or so — keep your eyes peeled! A similar style will roll out to the apps not long after.
