Freebies.ByPeople Revamped

Juan Pablo Sarmiento @jpsarmiento

After hearing some feedback we realized that our side-project Freebies.ByPeople's UI & aesthetics were progressing in a different tone from our mother site so we were working on reducing this visual gap between ByPeople and the subdomain Freebies.

It's been also almost 2 long months where we had the time to:

  • Create a nice & fluid animation for our header.
  • Improve the loading speed not only on the landing but also on all the site (We needed to sacrifice some cool preview gifs tho 😥 )
  • Test different cards & layouts for our posts previews.
  • Static or not: That's was the dilemma about the categories menu.
  • Keep growing the collection and hunting more & more good commercial-use freebies for designers & developers.

How does it look? Every feedback or roasting is completely welcome and appreciated 🙏
