Talking to other design teams needs to happen more often. Here’s how we approach these discussions at Webflow — and how you can take part.
We didn’t want to feel constrained by a virtual format as we tried to transform our in-person retreat into a remote one. While we couldn’t replicate the beauty of in-person meetings, we pushed ourselves to think about what we could accomplish remotely that we couldn’t do in person.
