Maybe you read this on the Internet, and you want to get whatever Muriel might be? You’ve come to the right place!

Muriel is a real thing that we’re building over here at Automattic Design. We’ve realized that there are are a few pain points that design teams like ours are facing like:

  • We’re completely distributed (i.e. no centralized headquarters or offices) so it’s important to develop a common language for design that can work without walls or other things you might be used to in a regular studio environment. Do you have this problem too?
  • We know that inclusive design is super important, but most design processes out there tend to be a little … exclusive. Especially in tech. Have you noticed this at all?
  • We’re a team that has traditionally excelled at the detail work of design, but we’ve never had to face the challenges that come with using data. So we’re getting really good at it and we want to integrate data into how we pursue design. Sound familiar?
Technology makes new possibilities.

Our company creed includes the phrase,

“I am more motivated by impact than money, and I know that Open Source is one of the most powerful ideas of our generation.”

So our work on Muriel will enter the Public Domain as soon as it gets ready to share. If you’re interested in Muriel, sign up from the purple link right here.
