Comment (by beafialho):

 Hello! Following up on the last iterations of the Gutenberg page, posted
 here: https://make.wordpress.org/design/2021/10/29/redesign-of-the-
 gutenberg-page/ I wanted to give you an update on the latest adjustments
 done after the feedback from the comments in the post.

 Here are a few of them:
 - Explored showing a simple explanation of “blocks” and “patterns” on
 hover under those terms. Here's a video of that:
 https://cloudup.com/cZSwvHe8SzJ. However I'm not sure how that could
 coexist with the interactiveness of the page, which makes me think it's
 not the best solution.
 - Explored a subtle animation for the patterns screenshots (still in
 progress). Quick example here: https://cloudup.com/cUxDiHZifk9
 - Added better explanations for terms that newcomers may not be familiar
 with. Some examples: https://cloudup.com/cKWc5RQK9VA
 - Replaced “Try it Today in WordPress” with “Try Gutenberg today in
 WordPress” to increase recall/association
 - Switched “Gutenberg ❤️ everyone” to sentence case
 - Rephrased the patterns section

 I tried to take most suggested edits in consideration, but overall
 attempted to keep the page's focus on what can be done with the editor and
 keep it simple.

 If it's possible to launch both light and dark modes, and have them
 changing according to the user's system preferences, it would be
 wonderful. If not, I suggest we focus on launching one first (light mode)
 because this page's refresh is long overdue.

 Here's a rough demo page I built using the Blockbase theme:
 And here's the updated Figma prototype:

 Looking forward to any other relevant feedback you may have!
