 > Do you think we're not going to change the About page with each release
 Ideally, the design/structure of the About page would not keep changing
 with each release moving forward, and it will just be a matter of swapping
 in the header artwork and content each time. I believe the idea of a more
 holistic redesign has come up before — but if the design does get
 revisited in the future, we could think of it as a new template to be used
 moving forward.

 >I'm worried about the timeline if we need to wait for the About page
 visuals to be done before we can make the dashboard updates every release.
 I think the Dashboard would just be an image and release number that gets
 updated each time (with the rest of the copy being high-level enough to
 keep for a while). I definitely understand the concern about waiting on
 the About page artwork but maybe there are ways to streamline the process
 and make sure it's only an image handoff for each release. For example, we
 could set up a background image Figma file for the asset creation so there
 would be a template with the exact dimensions and output instructions to
 follow for whoever helps with the design for the next release.
