Comment (by critterverse):

 Hi all, I
 [https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C02S78ZAL/p1648571478863619 asked]
 for volunteers to help with the About page in the Design channel recently
 and @fcoveram reached out to say he'd love to help with the design for
 this release 😀

 Also wanted to follow up on this question that @ryelle
 [https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C02RQBWTW/p1648499368018799 asked]
 on Slack the other day:

 >Does anyone know if we’ll be reusing the same design again, or is there a
 plan to set up a new layout?

 My sense is that we should try to reuse the same layout since the
 Dashboard banner will also need similar updates. I think the most
 streamlined approach would be to focus on updating these items:

 • About, Credit, Freedoms, Privacy pages — replace balloon header artwork
 but reuse built elements as much as possible (the new graphic can likely
 use similar positioning to maintain the same responsive scaling, etc)
 •  About page — replace content/images
 • Dashboard welcome banner — replace balloon artwork but reuse built
 elements as much as possible (there could be similar color mapping across
 admin styles, etc)

 I opened a new ticket to discuss the Dashboard updates in
