Comment (by fcoveram):

 Hi all! I have been designing the images to show the features and the page
 based on this document (content up to April 28th, 11:30 GTM-4) and this
 guide (https://make.wordpress.org/design/handbook/workflows/wordpress-
 core-about-page/) shared by @estelaris. Here you can see a prototype
 version (https://www.figma.com/proto/ZizhN0ztdgGYYuatX2w85s/About-Page-6.0
 zoom&starting-point-node-id=740%3A12400), and below the mockup and some
 comments related to the whole design.

 All images are static images except the one in “Switch up styles!” where I
 tried a GIF displaying the style variations of the Twenty Twenty Two
 theme. Open the prototype to see it live.

 == Content order

 The content document has the “More design tools” section between the
 Integrated patterns and the List view descriptions. I am not aware of why
 this decision, but once the descriptions are reinforced with images, it
 sounds more logical moving this section to the end of the feature
 descriptions. Let me know what you think of this shift.

 == Content length

 There are two features with bullet content, “Let your writing flow” and
 “Different templates for different things”. At first glance, it looks
 clear to describe the characteristics per point, but once on the page, it
 is difficult to handle it since the text lengths tend to vary and the
 sentences look irregular.

 In the case of “Let your writing flow,” I tried different layouts, and a
 section made of two columns is the cleanest way to balance the empty space
 between the paragraph, image, and bullets. Nonetheless, I would prefer to
 describe the feature in multiple paragraphs since the page follows a
 section-per-feature logic.

 For the “Different templates for different things” section, I added one
 thumbnail image per point showing the tool, but you can notice that the
 third one does not have the full text by the text length reason mentioned

 I hope you like this proposal. Please let me know your thoughts
