 Hey all, sharing a quick update based on some of the above design

 **NOTE: The page content is still being finalized so please reference the
 Google doc] for content/copy concerns!

 > looks like the 5.9 file in Figma is just a copy of the 5.8 file. Can you
 update that with the correct file when you have some time in the next few

 Good catch, thanks @melchoyce! I’ve deleted that placeholder file. Here’s
 the link to the correct Figma — we’re now on version i3:

 > I wouldn't think to hover over that thumbnail — maybe instead of the
 hover effect, we could use a play icon in the bottom right corner?

 Made this change in the Figma :)

 > I think the spacing in figma is off from the existing grid in the page.
 The "wide/narrow" column widths should be 666px/333px (with padding,
 that's 269px for copy), which seems pretty cramped.

 Sorry about this, @ryelle! I think we should stick with the wide/narrow
 approach but I missed an important note in
 the-about-page/#images the specs] that images can either be edge-to-edge
 or have a 32px padding on all four sides.

 If we use the images with padding, it should give us enough space and feel
 less cramped. (Personally, I think it looks better when the top edge of
 the image has zero padding so the images align nicely with the title but
 this is not a big deal either way.)

 I’ve updated [https://www.figma.com/file/kPC54qq59R1c5d2nvEnbKj/About-
 Page-5.9?node-id=265%3A19044 the Figma] (and the images) to match the
 correct spacing — this should match the 5.8 version of the About page
 that’s currently live.

 >I have one small suggestion for the other screens (contributors, four
 freedoms, privacy): make the big heading a bit smaller.

 Thanks @audrasjb, I've made this change in the Figma (reduced the size
 from 32pt to 26pt). CC @ryelle — I think we may be able to make ''all''
 the subheads 26pt, with section headings being a little bigger (32pt).

 Thanks all, we should have a version with final content coming soon!
 Excited to review the latest PR that @ryelle shared above but didn't want
 to delay feedback in the meantime :)
