Your Monthly Dose of Founder Advice, Design Inspiration & Cool Finds
Welcome to the roundup
👋 Welcome to the roundup! This is a new monthly post where I’ll be discovering and curating founder advice, design Inspiration and cool finds, to make you better at your job and business.
Founder advice 📚
Golden advice from Chris Frantz here on successful product hunt launches
He breaks down steps you should take to give you the best chance for a solid launch.
This amazing tweet from on a simple truth.
This hits home for me, because I genuinely believe it’s the reason for most purchases. Most B2B tools help businesses earn more money, and eventalks about how he helps people become hero’s at their job. I don’t have any experience in the second point…
Why perseverance is an underrated factor of success.
“Half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is perseverance“ - Steve Jobs
I’m slowly realising how important this is. Most of us give up before we see success, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not just around the corner.
Design Inspiration ✨
This FIRE landing page transition by Nick Sanchez using Framer. Beautiful.
This apps by Apple page. A really nice and unique execution of graphics and product details. Super simple, but it’s gorgeous.
Glideapps.com’s landing page. This may have been updated some time ago, but I’ve only just noticed and thought it deserved a feature. Simple and clean
Cool finds ⚡️
This unbelievable AI language translation demo which alters your lips, accent and language 🤯
This demo from Matter on their latest update, allowing you to highlight podcasts. This is something I’m in dire need of. I’m always manually writing notes down whilst listening!
A cool prototype built in SwiftUI from Robera Geleta on integrating AI in mail.
👋 Alright, that’s my top picks for September
