The feedback that we’ve gotten from customers for all of the features Headway’s helped build has been that they’re all a step above any other feature that we’d built up to that point, from a user interface and frontend perspective. They’re more aesthetically-pleasing, easier to use, and more thought-out.

For our design team, Headway’s biggest area of impact was helping with the design system and the transition to Figma. It’s increased the foundational elements and lets us operate at 5-10x the velocity. That was huge.
