We also pay a lot of attention to sustainabilitye.g. in the form of green electricity, compensation payments for our CO2 emissions, environmentally friendly giveaways, recyclable materials and the avoidance of waste.

Gutenberg-create blocks without JS
Birgit Pauli-Haack from Gutenberg Times tests three Plugins, with which you can create your own Gutenberg block for your individual needs without JavaScript. As a test case, she creates a "team block" with each of the Plugins , which displays photos and contact details of people and can thus be used for a company page, for example. The conclusion of her test, you can read here.

Colors from real life
Coming up with beautiful color palettes is not that easy. A British agency had a creative idea for this: The project Found Color publishes photos whose motif shows an interesting color combination - including the corresponding color codes. The result is an archive of great color combinationswhich were neither generated by algorithms nor based on classical rules of color theory.
