Some Issues With Whitehouse.gov

Thumbnail - Donald Trump - Make America Great AgainSome people just hate Trump. Maybe it’s his policies. Maybe they don’t like his attitude. Maybe they want to be the one to take him down, as it can boost their career. Me, I don’t hate him. I actually like him.

Emoji Flags from English speaking countriesOne of the nice things about Tumult Hype is the ability to customize my work. Instead of waiting for Hype 4.0, or whatever the next major version is called, I can simply create my own features. As an example, what if Hype had built-in Multilingual support? Instead of creating multiple scenes or multiple projects, wouldn’t it be nice to have just one layout? Well, you can. That’s what this week’s template is all about.
