WHAT IF PRODUCT HUNT WAS A CALENDAR?
Robinhood, Front, Honey, and over 145,000 other products have started on Product Hunt since its founding. Similar to Reddit, posts are upvoted by the community to give daily🥇 weekly🏅 and monthly 🏆winners. Unfortunately, due to the sheer volume of products launched each day there wasn’t an easy and fast way to catch up or quickly look back to find winners from previous months.
I challenged myself to design and build an online calendar bestofproducthunt.com to solve this problem and launched it back on Product Hunt. #meta 🤓

The whole side project took about a month with no coding using Figma and Webflow. I learned how to build a custom CMS to import the CSV data from PH’s API, layout with CSS grid, how to create a tabbed menu, and a whole host of subtle UI animations and page transition techniques using Webflow’s Interactions feature.
