Why is JotForm acquiring Noupe?
The reasoning was simple. As a company, JotForm loves design. Its users include designers and design aficionados, and JotForm’s team is full of talented developers and designers who regularly read Noupe. But what really drove this acquisition is that JotForm loves writing about design. The JotForm Blog is also a resource for thousands of designers and developers looking for tips and trade secrets, just like Noupe. Now that Noupe is part of the JotForm family, it’ll get exposure to even more readers than ever before. JotForm has nearly 4 million users worldwide. It’s a brand that has helped countless companies create better designs -- something that made them a perfect fit to carry the Noupe torch.
What to Expect
As a devoted Noupe reader, you won’t miss a thing. JotForm’s team of writers will continue to write thoughtful, researched articles on creating great design. The major difference is that you’ll have exposure to even more articles and resources. For a sampling of what JotForm writes about, check out popular recent articles, Why we decided to drop LESS for SCSS, and How to “Remote User Test”.The former Noupe team will now focus on other projects, such as the German design magazine Dr. Web, which has been the initial spark setting fire to Smashing Magazine and Noupe, both of which wouldn’t even exist without the good ole Doctor. Wave Goodbye, say Hello!
