Automattic’s 2016 Year in Review

a8c Automattic people


Automattic is the company that builds WordPress.com. We are a fully distributed company with employees all over the globe.

At the end of 2016, a few of us got together to build a Year-in-Review of the company’s accomplishments. The team included @marinapape, @keoshi, @cristelrossi, @evilluendas, and myself as the lead designer.

We wanted an interactive data visualization that would both inspire other companies and lead traffic to our “work with us” page. We were successful on both accounts generating thousands of page view within a week’s time and encouraging other companies to try remote work.
