Welcome to Briefbox 4.0, it’s here, ready to roll and we think you’re gonna love it..
This launch is our biggest update ever since we started back in 2014 and we still can’t quite believe the sheer amount of improvements we’ve actually made happen. We’ve spent a solid 10 months working away in the background and essentially, we have completely rebuilt every single aspect of the Briefbox website.
Under the hood we’ve got a brand new submission engine, a streamlined code base and vast improvements to our database management which means an all round better user experience. On the front end we’ve added new features.. a whooooole bunch of new features that will turn Briefbox into the thriving, engaged community it’s always dreamed of becoming!
Feature wise.. here’s a few of the improvements you can now enjoy

Thanks to our whole community!
When I started Briefbox a few years back, the dream was to turn it into a thriving community of designers all actively engaging with each other, alongside getting tips and feedback from professionals on their design submissions.
Little did I know how much of a mammoth journey, myself (and the rest of the awesome Briefbox team) were about to embark on. 3 years later, 2 large updates and 1 complete website rebuild and we’re here.
We wouldn’t still be here if it wasn’t for you guys. We’re really looking forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback on the new and improved Briefbox and if you have any questions at all feel free to comment below or get in touch with us over here
