Gutenberg Phase 2 Friday Design Update #8

March is here! There’s a lot of feedback needed to push things along. Here’s what’s happening in Gutenberg.

Navigation block

@tinkerbelly posted a Navigation block proposal. This direction is both intuitive while using smart defaults, and advanced enough to provide for those that require more control.

The #research slack channel has some discussions going on for testing this prototype to help ensure it’s on the right track.

Tightening up

Block Management

Yep, you read that right! Gutenberg is exploring some block management patterns currently. There’s a need for feedback here before development starts.


Gutenberg has been making lots of progress on accessibility thanks to cross-team collaboration. Not only are Gutenberg contributors learning more about this, but accessibility is being included earlier in the process.

Here’s an example of the progress being made.

Thanks for reading, staying informed, and contributing anywhere you can!
