Design Home puts out a monthly content update and it's the flagship release of our game. It drives millions in revenue each month, and I curate the narrative direction of each update. I also name 100+ items and write 180+ challenges monthly.
Below are nine content update storylines that I've written and led. Each story is tailored to that month's decor style.
