I’ve always been kind of confused by the Me.dium (me.dium.com) UI. It is not very intuitional to me, it’s easy to read the text but the lack of anti-aliasing makes it look kind of dull too. It took me almost two weeks of usage to find out that the stuff in the bottom are all tabs, so you can select different ones!
Maybe I’m being overly critical here, Me.dium is an awesome application that will go far. I just hope they can put some more time into making it logical (for first-time users).
I’ve also thought about the simplicity of the medium “world”. The background is genious, but boring, as is the small boxes floating around on it. Again, it’s all needed to be extremely clear just because everything is so small, but cmon. I did a background for the Me.dium sphere to show how it would’ve looked if I designed the thing, it should be to the right of this blog post. Does anyone like it?
