Reviews

  • Matt McCallumFounder, Lucid (coming soon)
    Pros: 

    It's great to see that a company like Atlassian are starting to see the importance of design and making steps in the right direction.

    Cons: 

    It would have been nice to see more reference to 'jobs to be done' rather than personas, which feel a bit stuffy.

    It's fair to say that a lot of designers have a dislike (or probably a fear!) of going anywhere near tools like Jira or Confluence - while everyone else in a product team will be using them.

    But as an organisation it's clear that Atlassian have recognised this, and are making steps in the right direction to create better designed products. Their software is super complex so it will be a difficult task to simplify and redesign the UI across the board, but when they get there I think they might just earn some credibility with designers along the way.

    Matt McCallum has used this product for one week.

    Pros: 

    Well thought out, expansive, flexible and powerful. And best of all, finally LOOKS wonderful

    Cons: 

    Can be overly complex, but that's their constant challenge

    Looking forward to this launch to unifying the brand and products more, and seeing some great UX/UI improvements to JIRA especially! (desktop site)

If there's one thing I associate Atlassian / Jira with, it's definitely straightforward and beautiful experiences...

@ubbedall Same! I'm not sure what this hunt actually is... as far as I can tell it's (basically) new brand guidelines for Atlassian, so that they can fix their god-awful interfaces? Any insight @megaroeny?

@ubbedall @rossdcurrie it's something I'm sure they'll be using to start improving their UI/UX over time. There's a lot... And no not really other insight. Just a user and a big fan of design systems. I'm making one myself at work. But I'm sure they'll be updating JIRA desktop site in the near future too. The mobile app is beautiful! The Confluence site looks awesome now as well.

I esp love designer's sense of humor "Atlassian open company? Sounds bullshit!"
Ralph Ward@ralphmartynward · Affiliate marketing manager
@kuolldev to me it reads "open company, no bullshit"

@kuolldev @ralphmartynward This is right. "Open company, no bullshit" is one of our values https://www.atlassian.com/compan...

I'm looking forward to a deep redesign of JIRA. It's the tool I use the most and now it's very cumbersome. As a customer I'm very happy of the path they are taking.

Would be really thankful if Jira gets a complete redesign. Every time I look at it, I have to learn the UI from the start :(
