Not totally into the brand new logo, but most of all I'm concerned about some typographic choices :\ Where is the centered text? Why they removed an heading style? πŸ˜”

I don;t like the logo. Where is the original dark, bold, prominent M . Too bad. Hope it will not go down like blogger

@dontpanic_cg @pieroborgo George, are you saying that because you personally don't like the logo they now have a chance to become as unpopular as Blogger? Can't say that is a smart statement...

@briansventures @pieroborgo as a designer I inevitably tend to watch at logos and typography. I don't agree about some choices they made but I still love to write and read on Medium.

I really like Medium but I can't get behind this new logo. From reading the post about its development, it's clear they put a lot of work into it so I don't want to make it look like I'm slamming the designer; I'm not. I just don't see how this portrays the Medium brand better than the previous logo. The previous one looked like, from my perspective, a typed letter. That imagery fit what Medium was. This new logo, not so much.

@fbara Same impression here... I like the new logo, but I don't think it represents Medium so well as the old one used to...

@torbahax Nice! Also nice story on the design journey. Logo reminds me of a project I'm working on ;) https://twitter.com/awayin_to

The new logo makes medium appear like a new startup that is trying to be trendy. Not a well grounded company that was doing something different on the web!
