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? 😔
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.

That logo is an instant OCD trigger 😨

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!
