Almost every designer and blogger should know about Medium. It’s the most recent way to people to write and share their thoughts with a tremendous audience and inline comments.
Today the site launched a new brand loosely titled “Medium 2.0”. The team published a blog post with more details about the story and creative process.
This new 2.0 redesign comes with a refresh of the layout, both homepage and typical blog posts. This also includes redesigned assets for the logo and corporate branding.
But the changes don’t just stop at design. Medium now allows users to @mention others within their writing.
There’s also a brand new publishing API for developers who want to build on top of Medium’s architecture. This may not impact many writers but it’s sure to be a groundbreaking addition for curious developers.
Among many other features you’ll also notice that Medium has a brand new logo.
While some people are ranting & raving about the new design, others feel that Medium’s new logo is rather dreadful and a step back from their simpler design.
You can catch a glimpse of Medium’s design process from a small video they posted onto Vimeo.
