…that old school logo … alas, poor logo. I have to admit, I had not seen the mobile mark at the time I wrote about the new “monogram.” The mobile version is okay. It’s a standout in the world of single letter mobile app logos, I guess. I’m not too fond of that beige, but it’s a heck of a lot better than the old multiplane green monst…
hey Clay! how quickly things change :-) Yesterday we were talking about the new Monogram, and now even that is gone, all that is left is the ‘Medium’ word floating at the top of every page, CENTERED! Doesn’t that feel almost like a slight, since Medium authors cannot center their own titles?!
By the way, the beige border around the mobile logo, as I show it in my article, is my own background, the mobile logo itself is just white, it will bleed or blend into light colored backgrounds. Itself not super smart, and contradicts the monogram-on-black-square design.
PS: the black monogram remains in one place: while writing stories or responses such as I’m doing now.
Oh well, not the end of the world, but the more I think about this, seems they rushed the changes without proper consideration of unintended consequences.
