We’ve been working for the last month on a redesign of the web and desktop apps of WorkFlowy. Our driving goals have been to get rid of unnecessary distractions, and take the overall feeling of WorkFlowy out of the 90’s. I’ve been using the new design daily for the past few weeks, and I’m delighted by it. It’s clean, fresh, functional. Maybe even a little bit beautiful.
We’ve tested the new design internally and with a small group of users, but we want to open the redesign up to feedback from the broader WorkFlowy community. If you’d like to try the new design, head over to the experimental features page (workflowy.com/features/toggle) and turn it on.
Try it, and send your reactions to firstname.lastname@example.org
This redesign was the primarily the work of Stefano Attardi and Michael Leggett. Stefano is the engineer/designer who joined WorkFlowy recently, and Michael is an amazing designer who has been helping out part time, but whom I haven’t mentioned publicly yet. Michael is a longtime WorkFlowy user with a lot of domain expertise in the productivity space. He led design on Gmail, co-invented Google Inbox and did a ton of other impressive things at Google, and we’re very lucky to have his input.
We hope you love the redesign as much as we do. We’re excited to to keep releasing product improvements and new features, and this redesign will serve as a strong base to build upon.
