Slack’s design is not secret sauce(

    The author repeatedly makes the point that design is just the look

    I'm longer certain we're reading the same post. Yes, he mentions visual design. But he also mentions that it's fun to use. Regardless, his definition of design is a minute aspect of the post as it's focused on factors that most certainly are not design - timing, pr, team-building, etc.

    But in regards to the post you've referenced, I'm certain that author would argue that Slack does not value design in the slightest because there are no gradients in the UI.
