When you have too many asana tasks.
Gorgeous introduction film!
Funny: devs on HN aren't dropping Dribbble comments over this. The overall (early) response seems to be less than complimentary. Many seem to "want to like it" but ultimately it just doesn't do the job they are looking for (and essentially replicates Trello/Wunderlist, which do it better according to them).
Really interesting to see the difference in attitudes/remarks between there and here.
I for one was completely captivated by the video. That being said, I was so spellbound, I don't remember much about what it was trying to say for a minute and a half. The swirling and glowing spheres and gradient blends were so gorgeous, I really didn't care. Don't know if that's a good thing, but it was pretty.
Note: I was not familiar with the product before hopping over there, and didn't take away what it really was other than hand-wavy team collaboration software.
I love the new design. For many years I resisted using the product in various teams because of the design and interface.
The new design makes me want to use it.
We've been using Asana most of the year, and it was definitely lacking some... "pizzazz"... which the new version clearly gets right. A brighter, cleaner interface, fun interactions, and the optional unicorn make the entire platform sparkle quite a bit more.
The issue with these kinds of platforms has always been their function before form tendencies, and I'd say Asana is on the right track by iterating and always releasing new improvements. This was a big improvement IMO.
Nice, it doesn't look terrible anymore!
