I disagree, there's clear hierarchy. It's a lot more quieter than the previous site but I wouldn't say it lacked identity or hierarchy.
When I first saw the redesign I really didn't like it.
However, having lived with it for a while I think 90% of my issues came from the way it was initially presented.
While not a massive fan still, it's growing on me.
When the site loaded my immediate reaction was that it doesn't feel like a designers site - a little too much vanity for me. It also felt like it was one of those designers who show you no design work.
However, once I got past that, I became impressed.
Well thought out case studies oozing personality.
Would have liked a little less vanity and a little more work though ;-)
It annoys me when one brand attacks another, especially when it's underperforming in comparison.
Should designers question?
Savee.it is pretty good.
You can import from Pinterest and supports drag and drop uploads.
It’s fairly new and lacks a big community but it shows promise.
Your first comment sums up my entire point. You build the brand out from the logo. Are you telling me that this website feels like it's born from this logo?
There have been comments on this thread comparing the logo to Saul Bass.
Such aesthetic hasn't been followed through.
You're second point contradicts the your first. You build a brand out from a logo.
If, in this instance, we say the website is a article of branding - surely it should feel like it's built from the logo.
Would you build a house with different windows? You wouldn't. You'd look for some sort of synergy. The website and logo do not do this.
Good elaborating Scott.
Those were my exact thoughts.
Apologise Jeremy for my unconstructive criticism.
Your logo doesn't match the aesthetic of your site.
The animations are nice and they layout works but the logo just jars with it all.
I like it. The tone feels very precise and technical. It has echoes of https://ia.net.
