    Honestly, it feels a lot like Kudos from Svbtle.

    The metric itself feels muddled. I'm certain this is a byproduct Medium scrambling for metrics to justify their valuation.

    It's a shame. Back in 2015 it felt like Medium had an incredibly strong product vision—build the best experience for reading and writing on the web. Had they not raised that much money, I think the product would have been better off.

    Love the site, but took a ridiculous amount of time to load.

    I would love to hear other suggestions, but in my opinion nothing really comes close. Playfair Display is far too stylized.

    Damn, I love Tiempos so much. Too bad the license is so expensive.

    I'm a fan of the new illustrations. Reminds me a bit of Oscar's style. https://www.hioscar.com

    The name certainly doesn't fit does it?

    With that said, I think it's a very cool-looking product. Jury is still out on sound quality.

    Since this is a blog post, it shouldn't have the Site Design tag. Discussion would be more fitting.

    Those gradients are wild. Does anyone have insight into how those are made?

    Odd, I was certainly expecting this to redirect to PayPal.

    That is unnecessarily harsh.

    Everyone has to start somewhere. Sometimes people just want to work on a weekend design project.

    I don't see an issue as long as they are not claiming that it was commissioned by said company.

    Joel, love the writing behind the features you've worked on. The detailed breakdowns are fantastic and help show why you made decisions.

    Good luck with the new gig!
