    We can't keep saying "Not all men"

    By doing that we just keep defending men.

    Not sure how Dropbox is better priced since I can get 2TB for $9.99 in iCloud. Dropbox literally charging twice for the price and that's just with their old plan.

    But I agree with all your other points. Dropbox's vision is changing/getting broader. That is a bigger change compared to the brand change that we see.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Just allow yourself to be acquired by someone.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it culture don't work in Products, unfortunately. If Instagram, Facebook Messenger, Snapchat, Google Maps remained the same as 5 years back, they would have either get shut down or get replaced by something superior.

    Dropbox has a bigger problem. Apple, Google, Box, Microsoft are trying to squeeze their business share through their own cloud storage services, some of them are prebaked into the ecosystem and relatively cheaper. They will essentially get wiped out of their core product in few years because their product is well just "sync my goddamn files" and anyone could do that in 2017

    This rebranding is essentially intended to get next million users who would see the product differently. These users will see it as a product they can't live without every day and they will remember using it to get things done. While the rebranding itself is a separate topic, I just want to highlight why it's important for them today than tomorrow when they are close to being eliminated from the market they started with.

    But isn’t that what they are trying to fix?

    For a satirical writer, you take things way too seriously ;)

    Interesting process Anny & Sonja!


    Why did you guys go with Latin Characters? Especially since your next millions of users will come from the Asian market, do you feel you could have combined localisation with your branding to give a bit more push?

    In the past, I used to stare at this Scott-Jony

    1) Is survey is a good way to measure this? 2) Is skeleton loader, designed to make perceived loading lesser or to make the user feel less abrupt when the content loads. In other words, Does the intention of the loader is to make the user expect what kind of content can come, rather than network failing or web page not loading?

    Please, showcase your product better. Fix your website

    The world doesn't need scroll jacking anymore. My browser was so sluggish that I just wanted to close the tab and immediately give this feedback.

    I was quite impressed with the video for the Studio. More than that product, I was genuinely interested in the ecosystem you guys have made. But the website just turned all my interest off immediately. It just felt like a Dribbble trend painstakingly engineered to give your visitors a bad experience.

    More than that, I was genuinely feeling lost. What is part of screenshot/what is part of a website, what are the call to actions and what are those numbers that come in the middle and why are they needed?

    I don't want to give your new competitor(Sketch) as an example for how to showcase your product, but I couldn't resist. Looking at their (new) site, I feel I could trust them because somehow the site comes off as transparent and open. Same way how I felt about the product 3 years ago. It's so simple that the design itself doesn't ask for too much attention compared to the product.

    I know there are designers/product people/engineers who put heart and soul into this site and product and want to see the best launch, and my only feedback here is that there is still some more time to make the best out of this launch!
