  • Posted to Dropbox Bizarre Empty State Illustration, in reply to Daniel De Laney , Oct 27, 2017

    Is this just a critique of personal taste? If this looked aesthetically different but was the exact same concept I don't think anyone here would be talking about it.

    Underneath the illustration it tells you exactly what is going on from a user perspective. So that's pretty clear.

    Are illustrations not added to give something personality? Well this one has personality, maybe not the one you want to see from Dropbox, but to me their brand from the beginning has been naive drawings to tell a simple story, so downplaying someones work as "monkey grade" because you don't like it is not only belittling but unnecessary.

    Our first iterations of the "MENU" button started with the criteria that it had to work well with a mobile experience of our website. This gave us the parameters that it had to have a bounding of a square or a circle. We felt that the pattern itself of an overflow menu on websites is so new that the standard of the hamburger menu should be explored and pushed, so in the end we designed 100 menu buttons and the office liked this one the best.
