The new logo has became almost abstract and verging on becoming a graphic "V", the headline font looks 60's - not very progressive, or in anyway "creative".
You can probably tell I'm not a fan of the identity. Bung a load of bright, modern colour combo's together, add some colourful modern imagery - job done. Meh.
Why the fuck there's not more [competent] competition in this space, I don't understand.
Shit like this is the new PR
As far as I can tell, The Outline does this style far better and actually has it across their property
That logo sucks and it honestly feels awkward to look at, like an optical illusion.
I'm taking a knee on this one...
They are trying to appeal to the creative industry. they want to be the go-to service for us knobs. I guess this is their interpretation of what appeals to us 'designer-types'
That said, they were smart about not injecting this cacophony into the navigation and UI.

1. The core service is (nearly) flawless.
2. Paper, although young is an excellent communication tool that eliminates the "bulk" of a lot of its (relatively) archaic competitors.
I use it for all current and new clients to gather assets, etc. (most of my business is small to mid-size, so it's perfect).
3. The updated brand is nice, BUT with the imagery, 259 font variations, etc. it comes off feeling a bit immature in my opinion.
I always liked the simplicity of their brand.
If you are on the "downloading" side of the transaction for big files, Dropbox forces you to sign up and to pay them money to download.
Even if the "uploading/ hosting" site is a paying subscriber.
Which offer the options of free and paid subscription for the party "uploading/ hosting files", without affecting the "downloading" party in any way.
- +1 this bullshit. Will not use Dropbox because of it.monNom
- totally agree... just sucks some of the agencies and a 'big' client I work w/all stuff DB w/files... I have to maintain a pro account monthly :/PonyBoy
- i did not know this. Before I subscribed I didn't remember ever having an issue downloaded DB filesGnash
awful font choice
I hope this isn't where design trends are moving. The new DB design is painful to look at and it's really going to suck if this becomes the prevailing aesthetic.
So we're finally ditching the 80's shit and moving on to the 90's?
This is fucking garbage btw... shame on them for being duped into something that went out of style 20+ years ago for good reason... and why don't you guize just fucking use Impact? Your font choice is PAINFUL. :( Big step backward in design... nothing new to see here... nothing clever or enticing... and my god... did you hire a teenager to do that opening art / photography? Hideous. :/
it's a service

Generally I don’t like slating work; I wasn’t in the room when they were getting briefed and receiving feedback at the WIP meetings. I’ve been on plenty of jobs (especially branding ones) where the work has gotten away from us as the client has made demands rather than taking advice.
BUT, that fucking sucks. There’s practically nothing I like here. The logo. The colours. The type... ugh, that fucking type; it just doesn’t work. Scrolling down the page feels like my system is missing the right fonts. The whole thing feels under cooked, even the copy that is supposed to rationalise everything is shit.
I’d love to know if it is bang on brief? Are the creative team happy with this? Is this what the client demanded?
Welcome to zombocom.
I don't mind it. I find it confusing considering their pivot to selling to the enterprise (where the money is at).
