Launched UX/UI redesign

Karen @keyserfaty

It never feels like its the right time to rewrite a whole app but since I went through a couple of pivots the codebase and the design were all over the place.
I decided to invest a week of dev time rebuilding the frontend from scratch and I think it paid off. I'm using React/Apollo and Evergreen for my components, which made it much faster to do everything and the app has a corporate look I like.
The app is much faster now and loading states/errors are well handled so it gives feedback to the user, which it didn't do before.

Would really appreciate comments from the community :)

App: http://app.palabra.io/ (👈 the one I rewrote)

    This looks super clean, very Notion-esque ! A couple of things that might be worth looking at:

    • The icons above each of the three horizontal points (List of Users, Connect Data Source, Compose Emails) are very low contrast to the background and not very big. The wording of these points is also inconsistent: noun, action, action.
    • The blanking out of e-mail addresses on the "List of Users" looks messy (this is a very personal opinion) - could you provide a mockup with very obviously fake addresses?
    • The highlight of "[email protected]" had me thinking I had somehow highlighted the text
    • Your copyright notice in the footer is still 2019
    • The contrast on "Getting Started is Easy" is pretty low - with white on cream in some places

      Hi! Thanks for your feedback. Just updated the post to make it more clear that the rewrote was of the app, not the landing page. But thank you very much anyway for your feedback! This is the link of the app in case you want to give it look: http://app.palabra.io/

        Glad it was useful though
