  1. I really enjoyed this, thanks! I agree about the lack of navigation. I tried to click around Ello and discover the information architecture & nav that way, and I still couldn’t figure it out.

      Glad you enjoyed it! Yeah It was pretty awful, even for a small team. If it was 2 man team it would be passable as a beta.

    • Thanks for you comment Sarah!

      Did you like Ello overall? Or was the navigation problem big enough to drive you away?

      Me, I’m intrigued that someone is attempting something new in the space, and I’m curious to see where it goes from here…

  2. Neat. I really enjoyed this design review.
