    Decided to randomly share my first original concept for Medium.com that i designed while at Obvious Corp when we were just coming up with the idea. This concept had full customization, you could move images and type around anywhere on different layers to make your own unique layout.

    Definitely check out the full attachment the get the real feel!

    This is great - with the current trend of flat design it's nice to see some textures again!

    Wow! It's come a long way since this concept. Was this designed before the whole "let the writers write" idea came around?

    This looks like it would have been a lot of fun for designers to play around with, but I'm really happy with the direction that Medium has taken since this concept.

    @Quincy Kools Maybe you are right and this is the only concept (and there are parts i do not like from visual point), but i feel like this one brings more emotion / atmosphere into the reading (article) with the added things around.

    I don't like the idea of giving that importance to metadata and author instead of the content.

    Interesting. It has more of a scrapbook feel, and that's not a bad thing. Changes the whole experience. I'm not sure what I would prefer, this type of experience or the current state of Medium.

    I spy some @Trent Walton in that footer. Really like this concept. Curious why you didn't go with it.
