Janky scrolling, things flying around, random animations that don't finish before you scroll past them.
The left / right alternate scroll is .... unsettling.
Kind of glad to see it's just another bad design decision and nothing else.
> Our old logo was a blue box that implied, “Dropbox is a great place to store stuff.” The new one is cleaner and simpler. And we’ve evolved it from a literal box, to a collection of surfaces to show that Dropbox is an open platform, and a place for creation.
Maybe this is just an intermediate step in an attempt to preserve some brand continuity, and something more radically different is coming later, but the new logo sure looks a lot like a blue box to me. I literally didn't realize the logo next to this text was the new logo, I kept scrolling down looking for something that wasn't clearly a box.
I actually agree that the new logo is an improvement -- it really is "cleaner and simpler" -- but I think it is ridiculous to look at that new logo as anything more than (or other than) a stylized box.
This seems like a tear in the opposite direction and I'm not sure which target user/market it was designed to appeal to. Maybe it's just a refresh to try and stay top-of-mind in the face of competition from Google, Microsoft, and Box.
Oh no. Oh... no. follow link to dropbox.com Ugh. What happened?
I'm now under the impression Dropbox will go out of business and I need to explore alternatives.
Edit: I think I identified what makes me intensely dislike it. The color scheme and design screams "This is no longer for you, it's for hipsters."

I always perceive words like "excited" in PR statements as corporate narcissism. This kind of language shows that they have become too self-absorbed, the new unfitting design is just another symptom of it.
Seriously, who comes up with this stuff? It feels like a bad joke.
They nailed it on grotesk
double scroll bars? I can't scroll by clicking? all kinds of colors that don't work, i'm so confused right now i'll just pretend it didnt exist..
I really don't understand what this is all about.
The colors and typography are still hideous, though.
The left one doesn't scroll, the right one reveals some weird script tag.
I'm not a huge fan of Google Drive's recent redesign either. I like box.com but haven't moved anything yet.
I feel like this is a huge step backwards and if the seamless experience of using dropbox worsens i will consider switching. But then again i am not a paying customer.
