Steemit apparently hiring a dedicated UI-Team starting next week - Changing the face of Steemit.com?

Their entire career has been about building user interfaces, beautiful landing-pages and intuitive designs. According to @picokernel who joined @SteemSpeak early this morning, this is very good news for all of us. I agree, we need a facelift. They are not engineers, they are designers so they will be working only on front-ends or in other words, the stuff that meets your eye ;) and that is all I know about it.

That's cool. Steemit is very functional at the moment, but I know some people like eye candy. Ideally it should have a selection of themes to suit all tastes.

These are excellent news! Thanks for sharing the info with us @fyrstikken.
I believe steemit is unbeatable when it comes to technological leadership. So the focus was primarily lying there which absolutely makes sense being an application. Now, some improvements on the front-end, look and usability will surely provide the platform with a tremendous boost and bring it to the next level! These are exciting times, looking forward ;)
Steem on!

I would like a dark themed one like the Bitshares2-Light app. Will make photo's and video's come out better too. Although I like the current one too, change is exciting, looking forward to it!

Steem Speak Scoops! This is really awesome news!

Can't wait. IMO, 'looks' and 'ease of use' are what steemit is lacking the most at the moment.

Great news! Us Steemians already know how amazing the platform and community is, but reeling in new people will definitely be easier when everything looks all fancy and works intuitively :-)

gawd I hope not.
most of today's UI's look like they've been designed by hyperactive ferrets on pixie dust.

This is excellent news! Designing a GUI vs Programming are two completely different worlds. (that not always see eye to eye :) ) I wonder what changes they will propose!

They should do something about the annoying resteemed posts and put it in a separate tab!

You didn't even mention who the team is. However, IMO steem does need a facelift. What happened to the busy.org effort? There are many positive improvements over steem in that project. Could busy.org be the UI team you're referring to?

he has acted like a dedicated miserable troll for a long time now. Full of spite and hate and nothing more as far as I have seen.

No original content, No Steem Power or nothing positive to ever say! Such a waste as he is such critical philosophical thinker - but in all the WRONG ways! They wired him wrong at the factory I think. A darn waste too!!

Steem on big man!! Thanks for the UI update :)

It's all about taking care of the little things, that let the big things happen. This is one of those.
