    Not a huge fan of the profile header. The the grid feels lost and the typography blurs together from lack of contrast.

      How does the typography blur together form lack of contrast?

        I think it's because there's little difference in the weights, colors, and size. And everything's all grouped together so there's less hierarchy.

        I was little skeptical at first of the criticism of the type but once I opened a tab to an actual profile, I could see it.

      My principle on type contrast is:

      • high contrast for human-created text

      • lower contrast for interface-created text

      They respect this here but I think the lower contrast is too low, still.

      I definitely prefer the old top with lots of photos. It quickly gave the whole page much more personality.
