I recently re-found userstyles.org and remembered the power of being a designer who can customize the design of the sites I use. I’ve had a too much fun over the last week or so writing up a user style for Asana that hides the stuff we don’t use (Conversations, Calendars) or that I think should have been hidden anyway (avatars per team), and downplays the less important stuff (the “mini-stories” audit trail per task, nearly everything in the site headers) while amping up the more important stuff (team names, task titles, etc.)
The result is a streamlined, easier to use and look at tool that still respects the enviable design Asana ships with.
In case you’d like to try it, just go here and click “Install with Stylish”. (Stylish is a simple Chrome/Opera extension that applies custom CSS per domain.)
And here’s a quick preview: http://cozy.es/8b6F9+
