Building Talium: the fastest way to publish a webpage

In 2020, I founded a Mozilla-backed startup called Talium. Talium is a text editor meets webpage builder (think Notion mixed with Webflow). Try it out here.

I wanted to enable users to use the rich text editing (like Google Docs) and publish their documents into sleek, shareable webpages (like Medium or Notion—but with more design flexibility).

Creating a solid UX flow was extremely important to me. Talium needed to be the fastest way to publish a page, from start to finish.

I did in-person and remote user testing, used Google Analytics to track events and user flows, and gathered feedback through email, Twitter DM, text... any channel you can imagine.
