Design Is How It Works, Edition Number 3911

Matt Gemmell, on the potential for iOS 7’s new user interface direction under Jony Ive:

The reality is that skeuomorphism enshrines and validates a failure of vision, and even worse, a failure to capitalise on the medium. That’s a betrayal of a designer’s implicit duty of trust to make something that is the best, and to treat all other goals as secondary. I think that’s a responsibility that Ive feels very strongly. I doubt that anyone has ever had to remind him of it.

Some of the best analysis of user interface design. From a developer, no less.
