There's a tangible backlash against Skeuomorphism in UI design. What are your thoughts?
I guess in someway I've been part of this backlash against the Skeu, as I've pointed fingers several times on Twitter.
Why? It just isn't to my taste. Just as Justin Bieber isn't my taste in music. It doesn't make me wrong, it doesn't make me right. It's all personal taste.
Regarding the wider backlash, I think it's hit a point when someone can crank out a design in Photoshop with a thousand layers and it gets picked out as "good design", whilst something simpler often gets overlooked. These examples of "good design" get emulated to death throughout the design community, which means they get stale quickly.
Who knows - this backlash may lead to an uprising of "simple" design, which may in turn lead to a backlash of that....
