Graphics, User Interfaces How would I describe today's GUIs? A mess. -- A mess that grew as new features were needed, with lack of proper design, with a desire to keep backward compatibility, and with tools from the past trying to achieve future needs. I propose a new design philosophy for GUIs. We'll call it Vermaden's GUI. Note: This is the latest entry in our 2008 article contest.

Amen.

Developing and creating GUI-design are two quite different tasks.

Sure, there might be people who are good at both, but you can't count on that most developers are good GUI-designers.

Userinterfaces is a art of it's own. Something people like Jacob Nielsen proves.
