Graphics, User Interfaces Tobias Bjerrome Ahlin, an interface designer at Spotify, is a big believer in skeuomorphism. Whereas Apple is a strong advocate of this design concept, Microsoft is clearly moving in the exact opposite direction, while Android is in the process of moving away from skeuomorphism entirely, to a more digital experience. As a passionate hater of skeuomorphism in UIs, I found Ahlin's examples to be a bit weak.

Though "make things work the way our MINDS work" is a slightly double-edged argument - in some ways, partly, it can also go in favour of the discussed approach.

After all, our minds evolved, over a looong time of half+ billion years, to the way physical words works.
