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.

Skeuomorphism is one of my favorite words, but it is also one of my least-favorite things. The first really bad example of it I remember was Quicktime 4(?), with that damned wheel for volume.

Whoever thought that was a good idea should be dragged from his cubicle and beaten like a crappy office printer.
