Graphics, User Interfaces "We're able to produce absolutely stunning websites and mobile apps with great interaction design. Interfaces that are smooth and fun and let us understand information without even trying. But when it comes to email clients, we get a bit of a boring feeling, like using an old piece of software from 10 years ago. I think we can do better. So let's do that." Great ideas and beautiful design by Tobias van Schneider, but why he would forcefully shoehorn this clearly digital UI into Mac OS X is beyond me. It has no place there. This just screams Metro.

I personally think programs should be written to be as skinnable as possible so that designers and programmers don't have to work together at all. The programmers provide the functionality and infrastructure as modular (signal driven) as possible.* Designers just design the interface and glues everything together with signals however they like.


I disagree, I think both should have an appreciation of the other so they can communicate effectively when developing a product.
