The primary purpose of a design is to make users operate things without a hassle and make the interface look eye friendly.
I agree. Check the quote on my signature 🤷🏻♂️
I am an UI/UX designer and often I get requests like: “make it like Apples website” or “make it like Netflix website” or “ohhh I want that effect from this bank hotsite for my ecommerce education website” 🙄 without even thinking about usability in first place for their users.
I always try to get it minimalist and straight to the point first, building its functions. Function should come first before Form, always. Form is a consequence of how you build them. But no, clients want the form first, a beautiful design without any function thar could propose their services to their clients. Fail. Fail. Fail… and I always have to explain it to them.
Apple post-Jobs has this problem too. I personally think that Jony Ive is an idiot. Jobs had him under control, but Ive without Jobs is a complete mess, he f* it up with some iOS changes when they fired Forstall after the Maps fiasco (not that I did like the Skeuomorphic design, I hated it actually). iOS 7 was horrible, but improved dramatically over the years.
Not to mention some design choices he made, like the cheese crater mac pro and the trash can mac. He had the chance to make a better version of the G4 Cube this time and ruined it up.
I like the changes in Big Sur, but Safari 15 new tabs is another show of inconsistency post-Jobs. Finder tabs and Safari tabs aren’t even the same. Finder will probably get a makeup after Monterey release.
At least, Apple is better at trying to make it generally consistent and well documented on their website than Microsoft does.
