Sometimes I do look at our industry and ask myself: WTF? A design is not only about the looks but also about the function. That’s what Steve Jobs said, and it is true. Unfortunately, there are too many designers out there who think their task is to reinvent everything. Not even the wheel is secure from these radicals. The outcome is products such as the Apple Pencil’s loading technology or the new Apple Mouse’s loading port underneath the device. Our designer here has also felt the need to redefine the user experience of an everyday item. See what I mean?
By the way, we have more cartoons for you here.
