I think this is very true, especially when I take a step back and look. I design eBooks, apps, digital content in a variety of forms. From a design standpoint, I want it to look good, play well so to speak and express the content or design well. So when I see something that doesn’t, it bugs me and I have to remember to step back some times.. it’s not that often of an occurrence, I usually rant about it.
I think the struggle that comes into play is the line between simple and too simple. Their seem to be degrees of simplicity and I think that in itself can cause issues. But simple seems to be the catch phrase and mentality right now and I think that’s great.
