“Flat” software interface design considered harmful

“No argument here: Jony Ive has produced some of the best industrial design in the history of consumer products. He’s done it by cutting out all the extraneous parts. By eliminating edges, by smoothing and streamlining.

But what works beautifully for hardware does not work for software.”

I have felt too that the “flat” design promoted recently by many software interaction designers hurts usability. It looks like I’m not the only one that dislikes this trend. Not being the only one feels great!
