GeneralBA's w/o Expertise Pin

So at my job, I have 2 business analysts (BA's) that write up all the stories for us to work on. One of them is a power user with industry knowledge and has worked in Support on the program for years, but no computer classes. The other has a degree in Computer Science, but no industry knowledge. The rules of my office are that the BA's call the shots for anything UI related.

I have more problems with the second BA (the one with the degree) designing bad UI's. So bad that my boss's boss told us to fix one part because it was so bad. This BA constantly ignores industry standard UI design principles and doesn't follow our program's look and feel when new parts are developed. They also always want to do things in a "new and better" way. This, I believe, breaks the UI contract we have developed over 20 years with our customers. It makes the program a hodge-podge of styles/designs, so the customer never knows how it's going to work from one area to the next.

As for the first BA, I get along great with. She gets it 100%.

Any advice?
