I don't have much advice other than don't hire people without industry experience - something I learned in the .com boom days.

Academia doesn't teach proper software development, and because academia is sort of antithetical in nature to putting practice over theory it probably never will.

People get lost in the Right Way(TM) to design things that often isn't the right way at all when the real world collides with it, but they get stuck in this idea of "it must fit the model" and i've found that the higher the degree in Compsci the more likely this sort of thing comes from them.

I'm sorry to say but uni as much as it educates, puts blinders on people, and those blinders only get undone through actual experience.

If you want to save this hire, be patient with them, correct them, and hope to hell they are responsive to criticism and can update their work accordingly.

Otherwise, it's time to look for a different UI person. Just my $0.02
Real programmers use butterflies
