hey have plenty of good designers on staff. The problem is despite that, they keep having staff churning out nonsense like this and we're all worse off for it, because heaven forbid it ever get adopted by a significant number of people.
Just a thought about this view.

We are developers and have a very minority of a viewpoint. Their business, like any business, is to make money. They cater to the crowds of cretins that post their pet photos on any and all social media and who's idea of a computer (should they have one) is that it's a wide-screen cell phone.

Case in point, perhaps, is the successful (in $ terms) of the apples thousand dollar iPhart and those who stand on line to get the latest every year. And those who me-too! it, etc. etc. etc.

Accept it - we're all just outliers.
