Why I’m a Designer Part 1.5: Design Emergencies | alternatekev

Users hate the new placement of the button for the feature we shipped last week. No one can figure out where to find it and they’re throwing bricks through our windows.

Desktop Software Designer: “We can hide under our desks until the next release literally ships to physical stores 12 months from now. People will have to drive a car to buy it.”

Web Designer: “I just moved it back. Let’s figure out a way not to have that happen again. But if it does, we can still just move it back.”

It looks like Press this is getting some… well… press

The platform really doesn’t matter much anymore: smartphones are marvels of modern science that democratize technology in an unprecedented way. That’s the one thing to take away from this switch, really.

For that reason I find it very hard, perhaps even petty, to criticise one platform over the other.
