Elliot Jay Stocks na-etinye mkpu agha maka ndị na-emepụta… hapụ anya Web 2.0 ma lụọ ndị ahịa gị ọgụ maka ya.
MARA: Na na na Elliot's site, imewe bụ nnọọ pụtara.
Ekwetaghị m na Elliot na a ga-ebibi ya. Na-arụ ọrụ n'ọma ahịa, ị matara na e nwere echiche ehi iji chepụta. Likelọ ọrụ dị ka Apple have some deep pockets and have an expectation of design genius associated with their brand. The consumer expects that the designs associated with Apple's products, packaging and marketing will break new ground. (Except for the black background ads with the bright light on one side of the spokesperson… I think it looks ridiculous).
The rest of the companies are best suited to follow the lead. Just as fashion follows trends, so does design. The ‘herd' appreciates visual aesthetics that provides indication that it's related to a specific trend or technology. When I come across a new application like Mixx or Ugochukwu, before I ever dig into the application, I'm struck with the visual cue that this is an application built on the newest technology.
Ndi mmadu na ihe okike di nkpa, ma mgbe onye obula na-eyi akwa jeans buut ma i gosiputa n’ime ala, ndi mmadu ghaju aju aju. Ihe ziri ezi ma ọ bụ ihe ọjọọ, nke a bụ omume mmadụ. N'ụbọchị a ebe ndị na-azụ ahịa na-agbagharị ngwa ngwa Myspace na Facebook, ma ọ bụ Twitter na Tumblr, it's important that your design emulates that you have adopted the latest fashion na weebụ.
I respect Elliot's opinion as a talented artist and unique designer, but I'd recommend companies don't scrap Web 2.0 design just yet. Even Elliot admits that there are good reasons to follow the herd. Elliot and I do agree on the real challenge: How to work within the boundaries of Web 2.0 aesthetics and still come off as being original. And if you're looking for what elements are key, Elliot's put together a great presentation with all the aesthetics associated with Web 2.0 design!
