Dat flaming blue button 😛
This article originally appeared in Wired. For many tech companies, design is no longer subjective.  Instead, it’s all about data. Analytics click and hum behind the scenes, measuring the effectiveness of even the tiniest design decisions.…

Hmmmmm.
There is an unfortunate climate of fear in the software community today. It is primarily in ephemeral video interviews and podcasts that we get any semblance of coherent criticism and even then it is reticent. Worse than the fact that this criticism is relegated to verbal discussions is that it is later renounced by the very same designers and developers when they are interviewed in the more permanent-seeming medium of the written word...

“In addition to the familiar condiment bottle, Ekuan also designed the Komachi bullet train in Tokyo, the Narita Express airport liner and Yamaha’s VMAS Motorcycle. Like the Kikkoman vessel — whose design was inspired by Ekuan’s mother who struggled to pour soy sauce out of a big container — Ekuan’s designs are driven by the “principle [of] democratization,” dedicated to making things accessible to the greater public.”
Kenji Ekuan, the industrial designer responsible for the ubiquitous Kikkoman soy sauce dispensers and Komachi bullet train, passed away this February 2015.

So much sigh. Why the marginalization, it does make me wonder.

“From my perspective, if UX suffers due to a lapse in the practice of information architecture, then one should improve IA. If performance is insufficient, then allocate more attention to that issue. It should not be necessary that in order to fix these issues protectionists should have to disparage visual UI design. Every practitioner who contributes to the ultimate user experience should recognize the value that related specialties bring to the table.

[…] The current low status of visual designers compared to their engineering counterparts is due to the design community's failure to inform the industry of their crucial role in product design. But more than that, it is due to the collective abdication of principles by visual design practitioners themselves.”
Over the past few years, the design industry has seen an uptick in agencies getting acquired by product companies. Firms like Adaptive Path, Smart Design, Hotstudio, Sofa and Teehan+Lax are either rapidly being snapped up or involuntarily closing their doors. Peter Merholz, formerly of Adaptive Path and current VP of Global Design for Groupon, explains why agencies are readily taking the buyout offers...

“• Assume people are as or more qualified than you. Before you are about to explain a paper condescendingly to someone in a dress, assume that they wrote it.

• Give feedback based on content. Ask yourself, “Would I give this feedback to a masculine-presenting white cis man?”

• Women should feel free to be assertive if that’s their personality and let’s celebrate that instead of criticizing it, but let’s also celebrate people that display leadership by empathy and encouraging.”

Basically, don't be rude.

“I envision a design practice that works in the intersection between art, design and computation. A company founded on the belief that the pragmatic and poetic is inseparable, and that modern design products should be dynamic, adaptable systems built in code. This kind of practice would create beautiful, intelligent, and functional design products for any medium, be it physical installations, web applications, or print products. Most of all, it would be a company dedicated to good ideas, with the talent to implement them despite technical requirements.”
The rise of the meta-designer, and the use of algorithmic design systems.

DUDE.
Turkish graphic designer and electrical engineer Tolga Girgin continues to experiment with calligraphy that seems to jump off the page. Girgin uses shading, shadows, and different forms of perspective to create three-dimensional letters that float, stand, drip, and slant. You can see more
