  1. Well, at least Pinterest has a solid minimalist design that is visually engaging and contains visitor value. Moving to the new design gig, what are you going to do, golf or fly fish all day?

    As opposed to the poorest excuse for high end design I have ever seen. Offering NOTHING of value and a total waste of time.

    A grade school kid with a Mac and the font Baskerville Serial Regular installed could type up the same so called design in less than 10 minutes.

    We are still living with the minimalist confusing icon designs Ive introduced with iOS7. Now that iOS15 is out, we lived with this visual eyesore, replacing beautiful eye candy from Forstall and Jobs, for far too long.

    Jony’s gone, time for a BIG change. Scott, Apple needs your magic…

    1. It’s because they are arrogant pricks living off their past accomplishments. The obscenely large text is an eyesore, you can’t even read it without moving away from your screen. I suppose you need to be a super-special elite to contact them since there’s nothing on the website besides their navel-gazing “mission statement”. Ive without Jobs is a fish out of water, he’s made his millions though, he should just go away.
