more bad ui from Adobe

January 27th, 2009

Found this Adobe ui bashing blog today. I really think we need more of this, our standards for ui aren't good enough. We do a lot of criticism for bad code, because we're technically minded. But bad code is less harmful sometimes than bad ui.

There's a reason ui critique is so hard to do without getting into a fit of fury. It's like a guy standing over you saying "no, don't tie your shoe laces like that, do it like this". And then he forces you to do it his way every single day for the rest of your life.

Of course, this isn't the first time we've seen Adobe, the tool builders for the designers of the world, complimented on their ui.
