Jon Ive’s Retromorphism

Jon Ive’s vandalism revamp of the Steve Jobs/Scott Forstall original iOS design can best be summed up by comparing two icons:

iOS7Camera

Ive hated the textures and real-life mimicry in iOS.

Yet he went retro for the Camera icon?

I can imagine all the young kids with an iDevice later this year asking Mommy and Daddy WTF that weird black shape is. Because it looks nothing like the camera of the iDevice itself.

Jon Ive should be restricted to hardware design.
