When Wrong Does Not Apply

R. E. Wagner:

I have great respect for Neven Mrgan as a designer. He’s an accomplished artisan and not to be trifled with. However, his post on how the design of iOS 7 icons is “wrong” is misguided and I feel the need to address why I think that is, because I often see designers get caught by this particular hobgoblin of consistency — that a design just ‘feels’ right to them without offering any rational justification.

Agreed. Mrgan, who is generally a smart guy when it comes to these things, is totally off base here. The idea that the icons are “wrong”, regardless of whether or not you like them, is absurd.
