My philosophy is that everything has a purpose, an intent if you will.
If it works flawlessly as intended, then it has been done properly. If it fails, then there is no amount or glitter you can trough at it that can fix it. Making something pretty that doesn't work properly, is just pointless.
What I love
UX! I love a good user experience. It's not just about making things pretty. It's about using design to make thinks work better, faster, enjoyable.
