ASK DN: Anyone tired of seeing long shadows?

    I would like to formally apologize on part of the people that took my post seriously and actually turned this into a bandwagon. I really thought all it would do was get a couple chuckles out of people not turn into a ridiculous thing.

    That being said, the way I'm personally handling this is continuing to cheer on anyone doing this just because I think it's so ridiculous and honestly there's no reason to be mad about it, even though I know people love getting mad on the internet.

      Jeff,

      I don't think your apology is even necessary. Your original article was pretty obviously satirical, and this bandwagon design approach is inevitably the new norm.

      I think it's up to designers to distinguish useful patterns from design trends and keep design to core principals and focused on usability, problem solving, and tasteful aesthetics that strengthen their concepts.

      Plus, as ridiculous as this has become, it truly is hilarious at the same time.

      I'm baffled that you need to write this response. I thought this thread was just a follow up in the same spirit as your post
