    I really like the simple visual style and I think it's an interesting approach you're taking with your business! I just signed up for the newsletter.

    I disagree. Designers using Abstract are not artists. They're working to solve their users' problems by building intuitive and robust user interfaces. That's best done by following common UX patterns and familiar UI components, not with “creative” parallax effects that are hard for developers to implement. Of course designers working with user interfaces should think like engineers – they should know what possibilities and limitations there are when building software.

    We should obviously keep pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with technology. But novelty is almost never the solution to common UI problems that 99% of product designers are working to solve. Product designers are not artists. They’re problem solvers.
