Be nice. Or else.

The Apple Watch one makes no sense. Desktop, phone, and tablet UIs are most of the time based on or build around the color white, which makes this mockup suitable to be used as a stylistic choice. The Apple Watch UI, however, is centered around the color black.
I'm pretty sure I know what I'm talking about and many people over here seem to agree.
If salary really determined the value of UX, enterprise UIs would be a lot nicer than they currently are.
On the subject of UX, my website is already 10 times more accessible to mobile users and screen readers compared to yours.
Thanks. That was a good read.
As I'm learning more about graphic and industrial design I've grown more skeptical about UI design as an industry (I'm also quite salty on DN). Although it's interesting to hear it from a web designer.
I honestly wouldn't be surprised that a "Dieter Rams" inspired app would suck. It simply shows that that designer doesn't seem to know any industrial designers besides him (and Jony Ive.)
Ideally one would read about many different designers from various fields and synthesize a personal opinion on what is the best way to design instead of cherry picking people here and there that in specific contexts seem to agree with you.
The bigger irony is that he apparently studied "Visual Design" in university, while he seems to fail in UX/UI design in addition to visual (graphic) design.

I'm glad to hear this, it's great to see DN take action. Welcome to DN!
