Overheard at dinner last night…

Amusing observation overheard at dinner last night:

"PlentyOfFish? If I hear about another ugly website that hits millions of users, I’m going to lose hope for good design"

:)

Another point that will stay with me is one of the folks there saying that he’ll avoid designing consumer websites with glitter, hearts, etc., by never making websites for the mainstream audience. Very perceptive and consistent, imho – it’s the folks that want to design for the masses, but force an unappealing top-down aesthetic that I get annoyed by.
