Geri Coady on Design Trends

Should we real­ly be drop­ping but­tons, even if it neg­a­tive­ly affects intu­itive inter­ac­tion pat­terns or con­fus­es peo­ple with cog­ni­tive dis­abil­i­ties? Should we real­ly be using thin type to look mod­ern” at the risk of decreas­ing leg­i­bil­i­ty? And tell me, should we real­ly be drop­ping tex­tures and reduc­ing con­trast because it’s the styl­ish” thing to do this week? 

Geri makes some amaz­ing points, and then drops the mic. Such a great read.
