Judging from Google’s – and Android’s – coherence in creating a design language for themselves, a “design ethicist” would seem to a person who uses abstractions to explain, maybe not incompetence, because they are highly trained yadda yadda, but arbitrary decisions that result in poor design overall. Like maybe they put too much thought into getting rid of skeumorphism, into being reactionary toward Apple.

I’m always thinking these things. It’s frustrating.
