Tired of "beautiful" design?

    Couldn't agree more. I think the problem is that everything has been "done". By this I mean most apps available have an equivalent app trailing closely or leading the pack. Everyone is just looking for their share of the market which in my opinion is just too big these days. ex.How many time tracking or invoicing apps do we really need?

      I think the "done" part is somewhat of a copout. There's a lot of stuff out there that needs beautiful design and functionality, but doesn't necessarily fall into the "cool" or (sigh) "sexy" category.

      One of my favorite examples: http://enps.com. That's the software that newsrooms (TV stations, networks, etc.) use to run their programming. Looks terrible, but makes a BOATLOAD of cash every year.

      That's where design is needed most: dethroning outdated enterprise software.
