retro guis were neumorphic not skeumorphic and i will fight to the death on this matter

Submitted by twovests in just_post

been doodlin UIs in my notebooks that were very windows 98 inspired

buttons raised and indented from a common plane

that gray stone-like material painted with few accented splashes of colors

light coming in from the top-left of your screen to cast depth and shadow to each object

the flat-like icons of internet explorer, the windows start menu, of the folders and notepads

then some hippy UI sons-of-bitches come along and call it "neumorphism"?? okay fine i can get on that, sure, we have more resolution to our displays, more power

make them soft, round, render these sliding stone slates as a softer, rubberier material, okay

return me now to the UIs of engraving and reliefs

yeah music, art, and fashion aren't the only fields where trends repeat themselves. it's about time we start to return to this style

I just google "neumorphism" and good grief it's just a high definition windows 95-98.
