Skeuomorphic Design — A controversial UX approach that is making a comeback
Justin Baker

Skeuomorphic design had it’s place, and still has. It’s only moving around from place to place. Skeuomorphic is everywhere, even in minimalistic design: A button is an area that has to be pressed. Whatever the skin is — the UX is the same.
What about icons? App icons? Emojis? There is always a tension between abstract visuals and explicit visuals. Everything has an icon today: People need a visual reference to quickly interact with something. This is a thing of evolution — and I don’t think this human behavior is about to change in the near thousands of years.
