Frank Chimeros on Timeless Design

I have a pet peeve when it comes to describing design (or any kind of creative work). The word “timeless” makes my skin crawl…

I read an iPhone app review earlier this week that said the app’s design was “timeless.” And I went, “Ha. Ha ha ha ha ha.” The app was quite pretty. And Lord knows there’s plenty of good things about iPhones, apps, stores, and design. But an iPhone app is about as timeless as an ice cream cone given to a chimp on a hot day.
