I’m having fun (lots of it) and not taking any of that “design thing” too seriously. After doing it since 1999 I’d go insane if I was too serious ;)
Nice analogy with the pendulum, I remember in the late 90’s there was also push towards “rounded” everything, even though it wasn’t that easy to do in code and had to be improvised with badly antialiased gifs. Those were the days.
It should never stop swinging — if we set on one style it’d be like government regulated design — a nightmare (and boring) ;)
