No Google Love for Designers

If you are passionate about good (aesthetic) design, Google is probably not the place for you.

The only company that readily comes to mind that has a true design philosophy from the top all the way down is Apple. Imagine if more companies integrated that level of commitment. What I find most interesting is how commonplace it is for engineers to make design decisions. I’m not knocking on the utility and soundness of solid feature implementation–I’m just saying that design aesthetics are very subjective and most likely not very intuitive for analytically minded people.

Nice find, Emilio!
