I think you have some good points in here, Tarik. But I wonder: If everyone is thinking like everyone else, are we really thinking? Isn’t design about thinking and reframing? And can that packaged into a framework?
I’m not against frameworks, design systems, models, etc. I am opposed to using them with no modification. I am opposed to “shoehorning” solutions into these models with no modification.
As for the UX versus the UI, I covered that in another article.
