Not all software is consumery and sexy. Not everything can be Airbnb or Spotify. Much of the software that runs the planet is boring, but essential. However, such software doesn’t have to be uninspired and ugly. Their users also use Gmail, Facebook, and Uber. By the billions. Therefore they don’t necessarily expect unattractive, unintuitive software when they’re at work. They deserve better.
