    I'm a big fan of responsive design, but I definitely agree about homogenization. The Twitter/Twiterrific/Tweetbot example is pretty damning, and in my opinion Eli's "dimensional" Apple Watch mockup is clearly the better design.

    I think this is just a temporary overcorrection though, and that good designers will learn to find a balance. If you look at the work of someone like Ben Cline, you can already see how flat and textured elements can work together beautifully.

      That's a great example; flat and skeuomorphic done in moderation.

      I'm just wondering what does comparing the homogenization of proprietary apps that aren't responsive due to them being proprietary apps have to do with responsive web design?
