    I think the designers did a great job with the concept and marketing materials, but this we are now seeing, is just AI doing, not the designers doing.. so I guess there is no need to feel bad since it's not their fault?

      Blaming the AI seems silly to me, this whole thing just feels like a glorified wordpress template that looked good in screenshots and trash in the wild.

      Seems like all the """""""""""AI""""""""""" does it normalise the images with filters (Probably just colour LUTs), crop the photos using OpenCV face detection, then generate a colour palette from the images (like how iTunes does with albums). These are then chucked haphazardly into some "editorial" style wordpress-like theme which would only look good in a PSD or sketch file and looks/feels awful in the wild.

      Marketing should be blamed for the AI lies, but seen as the end result is pretty much a wordpress theme then the design team are to blame for these shoddy sites.
