    I love how IDEO's approach remains simple yet timeless among these other redesigns. They don't focus on a visual redesign or a random trend, instead they redefine the very concept of that which they're trying to redesign. I love that.

      Jenny Holzer's isn't about trends or UI to me. It's about an experience that revolves around showing me something I've never seen before. Like the random subreddit or random wiki-entry buttons. Granted they are secondary use cases but they reaffirm how all encompassing these tools can be.

        Sure enough, but then again I don't believe her attempt could really be seen as a 'redesign'. It's basicly just a gimmick added as a layer on top of the existing Google ecosystem. And that's fine, she's an artist, not a designer.

      I love how their concept was actually implemented. They basically envisioned Google Now a few years before it was launched.

    Will be using this as a good example of UI vs UX - Shepard Fairey dives straight into a UI redesign, IDEO ask what it is people actually use Google for and address the situations.

      I love how he gave the Google homepage the Obama "Hope" poster treatment –4 years before he made the actual poster.

    Genuinely couldn't tell if these were a joke, but I let the date inform my assumption that they're all serious.
