comment What explains the current shift from glossy UIs to matte UIs?
I'm telling you why the trend is prevalent, I'm not able to tell you to like it.

@FacebookAnswers - by the way, billboards have never been a good example of typography, they've always been much more about BANG! and strong photographic imagery, so for them to have a lot of "realistic" effects is simply the nature of what they are.

@FacebookAnswers I've updated my answer to change "commercial print" to "high-end print" - Note: fltdsgn.com showcases a lot of so called "flat design" and it all looks like high end print of the last 25 years. (see Neville Brody, or Meta design)

The thing is "for the sake of change" isn't really expressing that it's part of a wider marketing strategy, it's kinda suggesting it's a whim (well, it is to me.) ... and perhaps, novelty expresses that too, depending on who's reading. Novelty in the context I used, is supposed to refer to "for the purposes of refreshing the product image, in the eyes of the consumer"

Re: Adobe and their continual icon rebooting, FYI, it's not for the sake of change, it's intended to imply novelty, albeit on a very simplistic level. But it tends to work, because humans do operate at some very simplistic levels.
