Skeuo What? An Interactive Infographic about Skeuomorphic Design

“Metaphors are one of the most powerful weapons in your arsenal as a presenter. In today's fast-paced world of communication, a well-thought-out metaphor acts as a shortcut to meaning.”
Bruna Martinuzzi

A wise man once said that a metaphor is poetry. Every day we dive into the world of digital poetry by interacting with software, web interfaces, etc. This new form of poetry has different names and one of them is skeuomorphism. Web designers keep arguing on the accuracy of this term usage in the field of web design, but there is an axiom which is beyond any doubt - skeuomorphic design makes it easier to interact with digital emulations by transforming it as the process of cultural heritage.
