Mac OS X 'Ivericks' concept

Hi,

Some of you may have seen this before, but this is the first time I've been able to post this with my own side of the story.

Ivericks is a vision of an iOS 7 inspired Mac desktop that might appear in the future. I created it for 2 reasons. Firstly, I thought it would be fun to see how it might look. It's a designer's prerogative to experiment. Secondly I wanted to see people's reaction to it, whether it would get the same cries of disgust as iOS 7 did when it was first released even though polls now suggest people are warming to the idea.

Here is my concept. You can view more on my website at studoesdesign.co.uk

Now I want to get some constructive feedback that I can reply to and you can ask me questions. The articles that went around the web happened while I was asleep (I'm in the UK) so I missed a lot of the initial excitement. Tell me if you hate it or love it. Come back in half an hour, a day or a week and have another look and see if your opinion changes. Ivericks was an experiment and now I want to find out the results.

Thanks for reading,

Stu
