Digital Modernism, design is content-centered again

"The recently popularized “flat” design style may be a trend, but it is also the manifestation of a desire for greater authenticity in design, a desire to curb superfluous decoration and to focus on the content itself. " A nice article about the where digital design is going: http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2013/07/16/authentic-design/

The design should be content-centered; base your design on the content that is represented in your app or website
"Only when you work with real content can you begin to truly transform function into form"

Concepts like alarm clock app "rise" and the "new car UI" from Matthaeus Krenn (http://matthaeuskrenn.com/new-car-ui/) take the content-centered design to a new hight
And especially in cars its all about keeping attention on the road and not about how nice those little touch screen buttons are designed
