Get Info Redesigned

Get Info by Ramotion

This is a really interesting proposed redesign of OS X’s standard Get Info window by interface design studio Ramotion. It applies a fresh, Yosemite-like coat of paint onto a design that has hardly changed in a decade. It reminds me that each time Apple implements a major overhaul of its desktop operating system’s visual furniture, they always seem to neglect pedestrian but important elements—Get Info is one of them, but I’d like to see redesigned Fonts and Colors palettes even more. I’d guess that those two are more deeply integrated into more workflows than Get Info, and they’re both deeply broken in terms of usability.

That’s not to take away from Ramotion’s Get Info design though. It’s quite attractive and full of interesting ideas. See the full project at
