In February I wrote a blog post called "Unnecessary Explanations," citing the preponderance of explanatory screens for iPad magazines and other iPad apps as a sign of poorly-executed user experience design. [Stack America editor] Andrew Losowsky suggested to me I could parody the concept of instructional screens altogether by creating an illustration of an instructional screen for a print magazine, and after the two of us riffed on this idea over email for a while, we came up with this.
