"It's as pretty as I'm able to make it" - An excuse that shows an opportunity

When a developer gives a demo that shows code with a UI, they invariably make no effort to make it look in any way visually appealing or show any indication they've done anything more than put controls on the screen.

They'll also excuse their lack of effort on the basis that they don't have the skills, knowledge, or experience to do any better. Also, maybe with a subtle joke that designers are somehow lesser. :(

"I'm not a designer"

With a little effort, presenters could significantly distinguish themselves from "all" the others who don't put in any effort here.

It would also be a great opportunity for showing something that easily makes a basic UI look better than many do by default.

My cogs are whirring.....
