30 Days of Thanks: Design
From the chairs with no instructions, to the sweaters that require no ironing, to the kitchens that anyone can navigate. Experiences and products are everywhere and go least noticed when designed well.
The fact that you knew to pull on that door rather than push on it without ever having to read a sign.
The fact that everyone knows how to operate a chair without instructions even though all chairs do not look exactly alike.
To the ATM machines that now take seconds to operate.
Great design can communicate years of information without having a paragraph of text.
To the business development person who spends more time being a resource and less time being a sales person.
To the floor manager who spends more time figuring out what you need and less time on what you’re asking for.
For the thousands of poorly designed experiences, there are a thousand more wonderful experiences that get unnoticed.
This thank you goes out to the thousands of wonderfully designed experiences that go unnoticed, because that’s what they do best.Tags: 2012, Design, thankful, thanks, Thanksgiving
