15 Designs That Make People’s Lives Harder
When done properly, designs can incredibly improve our quality of life. On the other hand, when a poor job is done we’re left with a keyboard with letters we can’t even see or a mug that will poke you in the face with every sip you take. Unfortunately, these examples are just the beginning of a long list of questionable mistakes people came across.
Now I’ve Seen Everything showcases how important a good design is.
