Bad Design

To paraphrase Will Rogers,

“Everyone talks about bad design but nobody does anything about it.”

Last Friday, I talked about the process of good design. Today we’ll go in another direction.

Who designed kitchen stove oven controls to have “Broil” right next to “Off”?

So much for the home-grown sun-dried tomatoes slow-drying in a 150 degree oven for 4 hours. Hubby got up at midnight to turn the oven off (what a sweetheart!) and, well, “Off” looked a lot like “Broil” at 12am.
