After the madness of Monday, you’d think the Police would have picked me up and thrown me into a cell.
While normally I would take this as a sign that I can push things even further, even I accept there’s only so much anyone can take of my best friends penis [pun, most definitely not intended] so today I’m slowing the pace down and getting to something you may find interesting. Or at least more interesting than the subject matter of yesterday’s post.
I’ve written about my admiration – and occasional derision – for designers many times.
This is not purely because my wife is one, but because when they truly overcome – or solve – a problem, they do it in the most ingenious of ways.
Design helped Apple increase their brand value.
Design helped SONOS create a static logo that produces sound.
Design helped make the World laugh.
OK, this last point is taking the piss … but you get the gist of what I’m saying.
Anyway, the reason I am saying all this is because I recently saw another bit of brilliant design.
Yep, stairs that have wheelchair access built right into them.
Simple, brilliant and effective.
As with many ingenious ideas, the solution seems so obvious.
As with many obvious ideas, it needs someone special to realise it.
Think sharp. Execute simple.
