Good design is sort of invisible, isn’t it? Maybe that’s why it’s so underappreciated. When something is well designed you don’t notice how well it works because it works so well. But when something is poorly designed? Then you notice. You notice that massive building blocking the view, or the door that opens into the bathroom so awkwardly you have to step in the toilet to close it, or the poor transit system, or the congested coffee shop, or that there isn’t enough counter space in your kitchen where you need it, and the list goes on. When it’s bad, you notice, when it’s good, you don’t.
So take a look around, how “invisible” is your house, your neighbourhood, your city?
