Do you ever look at a building or a poster or a sign or anything really and think to yourself, “hmmm…that really looks like sh*t?”

You know you do! And I do it, too!

It’s kind of mind-blowing that people keep their jobs when they’re so bad at them, ya know?

So I’m here to say that you and I shouldn’t feel bad about thinking that way, because there is bad design all over the place and it’s actually kind of hard to avoid…
