“The life of a designer is a life of fight: fight against the ugliness.”
– MASSIMO VIGNELLI
This is how my life is: when I see something so badly designed, I have to create something better! (Yes, I know how ego this sounds, but admit it; designers will always strive to do better). Sometimes I can spend hours redesigning random stuff, and sometimes I have a couple of minutes to spare on a friday evening, like now. I don’t even want to show you the image on top, first of all: ignore the coffee-stains. Second, the design is to bad I want to spill hot coffee over whoever made this. And we got an entire book in this same area of graphics. I’ve got to tell you, it is not easy making good coffee based on bad design. Haha, ego again.
The illustrations underneath is something I created right now, as I know people have to make coffee at work, and it is my job to teach them how. And for you Norwegian guys with fancy espresso-makers at home; here are some free coffee recipes. Enjoy!
