Pointing out design flaws in public

    During a thread with Jaz in the private forum area we started going a bit off-topic about pointing out design flaws to members of staff in public for whatever reason, so I thought it would be good to make a dedicated thread!

    This doesn't have to relate to graphic design, it can be anything design related!

    So, have you ever publically pointed out an obvious design flaw?
    Or just thought, they need to change that, it's sooo obvious?!

    Yep - I do that. I was at Subway too, once, when I was looking at their menu on the wall. I got into reading the small print at the bottom when I spotted a spelling mistake. I was going to tell someone there but the wife stopped me, saying I was behaving like the kid who had just found the golden ticket! It was then that I took stock of the situation... and went to KFC instead! Sad.

    Also, why was it that I was jumping up and down on the sofa the other week when watching the apprentice, where they had to market a breakfast cereal, shouting 'it's 5 a day, not 3 a day, stupid!!!' - anyone who saw it should know...

    Lol, yeah and they called their character pants man I mean come on, what?????? lol.

    I have a new 1 to add forgot all about this thread actually, the company I currently work for had a tag line, on their website, headers, footers through out the whole company, and not 1 person in the entire company noticed this spelling mistake in this 5 word line until I just had enough of looking at it and pointed it out. :mad:

    Apparently the very, very little things drive me nuts I've noticed, lol, but I can so relate Dazzer. :)

    Im normally pointing out at signs in shops/bars/wherever and saying "that fonts shit, they should have used *insert cool font here*" much to my girlfriends dismay, then she does buy me a creme egg to shut me up for a few minutes.

    maybe I should do the same when she points out handbags/shoes/top/trousers/necklace/* with a "that's is nice isn't it" remark? :)
