We’re excited about the new year so for the month of January we’re posting a series of all manner of things that motivate and inspire us.

The Uncomfortable Project

Be warned, today's selection, from Mike, might make you cringe. While our other selections in this series have involved either our beginnings or things done well, The Uncomfortable Project is a set of reimagined objects with glaring usability issues (the above fork with a knife blade handle for example). It's an inspiring project, even if its results represent the opposite of what one should strive for in their work. That said, it's interesting to view design with such a well-considered malicious slant.
