Humanizing Design

This isn't actually by me, I just found it pretty funny.

This was the front page of the Home section of the Staten Island Advance yesterday.

The article is about how home appliances are being designed in a more user friendly manner. However, the cold, angular kitchen they used to illustrate "Humanizing Design" almost looks like an editorial cartoon. There's absolutely nothing cozy or human about it! Even the typeface on the headline is cold and angular. Wonderful irony there.
