ToeKnee

Users. The unknown masses looking and judging. Constantly surprising you with their choices, wants and needs.

ToeKnee, This is awesome. I can say that because I did tech support for two years. These are the people that call. Great image!

ToeKnee: I love it… this is a great way of acting out our frustration over years of aggrevated users. Ive got plenty to say…

bharper

lol, this would have been a good image (#2) to use in the corporate (mcdonalds logo) dsnlg. maybe i should edit the logo out?

ToeKnee

I’m having a much harder time with this theme that I initally thought. I wanted to go back to the singular “User”, and his thought process.

Clever! So our lobotomized users will never hit the back button! That makes sense!

ToeKnee

Only for those select few users you can actually track down. And even then there is the chance that they’ll just hit back 500 times quickly in a row in a spastic fit.

And this image initally came from phrenology, not lobomoty. Although the idea of lobotimizing some of my users is appealing. (or is it re-lobomitizing?)

bharper

You finally succumbed to the pressure Ben.. Retro imagery… You are truly a Designologuer now!

yeah…. i didnt do it on purpose tho.. i had an idea to convey a use of a computer that was not normal.. i took some pictures of my girlfriend carrying wine glasses atop my new lcd monitor as if she were a clueless waitress who didn’t know how to use the damn thing… needless to say, it didnt work out to well… so, i did a google image search for computer baby.. and this showed up… this was an old german design flyer.. for some baby user group.. i thought it was an of an amazing quality.. there you have it.
