It seems our February 28th Blog post ‘Top 5 Mistakes of User Interface Design’ got a lot of interest, which got us thinking about ‘naming and shaming’ examples of bad GUI design. And for this we need your help.
Specifically we want to hear your stories about consumer devices, office technology, home appliances, test equipment, industrial control systems and any other piece of tech where the user interface has been below par and led to a poor (or even catastrophic) user experience.
All you have to do is enter the details of the technology and why it should be ‘named and shamed’ via our online form . We’ll sift through the entries and then post some of the best ones in the coming weeks with a prize for the best (or worst!) example.
Alternatively tell us about any "Great" UI designs you would like to share with the world and why you find them a pleasure to use!
