It used to be that "Sex sells". Actually that is probably still the case. However good design sells as well. Thats why new iPhone releases create long lines for days and people buy fuel guzzling sports cars even though they'll never have to go over 90mph.
One of my new passions these days is good design. Didn't even know it was an interest of mine till I found myself talking about it a lot during a job interview. While browsing the web looking up mundane things that have been restored with outstanding design, I stumbled upon these awesome Hello Kitty fire extinguishers. Compared to the drab design of the typical fire extinguisher, these ones actually make you wish there was a small fire in your kitchen.
