Why one should hire great designers

PostReach developed a set of icons which are supposed to allow users to cast votes on specific areas without having to leave text comments. For example, that one with the heart means “It Touched My Heart.”

Ok, I get the idea but were these really the designs they wanted to use? Lots of weird iconography – the one of the right is supposed to mean “great find!” but to me is “i want to be a priest!” (it’s a cross on a chain, no?).

The worst is the one on the left – it means “Cool Stuff” but c’mon that’s a steamy pile of dog poo, no?
