I am a huge fan of sketchplanations. This one got me to stop and think. I do know that there is a difference between a product being created or used by a right handed person versus a left handed person. I also am familiar and know that men’s and women’s shirts can have different ways to button them.
Until I saw this image, I did not question that pianos were built for men. An observation that some of my followers would have known. While others would never have thought of the consequences of the design.
My personal pet peeve is that the people who design products often never have to repair them. That the focus group does not have a diverse enough group.
Every once in a while it is nice for me to be reminded of something that I should have realized sooner. And I don’t mind admitting that I learn or become aware of something new everyday.
