"A tacky mess: the masses vs. great design" - on the disaster of crowdsourcing design. Or tragedy... whatever.

The tragedy of the design commons.

A farmer's market with no entry requirements turns into a bazaar and then into a souvenir stand and finally into a flea market.


Wanna drive creativity and style deeper into the mud of shitdom?

Crowdsource it.

The crowd NEVER elevates the best, instead devoting most of its adulation to the insidious mediocrity.
