Fresh Coffee

Apologies for the slightly crappy image. Thanks iPhone! This coffee pot was spotted at a client's brand new building this week. Their last building had a lovely machine that made your coffee to spec while you waited. Now, it's up to the staff to make their own pot, and apparently freshness is an issue. Bring on the trusty Post-It note! That note stuck to the coffee server tells everyone what time that pot was filled/brewed. Who is going to design the coffee pot complete with digital readout so we (horror of horrors) won't be drinking stale coffee?

Going Up, or Down or ??

Apparently, spring has been busy! Sorry for the lack of posts, but I've got a bunch of fun things to add here.
This elevator panel was spotted on a ferry near Seattle. On my way up to the passenger deck, I spotted this amazingly annotated panel. Was it really that difficult to get from 1 to 2? How many passengers had difficulty with this concept? From home made labels to sharpies, apparently there was a good deal of confusion of just how to get from level 1 to level 2. Going up?
