I don’t like Vitamin Water, nor do I like their packaging. But the simple device of repetition, along with the candy-like colors, makes this vending machine look pretty great. I could almost feel its magnetic pull on the dollars in my wallet as I walked past.
Last I checked, vending machines were intended for convenience. Yet here’s a machine so unclear in concept they had to add a sign to it to explain what it does and how to make it work. Is this really a way people want to buy ice cream? Also, you might have noticed the graphics are a confusing mess.
As a side note, this is the first post made possible by a response to my Request for Sh*tty (RFS). A big thanks to Adam at Panoply for sending it in.
