Welcome to Design Details: small touches that make you smile.

Each issue features some examples of nice details from the digital and physical worlds, along with the occasional not-so-nice detail where things could have been improved.


Nice Details

Avoiding spoilers with BT Sport

BT Sport broadcasts sports in the UK.

These days, it's pretty difficult to avoid finding out the outcome of a game if you missed it, but a nice touch with BT Sport's app is they include a 'Spoiler Free Landing Page' option which takes you into a page in the app that doesn't show any results. Perfect for when you've missed the game and want to watch the highlights unspoiled.

IKEA's fake video games

If you've ever been to IKEA you'll have seen their fake TVs and game consoles. They're non-functional props made from plastic so you can get an idea of how their furniture will look in a real home. But did you know they also have fake games too? In a playful touch, the games are all named after real games, with an IKEA product name thrown in. Super MALM Bros!
