The standard reference for this is The Design of Everyday Things by Don Norman where he discusses stovetops and their controls in some detail(!). In this case it should be clear, unlike for our stove, which burner each control controls. Same goes for light switches. Same goes, as much as possible, for controls in a nuclear power plant.

Name is Ena Bacanovic, but Ruby for everyone. 22 years old, currently living and working in Zagreb / Croatia. My first encounter with graphic design was back in the days of elementary school, in art class, and since then, design is something that I do every day. I love making simple and clean things that have complicated stories behind them, with a dose of humor, if possible. When I’m not on the computer working on a new projects or sleeping, I play drums in a female band Punčke and run The Design Blog.
We usually only see the winners. The losers tend to disappear from the record. Which is why all the fund managers in the papers seem to be giving great returns, or starting the next Whatsapp or Instagram seems like such a sure fire way to get rich. We don’t see all the funds, apps and entrepreneurs who never made it.
