10 Times Designers Were Really Creating for the People Who Use Their Products

In a world where we can often buy just about anything we want with only a click of a mouse or a swipe on a screen, it can feel a little exhausting to constantly be marketed to.

That potential for exhaustion makes it extra nice when you see a product that is so clearly designed for the person who will buy it.

From doormats that were clearly designed to help you out to a mug that doubles as a hand warmer, here are 10 times that designers proved they had their users in mind when they came up with a product.
