DESIGN OF THE WEEK

Analysis: Great design doesn't have to be all-encompassing. Sometimes, it's the smallest detail that catches the eye. The use of a podcast microphone in the shape of a tooth, for a podcast about dentistry, is fantastics. That single, extremely clever detail makes this design a winner. The lesson here is that you don't have to be a design wizard, but always be sure to pay attention to the little things.
