Your Inconsistent Design Makes Me Worry About Your Entire Product



This is from a product I use daily. Who wrote this code and thought they were done? Who approved these two button styles next to one another?

I have this vision of a developer choosing a library that made their development life easier. I picture this code going straight into production use without review. Next, I picture the designer who works there rolling their eyes, checking out, and heading to LinkedIn to see what other opportunities exist.

I'm being unfairly harsh, but it makes me wonder what other sloppiness is happening inside this product.
