Better Than A Kitten

Is your design work more popular than a kitten?

So, you think you’re a good designer? You went to a top design school? You’ve got a portfolio filled to the brim with cutting-edge design work? Well, think again. Because you ain’t got nothing if you can’t beat a kitten.

And no, obviously I don’t mean literally beat a kitten. I mean put your work next to photo of a cute kitten and have people vote which is the more popular of the two. That’s the challenge laid down by betterthankittens.com

Everybody knows the internet was invented so we could all look at pictures of cute, funny and often weird pictures of kittens (well that’s how it feels that sometimes) so what better way to gauge the worthiness of your designs than to compare them to the internets favourite way to waste time? That is if you’re up to the challenge.

If you’re anything like me you’ll find it pretty hard to click on anything but the kitten, which is why it’s so impressive that some pieces of work are ‘Better than Kittens’ so make sure you check out the hall of fame to see which designers beat the kittens.

It’s a great fun idea, but there’s also a hidden prize: beat the kittens, make it to the Hall of Fame, and the site links to your work. That’s got to be worth the challenge. Let me know in the comments section below how you got on.
