37signals also has a section in which they designed alternatives to bad design, without being contracted to do the job. "37signals turns frustration into inspiration"... Isn't this just great =;)

- 37BetterBank
- 37BetterFedEx
- 37BetterMotors (My favorite!)

They show the before/after effect, or the ordinairy/different contrast, that good Interaction Design should accomplish.

I'm a big fan of these guys!!!
