Ok, we have all been through it; the dreaded IKEA instructions. I purchased a bed frame from IKEA not too long ago and although it took only about an hour to construct, I had to examine, interpret, decipher and whatever else you want to call it in order to understand a couple steps in the process. They rely solely on pictures to describe what needs to be done and in my opinion sometimes that’s just not good enough. Although the pictures can be considered a “universal language” meaning whoever is following along, from whatever language background, the pictures are depicted the same. I believe that the images can be consumed/interpreted differently by different cultures, demographics, etc and that words could help significantly if they accompanied them.
