Due to the immediate satisfaction of lighting a match, this fire-starting tool has remained popular, even with the growing presence of more convenient models. To expand on the popularity of the item, one designer created 'The Perfect Match' - a convenient set of matches that eliminate user-confusion.
The box comes complete with four different sizes, with each size color coded to represent sizing from short to long. This method enables users to quickly decipher the appropriate size necessary for completing a task. As the designer Leo Burnett explains, "Life is full of things that need burning. Some things, like candles, need short matchsticks. Other things, like dynamite, need long sticks,"
This convenience-focused set of matches emphasis the important role design plays within enhancing existing technologies.
