The efforts of good designers are often taken for granted. And it’s only when we see bad designs that we get to compare and appreciate their great works. At least that’s the only good thing about epic design fails. So, it’ time to pay tribute (once again) to the designers who are so bad at their jobs. While we understand that everyone (even a designer) makes mistakes, these failures are so blatantly outrageous that they’re beyond our understanding.
Were the designers drunk when they made these things? Did they purposely mess up their works for some reason? It’s just hard to comprehend how a professional designer can create such an outrageous mistake. Product designs, architecture, advertisements, landscapes, public signage – these things are made to make our daily lives easier and more convenient. But if these things give you more confusion than assistance, that’s how you distinguish bad designs.
