25 Designs That Are So Bad They Should Get An Award.

Uncategorized |

This might seem like a screen capture of a scene from a television crime drama but it's not.

A subreddit called "Crappy Design" shines an embarrassing light on a series of seemingly normal designs that aren't really all that perfect. From big screw-ups to small ones, these designers proved that nobody's perfect. In fact, as you scroll down through each of these designs, you'll be scratching your head and wondering how or even why on Earth anyone was even allowed to come up with them. These designs are so impractical that it's virtually impossible not to judge. But fair warning, once you see some of the worst design fails ever, you may never recover from the shock and disappointment.Believe it or not; there was no actual homicide committed in this bedroom. The bedspread is rose themed. But as bad as red roses look, we imagine that a brown color would have been even worse.

You have to make sure that you've bought good quality when picking out this type of bar stool.

Otherwise, you'll have to breathe deeply as you get run through. This photo is so cringeworthy. We dread to think what would have happened if someone had been sitting on it when this occurred.

Tradition is one of the reasons why Americans stick to the imperial system instead of the metric system.

It doesn't matter if something is better. Some societies are set in their own way, and it could take centuries to embrace a completely different concept. But logical or not, people are just used to it.

The design on this bread bag makes it seem like the bread slices themselves are covered in mold.

The company that's trying to sell the bread will soon find out that no one will want to buy your bread. But if you buy it and put it in the work fridge, none of your co-workers will try stealing your lunch again. That's for sure!

Employees at Jimmy John's learned a valuable lesson after this perfectly harmless misunderstanding.

People should start writing in caps. Who knew that writing BLT with cheese in lowercase letters would come off like an insult? Thankfully, the customer wasn't angry after the manager cleared things up.

The kind of packaging on these LOL Dolls is proof that what you see isn't always what you get.

This person discovered that there was more trash to throw away than there were toys inside the packaging. It might have been easier to unpack it in the store and give the trash back to the store.

The advertisement agency should have thought twice before putting a baby on this sign.

It comes off like it's asking parents to dump their babies in bins on the beach, which most people would have an issue with unless they're sociopaths. So this ad agency should hire some new advertising agents.

A period skirt is the design piece that every woman’s been looking for, said no one ever!

There’s no way that the designer could have been a woman. She would have never created such a horrible skirt. On the plus side, anyone wearing this at a hospital will get to pass in front of everyone.

If you believe this design, then you really shouldn’t trust buying tires that were made in Chile.

The designer should have never put the words “Safety Warning” and “Made in Chile” under it. It suggests that the tires are defective. And honestly, most drivers would worry about driving their car.

This puzzle is a huge brain teaser as one couple found out when they got it during the Pikachu film.

After trying and failing to complete it without cheating, they looked for the solution in the back. It turns out that the designer simply went through the line to get to the finish line. How infuriating is that?

Just imagine how you would feel if someone forced you to wear this when you went to work.

Spacing and font style are very important. Otherwise, an innocent word like click can turn into something so offensive that no customer will want to open the door to receive a delivered package.

This store advertises plus-size clothing, but can you spot where they messed up in these ads?

This is so rude! Where are the plus-sized models? There's no way that customers can really see what these clothing items would look like on someone like them because they're using models that are slim.

The problem with zippers is that the fabric print above can be totally different below.

In this case, the designer has created a humiliating and unintended version of the Kama Poohtra! And the Winnie the Pooh in the bottom looks like it stuck its head in the honey jar out of embarrassment.

They must have run out of material for baby Jesus's head so they gave him a head transplant instead.

The head looks like the love child of the Statue of Liberty or Lisa Simpson. The least they could have done is air-brushed the head with white paint. Even Mary seems ashamed of the child she is holding.

This outdoor display is bound to give vegans and vegetarians a massive heart attack.

This furniture set is actually made out of crystal, but it looks more like something that came out of a butcher's freezer or Lady Gaga's closet. But despite its ugliness, it was probably very expensive.

Oh sure, there's a fire in progress, but apparently, you have to be concerned about waking someone up.

When there's a fire, expect this door to fling open so hard that it will come off its hinges. Maybe this wasn't always a fire door. Someone probably just added the “Fire Exit Only” wording later on.

If this was some sort of prank made by students, then this error message would definitely be funny.

Imagine trying to go to a website but are denied access and not because it's a naughty site. It's because the site is classified as education. Whoever handles IT at this place should consider another line of work.

When a cat tried opening a drawer, it accidentally closed the bathroom door and trapped someone.

As bad as it sounds, it's safe to say that someone will come around eventually to use the bathroom and open the door. But it could have been worse. This person could have been trapped in a sauna.

Someone in Belgium decided that it would be a good idea to place garbage cans on top of benches.

They didn't think this design through. But common sense should have told them that when those bins overflow, they'll fall on the person sitting there or on the benches, making them too nasty to sit on.

Well, the cup definitely has plenty of quality like it says, but unfortunately, it's all low.

Now, this is ironic. We feel bad for the person who reached out to grab their mug and wound up with a broken handle. Now that's what we call cheap "quali-tea". Then again, it never said it was good quality.

They must have been in a hurry when they placed this bench down at the city park.

This will undoubtedly become a very popular bench for all the wrong reasons. With the sprinkler spewing water underneath, it's going to turn into a public bidet whether people want to or not.

These so-called water heater experts will not be getting any phone calls any time soon.

This bench advertisement has a major flaw. Someone put a bookbag that's blocking the phone number. We'll bet that the water heater is running to remove the backpack before they go out of business.

Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it like this person did in the change room.

He asked for a door to be installed in the men's changing room so the manager ordered one made of glass. Technically, he did what was asked. Now all they need is a big sticker to cover it up, so no one looks in.

It turns out that you can't even trust Google Assistant to store the location you are in.

So much for artificial intelligence! But technically, it did what the person asked. It remembered the words “This location.” So, maybe the person should have been a little more specific with the request.

The line at the bottom of these stairs was either a design flaw or placed there intentionally.

It has undoubtedly messed with a few people's heads as they tried to step down only to realize they were already on the ground. Was that last line really necessary? Someone could have broken their foot.
