It’s not easy being a designer. Even for the best of designers, it’s pretty much inevitable that eventually, they’re going to make a mistake — sometimes a big mistake! That’s what these designers did. These artists’ projects were originally created with the best of intentions, but ultimately, they had all sort of unintended consequences.
We’ve gathered 75 of the most hilarious design fails to share with you today and brighten your spirits. It doesn’t matter how bad your day is going, at least you can take solace in the fact that you’re not the designer who accidentally made a school bus advertisement telling kids to quit school.
This sign makes perfect sense! Can’t you understand it? What they were actually trying to say was “Neighborhood Design Center”. However, their approach of alternating the letters of the three words didn’t exactly turn out the way they imagined.
2. Trusting the “multilingual” ad designer
We’ve been trying for at least 10 minutes to figure out what kind of business this is, but we still have no idea. Is it a hair salon, a modeling club, or a translator service? Our best guess is that it’s a hair salon and the translation application they used simply didn’t connect properly.
3. Poor URL choice
The Fagas Strap company definitely dropped the ball on this one. They needed to decide on a new domain name for their website and this is what they came up with. Once you get rid of the capitalization and spaces between the words Fagas and Straps, it becomes something slightly more offensive.
4. Unfortunate graphic placement
They could have painted the graphic of the woman exercising literally anywhere else on the bus. Instead, they chose to place it exactly where the handles line up with the woman’s, well, check out the photo. You’ll see what we mean.
5. Measurement lines on an opaque bottle
Adding measurement lines to water bottles is always a good idea. That is if the bottles are see-through. When the bottle is a solid opaque color, it sort of defeats the purpose.
6. Being gay was a sin they said
There’s something a little off about this artist’s representation of two of every animal being loaded onto Noah’s Ark. The traditional idea of the religious story is that each animal pair includes one male and one female, but both of the lions in this image are boys.
There’s the right way of doing things, and then there’s the wrong way of doing things. But how can a solution be wrong when it’s faster? This is how.
Every day, we go through small internal battles. We argue with ourselves over doing things right or doing things fast. The 40 people ahead all opted to do things fast. And the consequences came even faster as a result!
It’s as good as new.
If you look closely, you’ll be able to see that some of the column uses new wood. Thanks to this restoration, the roof that the column’s holding up should stay in place for weeks. Warning: Do not play Jenga with this!
For once, the sockets are making the right expression
Drilling metal screws into the plugs? What could possibly go wrong? The weird thing about this one is that it actually took some effort to do something so stupid.
Calm down, there’s some plastic tape. No one could possibly walk over the gap with that tape in place. Right?
Sometimes when your health is out of balance you can’t see yourself clearly. When people struggle with something physical, like weight, they can’t always see how beautiful they really are. These people didn’t even realize how attractive they were until they worked on themselves, but now they can celebrate their appearances every day.
These 30 people have powerful stories, and their transformations are absolutely amazing. Their messages are so inspiring.
“I lost 100 lbs, and I feel great.”
“It took me 2 years and 3 months to get in shape. It sounds like a lot of time, but it was well worth it.”
“I made true friends, and they helped me to have a more active lifestyle. That’s how I managed to lose weight. Now I can communicate with any person.”
“The difference between these 2 photos is 4 years. And I was even used to not enjoying what I looked like.”
“Me when I was 19 and 21.”
“I was depressed because of the way I looked. I didn’t even want to live. But I decided that I was able to change everything, so I started losing weight… I feel great, and I’m enjoying my life!”
“I didn’t use to be really fat. I had a hard time choosing the right hairstyle.”
“I used to weigh 60 lb, now I weigh 90, and I keep working on my body.”
“3 years between these photos. Some people don’t believe that it’s me.”
“So much has changed in 3 years! Before, I didn’t get out much. I was very shy. Now we live in a time when changing your appearance is very easy.”
“Just 4 years, and this is what I’ve become (I’m on the right).”
“I started reading all the time. I read a lot. This is how I started changing psychologically and emotionally… This is how I found the answer for me.”
“I felt overwhelmed, but I decided to take one day at a time. I didn’t know if I would live or die. I just knew that I had to focus on the day I was living. I had a ‘lose weight or die trying’ mentality.”
“I knew I owed it to my son to try to break the family tree of obesity. There are so many compromises to being an obese parent: I was simply forfeiting the ability to participate in so many wonderful moments.”
Not all of us are fashion experts. This is why we try to experiment and mix and match clothes to see if we can look more stylish. Unfortunately, the more we try to look more fashionable, the more we end up failing. The risky fashion choice we make often leaves us looking ridiculous and weird in other people’s eyes.
Fortunately, fashion disasters aren’t always bad. In fact, they can be transformed into little entertainment and also a warning for others to never try to copy them.
Here are the most cringe-worthy fashion fails you need to see this year:
1. Brown logo on white shoes
In theory, putting a brown logo on a white background will make a product look classy. In reality, a brown logo on white shoes just looks like bird poo from afar.
2. A not-so-comfortable evening dress
This is probably one of the most uncomfortable dresses you’ll see. I don’t think you’ll have a great time wearing this to a party or anywhere.
3. When you accidentally stepped on something
This is actually a good pair of shoes if you always walk on mud or dirt. You won’t have to worry about cleaning your shoes. Plus, its design can work as camouflage for when you accidentally stepped on your dog’s poo.
Will you give up or will you never give up? Well, it’s a good shirt to wear if you still can’t decide. At least, you’re letting other people know where you stand.
