If you’ve got a message you want to send in your new advertisement, get a graphic designer in. If you want to get a new product out there, you find a product designer. Simple… Or so you would think.
Sadly, not every idea goes to plan. Sure, they still look nice, and I’m sure the intentions were pure, but my word did they go wrong down the line.
But one man’s awful designs can be the whole internet’s treat. And my word, some of these are a treat to behold. I don’t even know what they were thinking about half of these!
Below is a list of some of the greatest design fails you will see all week. Make sure you think twice
1. Lovely intentions, but 2 out of 3 of these ‘clicks’ will not save your life.
2. AAA batteries x3 in the most frustrating way possible.
3. This awful lava lamp advert
4. Shopping for COCk
5. DIE for success
6. …Except for Allison
7. A staircase for people who like to live dangerously.
8. You Are Alone!
9. Maybe you should reintroduce artificial dyes.
10. Practice your kills
11. Dr Three-Hands

13. A company slogan we can all live by

17. This is a book… A printed book.
18. The most terrifying poster in town!

28. The most inappropriate condom.
29. That’s one way to sell a paper
I actually went to university in Falmouth in Cornwall and Truro was our closest city… Believe me, this wasn’t a one-off, the Truro Daily News was a peculiar newspaper.

31. I 💖
