Getting the right design is never an easy job. There are so many things you have to consider, like size, color, and materials. You also have to consider if your design can actually do what it’s supposed to do.
Despite the complexity and challenges that come with designing things, a lot of people still can’t stop themselves from creating and fixing things. Those same people end up failing miserably.
There’s a reason why not all of us are designers and these 75 photos of epic design fails prove that.
This is probably one of the most infuriating pans you’ll see. Instead of being able to cook right away, you’d need to try a dozen tricks just to get that sticker off.
2. Misleading map
At first glance, you’d think that there’s nothing wrong with this map. Upon taking a closer look, however, you’ll find countries in all the wrong places. You’d even find two regions named Africa there. It’s like whoever made this wasn’t sure of its exact location so he just picked both.
3. The dangerous bed post
A bed is supposed to make you feel calm and relaxed. This bed, on the other hand, feels like it’s going to kill you if you make a wrong move in your sleep.
4. The unwanted benefit
A lot of people are switching to alkaline water for its long list of health benefits. After reading this ad, they’d probably change their minds.
5. Such small hands
Based on the indicated measurements, that Wi-Fi adapter is impressively small. What’s more impressive, however, is the size of that hand. It must be a really tiny hand.
6. Rewards of hypnotherapy
If these are the rewards of hypnotherapy, I don’t think anyone would be willing to try it out. Instead of getting better, you’ll end up with tons of other health issues.
7. Yay or nay?
For anyone wondering what design this is, it’s yellow marble. It’s a good choice if you don’t want urine stains to be too visible. It’s also an excellent choice if you want your toilet to look completely covered with piss.
8. Got to protect the wires
You got to give whoever did this an A for effort and creativity. For functionality, however, it’s a hard fail. That tiny umbrella won’t be able to protect those wires in case of rain.
9. The double stairs
The design of these stairs stirs up so many questions. Who would walk in that little bit of stairs? Why not just seal it off? What if you accidentally fall into that glass corner? It’s a total nightmare.
10. Better read carefully
Is it “Rapeland” or “Ropeland”? If the wrong spelling is unintentional, then why is the line in the letter “o” coming at the bottom and not the top? Clearly, something is wrong there.
Good job on using a lock to keep your door secure. Just pray that whoever decides to rob the house doesn’t have a screwdriver with him.
12. What happens if you click on it?
This is probably one of the most exciting postcards you’ll receive. It comes with a link to a video.
13. That’s just sad
This ball pit claims to come with 25 balls. If you count the balls on the picture, you’ll find that there’s only 22 and that’s just really sad.
14. Just get a real mug.
Whoever is drinking from that mug must be having a really bad time. There’s a good chance he’ll end up pouring his hot drink on his face.
15. What’s the message?
This sounds like something someone on drugs would say. It makes no sense with or without the crossed-out word.
16. Weird Easter candies
Those candies don’t look like eggs and they don’t even look like candy. They look more like bunny poop.
17. Take this sign as a warning.
This is probably the last place you’d want to take your kids to. This fitness club’s sign looks a bit sadistic and it’s scary.
18. A scary high chair
Just a quick look at this high chair can be enough to send any kid crying out for help. Honestly, it looks horrifying.
19. The sign for the dental clinic
This designer probably can’t decide between a tooth and a full mouth for the clinic’s sign. Good thing that both ideas relate to dentistry and orthodontics.
20. The nearly invisible jeans
These jeans don’t make any sense. What’s the point of wearing jeans if you’re going to look like you’re not wearing anything? It’s clearly a waste of money.
21. A trap
Using this laptop is like walking on a land mine. One wrong move and you’ll end up turning off your computer.
22. The throne
Although this toilet isn’t up to code, it looks quite dope. Each time you use it, you’ll certainly feel like a king. Of course, with those stairs, you should avoid using it when you’re drunk.
23. Trying to be inspirational
The boss was just trying to motivate his employees when he posted this in the break room. It would have been more effective if he knew what he was doing.
24. A good advice
Raising 20 children is definitely hard. It’s a’ good thing that signs, like this one, are around.
25. Honoring passover
While the father looks quite happy about what’s going on, the cat looks confused. I’m pretty sure we can all relate to the cat.
26. When someone wants a private urinal
This looks like a VIP urinal. Only the important people at work know that it exists.
27. It’s not what you think it is.
Those aren’t really stairs. Those are decorative waterfalls which can be quite slippery.
28. The bloody curtain
Those curtains look like they came from a crime scene. Good thing this visitor had a good sense of humor and didn’t find it disturbing.
29. No foot traffic allowed
The sign implies that you can only go through that way if you’re in a wheelchair. The “ramp”, on the other hand, implies that you need to be a highly-skilled wheelchair driver to safely go through it.
30. Just lazy
Whoever did this got minimalism wrong. This is just being lazy.
31. The pepper mill
Why would someone design a pepper mill like that? More importantly, why would someone put so much pepper on bread?
32. What is that?
The design of these sinks will make you feel uncomfortable. It looks like someone smeared poop all over it.
33. Someone’s too happy
Someone must have been too happy when designing this. The upper and lower mouths are quite painful to look at.
34. The impossible activity book
This is probably one of the toughest activity books you’ll ever see. Your child might end up with broken bones if you ask him to do these letters. Just take a look at “D” and “W”.
35. A literal copy
The painter did an excellent job of recreating the design. He even managed to include the watermark.
36. Trying to make it work
It didn’t matter if New York appeared “Nevv York”. What’s important is that it spells out “Love”.
37. Reality vs Expectation
Most adults would know how bad this toy is made. Kids, on the other hand, are more likely to accept it because it looks like it needs a lot of love.
38. This bowl
With all those holes, it doesn’t look like the plate is meant for eating. You would easily lose half of your meal if your food gets pushed to the side.
39. Wrong flag
It’s hard to trust a brand like this. It’s like they are making you think that the product you’re buying is made within the country.
