Being a designer is hard. There are a lot of things that you need to consider when you are working, and sometimes you forget about one or two of those things. Most of the times you notice the mistake and fix it before sending it to your boss, but there are other times (the ones that interest us) when you don't realize how bad your design is and your boss doesn't realize either and everything's a mess. We gathered fifty photos of fifty times designers had only one job and failed, take a look at them. If you are a designer, I hope this works as a warning. If you are just a regular human being, rejoice.


THE LION KING

reddit

They say that being gay is a sin, but apparently not for lions. The question is… How do we still have lions on earth if on Noah's Ark there were two male? Mystery.

PREGNANCY TEST

reddit

This must be a very doubtful couple. There's no way you are you going to need to be sure if she is like eight months pregnant, Is she expecting another one?

LOST IN TRANSLATION

reddit

Never ever trust a designer when it comes to translations. Look what they did to these poor people. They probably never noticed it, and I'm not going to be the one that tells them.

CYBORG BABY

reddit

This looks like an advertisement of the Terminator movie prequel. The prequel before the prequel. The cyborg babies are full of lights but they both look really happy and cute!

SUIT YOURSELF

reddit

Have you seen that emoji that has his hand in the chin? Well, that was my actual face when I first saw this. It is unforgivable. I hope she hasn't obey the floating letters.

THIS BATHROOM

reddit

This bathroom takes Big Brother to a whole new level, you are not only watched by surveillance cameras, you are also being controlled by the guy next to you at the bathroom.

SLOW

reddit

There's nothing worse in this world than slow children at play. Luckily in this place you can hunt them with shotguns. I wanted to use my bazooka, but rules are rules.

HANNIBAL’S WEDDING

reddit

Finally a couple that considers all the different factors. I don't like chicken, I don't like beef, and I definitely don't like kids, but only when they are alive and not in my plate.

FRIENDLY REMINDER

reddit

Thanks for that, kids. I'm so happy you took the time to make a sign to remind me that no one cares about me, you are so sweet. And also go to hell.

MORE CANIBALS

reddit

How many members are in that family? I'm sure Jessica's out of family members already and she is feeding us with other random people. That's not cool, Jessica, I trusted you.

ARTISTIC KIDS

reddit

"Artistic Kid Dies" sounds like a title in my local news. You don't hear about that a lot, because artistic kids are usually not exposed to any danger. Except maybe eating crayon.

TIE

reddit

How do we make clear that they are a man and a woman? We can't show his fingers to prove that he doesn't have his nails polished… Mmmhh.. I got it!

DENTIST

reddit

Dentists are already too scary, they don't need a creepy banner like this, that looks like the dentist is saying "Your dental problems can't be solved" and pulling a trigger.

HIRING

reddit

Wait, can you clarify something for me? It's a silly question… Are you hiring? These people must have interviewed too many stupid people that doesn't fit the position and they are now desperate.

GIANT WATCH

reddit

How big is that watch that you need your entire finger to press the button? Or worse: How small your hand must be to press that button? Stop with unrealistic body expectations!

WOULD YOU?

reddit

If you were in a car, would you know what accident to do? Oh yes, I've been dreaming about that all my life, I know exactly what accident I would do.

FIRST COMES

reddit

Everything ok with love, but what the hell is Morriage? and why would you ever want a Boby in your life? I don't know, this doesn't sound good at all.

LET IT SNOW

reddit

Oh, I love Christmas. I love those carefully made decorations in every house. Except this one. I'm sure this person intended well, but this is a little insulting for women.

AARIS

reddit

If only the word Paris had an A! Or even an I. Aaris is a great place, though. It has a tower similar to the Eiffel Tower and it's probably much cheaper than Paris.

GRAPHIC DESIGN BASICS

reddit

You know what they say: Never judge a book by its cover. Well, forget about that crap. In this case, judge it. Judge it badly. I hope this is ironic, but I don't think so.

£25 GLASSES

reddit

Yeah, your £25 don't look like £25 glasses, but your model looks a little bit funny. Next time charge a little bit more for your glasses and spend it on good signs.

HEALTHH

reddit

Health is a word that starts and end with the same letter. Weights are a thing that starts and ends in the same way. Doesn't this say something to you, dear not-so-graphic designer?

MUSIC CONNECTING PEOPLE

reddit

Wait, I see something weird here… that boy and that girl look like they are hangING OUT WHILE LISTENING TO THE BEST MUSIC THEY COULD FIND AND DANCING TO IT. Or not.

CROSSROADS

reddit

Wait, I don't get it, are you taking me to the desktop website or not? See? I told you, we should had gone to Aaris. They told me that is beautiful there, with a tower and all.

SCISSORS

reddit

If only I had some scissors to cut the cable tie! I guess I will die without scissors. Thank you very much, Amefa Ltd, all I wanted was some scissors. Thank you very much.

BETTER?

reddit

Is this thing better than cream cheese? NO! This is what happens when you don't have confidence enough in your own product. Don't ever let someone tells you that you are not better than cream cheese, kiddo.

TOMATO KETCHUP

reddit

First of all, those translations are mostly wrong. Second of all, they are completely unnecessary for practical reasons. Mainly because almost everyone in the world can recognize tomato ketchup, especially Heinz.

WHAT TIME IS IT?

reddit

If you forget about the numbers and only pay attention to the hour and minute hands you won't have any problem, don't be so demanding, it is what it is.

HEAL THY BURGERS

reddit

Ok, Now we are talking, Bible. This is actually a great and useful miracle. Heal my burgers, those burgers, heal everyone's burgers, we've been expecting this miracle for centuries. Halleluyah!

CALM DOWN

reddit

When you are a frequent traveller flights are a daily thing, but this woman looks very calm considering that from that angle her plane should be floating on Hudson River.

BEAUTY

reddit

The worst thing about this is that this is not a bootleg doll: this is the official one. If Beauty looks like this I can't even imagine how the Beast must look like.

SOUFEEL

reddit

Let's skip the part when we say that this thing is horrible. Why didn't they use the actual selfie on the bracelet? It is made by a voyeur that doesn't even know who that people is?

THUMBS UP FOR JESUS

reddit

-Hey boss, we are full of ceramic thumbs that we couldn't sell on Halloween, what shall we do?

- I know what we should do. Let's paint them and turn into Baby Jesus!

NOT REALLY

reddit

Even if Stressed spelled backwards was dessert (Spoiler: It is not) Why would you want to relate stress with your desserts brand? You should learn how to spell before trying to make any pun.

EVERY DAY

reddit

  • We need a name easy to be recognized and with a catchy acronym for our association.
  • I got it: Every Day in Middle Georgia is Armed Forces Appreciation Day.
  • The EDIMGIAFAD. Brilliant!

TWO OPTIONS

reddit

You can read this as "I Teach. What's your superpower?" or as "I teach what's your superpower", the second one can be really accurate if you are Professor Charles Xavier.

THIS CLOCK

reddit

This is a pretty cool corporate gift. What no one thought is the fact that there are more minutes than hours, which means that the locals (Ohio State Buckeyes) are almost always losing.

A LOAD THING

reddit

It took me hours to understand this one. I first thought that it was a pun, something about a load, maybe about laundry. And then, I saw it: It says bad.

THE HUNGER GAMES

reddit

This sign that someone found at a school takes a few readings to be understood. If that happens (especially at a school) that means that it is a crappy sign, Miss Cindy.

PASADENA POOL FLOAT

twitter

I read somewhere that this could had been solved with a focus group with at least a woman on it. But I think you don't have to be a woman to know what that looks like, Was it on purpose?

UNCOMFORTABLE

reddit

I would be desperate if I use this bathroom, because you need to pay close attention to discover the toilet paper. And it is like two blocks away from the toilet, this is almost criminal, especially when you think that is a handicap bathroom.

CAN YOU HELP?

reddit

Can you help Rocco get home? Mmh.. Actually… I can't. Sometimes you need to teach your children that there's not always a way out. It is hard, but completely necessary.

DOOR

reddit

If only there was a better method to look at who is knocking at my door I would be so happy. Oh wait, there's actually a better method. It's called GIANT WINDOW.

SOLAR POWER

reddit

There's no better idea than putting a solar powered parking machine in a closed underground parking. I wonder if that even works, there must be a lot of people getting free parking tickets.

VENT

reddit

Did you forget to put the reglementary vent in the bathroom you just designed? Don't worry, no one will notice if you just screw the grille to the wall, trust me.

SILENT HILL

reddit

This sign looks like meant to the people of Silent Hill but apparently not. I don't know what it wants to say, Don't lean backwards on the stairs or you are going to lose your arms?

PHONE NUMBER

reddit

This thing is not for people with anxiety like myself. Just put a damn blank space and I'll write down the number, you stupid designer! This will take me forever.

BOXER BRIEF

reddit

Women are not the only ones that have to suffer from impossible body standards. Men suffer from that too. I guess the trend is having three legs, how do you workout to get that?

FIRE EXTINGUISHER

reddit

Have you ever heard that saying that goes "Fight fire with fire"? Well, this designer has. And he took it very seriously. I don't think that's the way a fire extinguisher works, but what do I know?

KITTEN

reddit

These kitten socks remind me of that hoax that went viral like a decade ago about an University that supposedly created kittens on jars. Those kittens looked exactly like this.
