Designers often come up with brilliant ideas, however there are many who have failed miserably at their work and have created some of the most hilarious designs. From town planning disasters to interior planning fails, we have collected a list that will have you in tears of laughter.
This Was Made By Professionals
Can you believe that this sink was designed by professionals? They obviously did not account for the size of the faucet or the pressure of the water and ended up with a hilarious failure.
This is a quiz that is not going to accept anyone unless you are an overachiever. They have designed an impossible quiz that you cannot pass even if you answer all 18 questions correctly!
A Design That Is Quite Important
When you work in urban planning, you have to be careful with the objects you design since they are going to affect a lot of people. The person who designed the elevation of this sewer gave it a positive elevation instead of a negative one, rendering it completely useless.
The Shop Of Horror
When you are designing a shop for clothes, make sure there is enough room for the mannequins in the shop or else the owner will be forced to hang the mannequins like he has done here which, quite frankly, is horrifying.
If you are creating an animal-based tea maker, like this one here, make sure that the filter does not look like the platypus is on its menstrual cycle. It could make people swear off tea altogether.
A Stroke Of Genius
Bypassing security has never been easier and it’s all because of this epic design fail. The owner of the store must have lost out on thousands of dollars because of this security flaw.
Evolution & Adaptation
Evolution has taken a turn and whether it’s for better or worse is still unclear. However, it was definitely overlooked by this designer.
Parking Got Real
It is always amusing to see spelling errors in public. Take this sign for instance: instead of using the word exiting, the designer accidentally wrote existing and it has brought a whole new meaning to paying your parking fee.
Not For Navigational Uses
The designer of these pillows didn’t quite do enough research when coming up with this design. The directions are all wrong.
The Sacrifice That Was Needed
To prevent false alerts, this fire signal box was designed to handcuff the person who pulled the fire alarm. If the fire was real, the person would have to wait for his or her release. But what if the emergency services were not quick enough to take it off?
This building is so poorly designed that it can never be used! On the plus side, at least the automatic door works.
Stopping People From Entering
The door was designed very well, with its barbed wires and iron fence. However, the space that is left on the side is wide enough to let a car come in without any problems, rendering the door useless.
A Toy For Kids?
This toy can be folded in many different ways and is one of the action figures from the Marvel universe. However, we will let you decide whether it is suitable for kids.
Winnie The Pooh?
This is quite an alarming version of Winnie The Pooh and there are a lot of things wrong with it; mainly it’s the missing nose and the horrifying set of teeth it has been given.
The Stop Sign
“Santa I have been a good girl” and “Please Stop” are two sentences that do not go together. Imagine having to explain the meaning of this sign to kids?
Is There A Pattern?
The buttons on an elevator are often arranged in an increasing or decreasing order so that you do not have trouble finding the button to the floor that you want to go to. However, this designer was completely off his rocker when he put the buttons in this elevator.
The Missing Steps
There are many designers that like to combine different objects together. For instance, this designer decided to include a desk within the stairs. However, he did not account for the fact that there is a missing step which people could easily fall through.
The Heads Of Presidents
A lot of people believe that the Russian President has a large brain. Clearly this designer agrees and decided to integrate this belief into his/her work. Although, it’s not a good idea for a woman’s t-shirt design.
The Missing Continent
When you are creating a small globe, you may forget to include one of the tiny islands. However, how can you forget an entire continent?
Welcome To The World Of Euphemism
This is wrong on so many levels. While the pun may have been unintentional, this slogan hit the markets and ended up as quite an embarrassment for the company.
The Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco is a famous landmark. However, there is this huge design flaw that leaves no space for pedestrians because of the separator.
That Doesn’t Add Up
There are three heads and four pairs of legs. This doesn’t effectively add up unless two girls decided to merge their torso and heads into one.
While the State Department was trying to give the girl her proof of citizenship, they ended up making her look like an alien. Just look at the size of her head!
Placement Gone Wrong
When companies want to emphasize something, they often end up using stamp marks. However, this placement of the stamp mark should have been placed after the sentence was completed.
This supermarket is trying to sell children’s thighs! Don’t worry, it’s just a hilarious spelling error that should have said Chicken’s Thighs.
Campaigning On A Bus
This is exactly what happens when you do not plan your designs effectively. The face was put up on the windows of a bus but ended up being smushed.
A Ruined Night
These are two things that you really don’t want to take together. This is living life dangerously because if the one on the left one kicks in before the one on the right, you will have to change your sheets in the morning.
The Wrong Color
This texture is the wrong color and it makes it look like poop has been smeared all over the sink.
Nailing It Hard
Looking at the poster will make you wonder why there is a kid doing handyman work. It looks dangerous and the kid appears to be hammering a nail into wood with his leg just underneath it.
Genius Or Fail?
The design was either a stroke of genius or an unintentional mistake. The tail lights have been placed exactly over the eyes of the man and they light up every time the driver applies the brakes.
Protecting From Rain
The wires have been exposed to the harsh environement. However, the designer appears to have realized his mistake and put a little umbrella on top of it.
Together Till The End
The couple appear to be perfect together. Except for the fact that they seem to be hanging themselves.
Cinnabon With Sugar Glaze
While they are just innocent cinnabon earrings with a little sugar glaze on them, they look a bit strange. We will let you be the judge of them.
Braille For The Blind
While it was quite considerate of the designer to put up a sign for braille, it was the wrong place for it to be since blind children cannot actually see their reflections in the fun mirror.
You always require measurements on your shakers. However, if your shaker is not transparent, the measurements are just useless.
Imagination Gone Wild?
The designer wanted to put a safety pin on the sweater. However, because of the wool that was used, it came out to look like something else entirely.
This is quite an interesting prop to use when you are taking your dog for a walk. However, it also appears to look like you are shooting your dog in the head!
Gnome Salt Shakers
At first glance this is quite a cute salt shaker. However, when you turn it around to where the holes are, it is an entirely different story. This is just plain creepy.
When you are arranging a list, it makes it easy to navigate if you organise it alphabetically. However, this is not the case for these floor numbers and the designer of this list should have realized the mistake.
This is a sign that prohibits the walking of dogs in the park. However, it appears to be something else entirely which is just really disturbing.
So Many Questions
This van belongs to Rainbow Cleaners and the sign was printed on the side of the van. However, with the door slided to the side, it looks to be a van of a pervert.
Fitting In The Seats
It is quite important to double-check your work before you hand it in. This guy put all the seats in the bus without checking if there was enough legroom for all of them first.
Not The Guy We Hired
When this company hired the guy, they did not imagine this would be happening when they put the design on the box. The corners seemed to have changed the face completely.
Tumors Have Nowhere To Hide?
Why is the sign calling the little child a tumor? The designer should have chosen his words carefully or should have gone with a different picture.
Looks Like Juice
At first glance, it looks to be bottles filled with juice. However, as it turns out, it’s a bunch of bottles of floor cleaner. If anyone drank from the bottle without reading the label, they would be sick all day.
When you want to show percentages in a pie format, you have to carefully calculate everything and display them appropriately There are two things wrong with this picture; the percentages don’t add up and the representation is wrong.
Darth Vader was always dressed in black and his sidekick stormtroopers were white. By that logic, this picture should not be in a children’s coloring book if you want things to be accurate.
Not everything in the world needs a mascot, even if they are quite fun. For instance, this medicine for diarrhea and abdominal pain does not require the mascot of an animated poop.
The small lock on the windows is not going to help if you want to completely secure them. You might as well tie a thread to secure the windows better.
Come On Man!
You do not want to be the parent who approved the making of this ad. The placement for the cremation center is not appreciated and neither is the caption on the picture.
Everything Looks So Delicious
Choosing what to eat in this restaurant will be a tough decision since you cannot read anything off the menu. We are worried how the restaurant is making profits.
Use Stairs In Case Of Fires
In case of a fire, it is always advised to use the stairs and not the elevators. However, what use are stairs if they lead to a dead end?
Vending Machine Braille For The Blind
You want to cater to all people in your building and that includes the blind too. However, how will the blind read the braille language if it is behind the vending machine glass?
Spain’s New Shirt
The shirts that Spain chose for their football season look like they got dirty last night when they were all eating Spaghetti Bolognese for dinner.
Every Shot Is In
Putting a hoop in your backyard is always a fun thing. However, if you put it right below a window, you are bound to get every ball in the basket.
Know Your Geography
This rug was on sale and it looks quite nice. However, some of the names are wrong; there is Canada, USA and China which are marked as continents.
Sign For A Private Catholic School
If you are advertising your school as attractive, affordable and accessible, please do not have a picture of a child next to it. It sends the wrong message.
You should not have this phone case if you are living in an area where guns are illegal. You would be stopped by the police. It is also quite dangerous as people might consider you armed and threatening.
Completely Different Meaning
If you read this sign from a little far away, you will see this sign in a completely different light. The designer was surely on some intoxicant when he came up with the idea for this sign.
Change Of Art
If you do not consider the heart as an alphabet, the sign says Change Fart which is completely hilarious.
No More Ice Cream For Me
The child appears to be cringing while she is eating the ice cream. The designer should have picked a happier child for the poster since this sign is just warding off customers.
Come To The Library
Reading until you are cross-eyed gets a whole new meaning with this poster on the library. The designer should have accounted for the corner in his design.
This is a confusing set of instructions. Does the designer want to say “Please don’t block the drive way” or “Please don’t drive, Block the way”?
The PT Cruiser With Poop Marks
Sure, you may want flames on the side of your car. However, these flames should not be brown since they make the car look like it has poop smears on it.
The temperature controls on this refrigerator are quite confusing since you would always end up pressing the cold button since it also has the minus sign on it. However, the correct button is the colder one.
There are three hands in this picture and only one man. The designer should have paid close attention to his edit.
Do Not Overthink
The footprints of the fox are going in the wrong direction, they are not matching the actual feet of the fox and the fox is walking on two feet. There are a lot of things that are wrong with this picture.
Not As Advertised
The end product is not the one that was advertised on the packet. The designer of the balloon should have kept that in mind while he was creating the paint on the design.
Not The Right Contrast
White does not work on a small font with a yellow background. It is impossible to read what is written and it will only hurt your eyes if you try.
Not For Moving In
The architect of this building did not take into consideration that people would be moving into this apartment. The column in the middle will make it hard to move anything big like couches or beds inside.
Not The Right Font
The font is quite bad since it makes the word click look like something else entirely; you do not want that on your coffee mug.
Mirror Mirror On The Wall
This mirror may look quite hilarious at first but it is not practical at all. The breaks in the mirror make it impossible to look at your entire reflection.
There is a space in this toilet paper holder that allows you to peep into the stall next to you. This is not something that you want in a bathroom, a place that you want absolute privacy.
That Time Of The Month
The red stains on the dress come pre-designed so that you can wear this dress and let the people around you assume that it is that time of the month for you.
Hong Kong Airport
We are still reeling from the fact that Hong Kong airport allowed for this poster to be publicly displayed for everyone to see.
And Then There Was Allison
If they wanted the name of Jesus above all, they should not have left space at the top of the board. Otherwise, the Allisons of the world will have their names above Jesus.
Not A Very Good Job
This is completely ironic and if this is the kind of job that they do, they should reconsider the business that they are in. “Window Signs Made Here”!
This sign on the portable charger can be read both ways, one way it says iSmart, while the other way it just says +Jews!.
Having unisex washrooms allow for both genders to use the same restroom. However, the sign on the door is looks really sexual and is something that should not be displayed in public.
“Don’t Open Till Christmas”
If you are tasked with designing kids’ pajamas, never go with the words “Don’t open until Christmas” on the hatch. That is just wrong.
Healing Of Burgers
While we all understand that they want to say Healthy Burgers, it can also be read as Heal Thy Burgers; we are just left wondering what kind of healing powers can heal burgers.
Kiss Your Password Goodbye
The people over at Microsoft have a sick sense of humor, putting in a notification like this to promote Windows Hello. It would give anyone a shock at first upon reading this notification.
Donate To Help End Children? NO!
Oh! Donate to help end the victimization of Florida’s Children. This sentence has been arranged in the wrong way.
The Missing G
The letter G in Grape is not really visible from far away which makes the flavor all kinds of wrong.
Semi-Transparent Frosted Glass
One restaurant had semi-transparent frosted glass doors on its bathroom stalls, making it quite easy to look at what people were doing inside.
So Cassie Moore Abused Children?
This seems like a confession. “The true story of a child abused by Cassie Moore”. The designer forgot to add the word written before by.
Small Speed Bump
Look at the cars jump on the road as they encounter the speed bump. This is clear evidence of the poor work by the roads and highways department.
Perhaps the owner asked the designer to add an emoji here but the designer just added the word emoji instead. Epic Fail.
Sit Without Back Or Without Bench?
If you wanted to sit on the edge of this park bench, which side would you prefer? The one without the back or the one without the bench?
The handle of the pan weighs more than the pan itself which makes it impossible to balance it on the stove. You just have to accept the fact that you have to cook with your pan crooked.
Should Have Gone With Another Model
These t-shirts were made to highlight the pride of the African American culture. However, the clothing line decided to go with a white model which is just completely wrong.
The Security Of The Hotel Room
These two latches are supposed to go together so that the door can open just a little. If they are far apart from each other, they are rendered useless.
While these diapers may keep your baby dry all night, the name is just wrong on so many levels. The founders of the company should have given more thought to the name before releasing the product.
Lighting The Head
This is a very offensive poster for all Indians out there. Indian women wear a red dot on their forehead but it does not mean that you can replace it with the brake light of a bus.
The Iron Door
This is yet another iron door that has been placed quite poorly. Like the other iron doors, this one also has a lot of space around it which makes the door useless.
Creating The Legend
They wanted to create a legend for their graph. However, they failed miserably when they did it all in the same color. There was no need for the legend in the first place.
Step By Step
This company wanted to show a process in three steps. However, they ended up using the same picture for all the steps which makes it confusing and fails its purpose.
We can forgive the spell check for Mannequin but they are supposed to be a part of Fine Art and not Fine Fart. They should not have used a large F for both the words.
The Disability Ramp
This is what happens when you do not do your job properly. You get featured among a list of design fails. The ramp for people in wheelchairs is only half complete, making it impossible to use.
What does this T-shirt want to say? We are having a headache just trying to understand the sentence written on it.
Haven’t We Done That Already?
This is what was displayed when the projector started up. However, that happens only when the projector starts projecting which means you must have already opened up the slider.
Cactus On Pen Holder
Imagine how many times you will hurt your fingers just by trying to reach over to your pen. You do not want a cactus in the way.
Another Confusing Sentence
We’re you’re not ’til not happy? What? Oh! We’re not happy ’til you’re not happy. It takes a minute to fully understand what they meant to say.
Only One Works
We understand what Royal Dutch Airline is trying to say but there is only one of these combinations which will actually save your life.
It’s A Coffee Shop
Before you start to let your imagination run wild, take a moment to understand that this is a coffee shop and the nut they are referring to is the coffee bean.
They Should Try To Understand Mathematics
If the pie chart and the numbers are to be believed, one-fourth of the operating budget goes towards financial aid but it seems to be hard to understand for the company.
The designer wanted to display the logo of Facebook but he too used a common letter for the words. It now seems like the sign says Fart rugs.
Wrong Placement For The Gear Shift
Car manufacturers should not have placed the gear knob in this position since the customers might mistake it for a volume control knob and accidentally change the gear.
Do You Live In 2003?
Even in 2020, this company seems to be content with using Wordart from Microsoft Office 2003. It’s about time they updated their software.
The Lid In Your Face
How many times have you opened up the lid of your bottle and then had it smash into your face? It can be quite uncomfortable to drink out of your bottle this way and it’s about time designers knew about it.
