I’m sure all of us are creative in some way, or know a creative person through our walks of life. I’ve been lucky enough to be friends with quite a few designers and artists, and one thing that shows just how good they are at their jobs is the fact that they make it look so easy. Watching an accomplished musician lay down a perfect melody or a talented graphic designer produce a clever logo makes you think anybody could do what they do.
The truth is, not everyone can; but that doesn’t stop people from trying. These designers probably had the right idea and the right intentions in mind, but they came up woefully short when it came to the execution. These design fails are so baffling, you’ll be wondering if they went through with this without stopping to think: what if there’s something I’m not thinking about?
1. Great wheelchair access
2. I have no idea what this sign is meant to be warning me about
3. One of the many reasons we don’t let kids on construction sites anymore
4. Before you ask: yes, that’s the design of the sink
5. Don’t you hate it when you’re trying to have a nice colon cleanse and you accidentally take the sleeping pills instead?
