30 Bad Designs That Are Bound To Disappoint You

These designs will make you shake your head.

Designing is something very important. It is the main factor that is going to attract potential customers. Buildings, signboards, clothes, product packaging, service, it really can be anything. If you want it to grow, you have to make sure the design is right. How many times have you chosen a product to purchase from an online website only because you like how the product looks, even though there is a cheaper one that does the same job but looks ugly? Exactly! That is how much design matters. It’s that appeal that pulls you, not what’s inside.


In order to nail the design, the creator must have a highly creative mind that can think ahead of the current aesthetics and come up with something that is trending but also isn’t repetitive. It is not easy, and that is why designing jobs are one of the highest paying jobs out there. But that also doesn’t mean you are always bound to find the best designs all over the world. There are many businesses that don’t invest heavily in design and generate products that look absolutely crappy and ridiculous. No one would ever go near these items because they just don’t look right. I am pretty sure you must have seen such products at stores nearby as they are everywhere. Where it is good, there is bound to be bad.

You know there are a lot of products out there with terrible designs when there is an entire subreddit dedicated to such products. There’s a whole community on Reddit known as “Crappy Design” that serves only one purpose and that is to locate products with the worst ever designs from all over the world and share them with everyone. A cause to make everyone laugh is a cause we all appreciate. Crappy Design was founded back in 2011 and since then it has grown into a massive family of over 3.1 million members. With that huge a following, you know the content is bound to be good…I mean bad…you get the point.

We explored the subreddit and created a compilation of 3 bad designs that are bound to disappoint you. Scroll down below to shake your head.

How dumb do you have to be? I mean you have to give it to these bad designers for making us all laugh. At times things are just so bad you feel disappointed and then you start laughing at the lost cause. I lowkey do feel bad because they probably didn’t intend to ruin these designs but seriously, people need to understand this behavior is not okay. What will the aliens think of us when we present them with a banana sealed in a plastic bag? We have a lot to learn.
