The Bad

Some of these designs hurt my head.  I don’t understand how designers don’t see the bigger picture or get another’s opinion before they send their designs out into the world.  The importance of a design representing your company is vast. These designs have a highly inappropriate look that is not seen at first glance.  Therefore, you need to go through many revisions and critiques. You may think that sitting in class listening to your peers give you critiques may be a waste of time or take their opinions to heart.  A designer needs to have another set of eyes to look at their design, because staring at it for hours on end can blind you from the greater picture.  So, next time you sit in class critique being silent or even skipping class for that matter, think again.  Your peers have your best interest in mind and will only help you avoid situations like seen above.

    I love these huge design blunders. They’re so bad, they’re good! This is exactly why we have critiques and why “if you see something, say something”, doesn’t just apply to public transit. Creating a design like one of these and no one pointing out the flaws to me before it’s published, is one of my worst career nightmares.

    This is so true! I feel like I am constantly finding weird design flaws and mishaps no matter where I am. Its insane how no one caught them before it was put out into public. Good use of visuals, blog would not have been the same without.

    exactly correct, some of the logos and images really kill the morale of people. i can advise designers to look for suggestions and critiques from friends before they publish. this will prevent the blunders seen

    Although I find these very amusing. I ask myself the question. What happened to critiques? I think that is the most important stage of the design process. People look at your designs from a different viewpoint.
