One of the best parts about being a designer is being able to catch those moments where something doesn’t make sense, but it still made it from the drawing board to actual existence. Keeping things lighthearted this week, I decided to share some of my favorite design fails. I find that it serves as a reminder to laugh my way through my own experience, and to observe that others are just putting lego pieces together too.
So, in no particular order….
Road Hazards - A crew actually put this together. No questions were asked.
Dine In- I don’t know about you, but I’m hungry.
Home Sweet Home- Oddly enough, I have witnessed several home design fails, but this one takes the cake.
Going Up- Ya know……I’ll just take the stairs.
What’s Your Number- I will never return to this site ever again.
Motivation- I see what you tried to do, but it didn’t work.
Emotional- As much as I can relate, I can’t help but laugh.
In Case of Emergency- Well, the hydrant is safe.
What Time Is It- The designer meant well, I’m sure of it.
So, even though I have moments of doubting my design skills or the occasional imposter syndrome, there are other not-so-perfect designs actually in use around the world. The lesson is to laugh and learn.
