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.

Ok- Ok

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.
