List Rules Vote up the designs that fail to make it work.

The phrase "think before you speak" just as easily could be "think before you design." Thanks to the vigilant observers of Reddit's r/CrappyDesign, the world now knows of all the terrible design flaws out there ruining retinas every day. Despite the claim that capitalism spurs innovation, these awful design flaws suggest the opposite. A few design mishaps have (thankfully) gone the way of unfortunate ad placements, meaning they simply found themselves in the wrong position at the wrong time. But some of the more uncomfortable design flaws make you wonder who exactly green lit these products, graphics, and designs; like how did multiple countries nearly endorse a barcode to be the flag for the European Union?

Perusing the worst design failures of all time gets to feel a little disheartening when you think about all the people who let this go unnoticed. But with every design failure out there, while some poor soul probably lost a job, you, dear viewer, get a dose of comedy more valuable than whatever was being sold.
