These are some of the most upvoted submissions on the subreddit ‘Crappy design’. The community did a fine job by selecting some of the most crappy product designs we have ever seen.
1. Crappy designed pan
It’s obvious that no one from the company ever took this beauty for a spin. But as long as it has usage marks, the real question is how did the owner do it? Did he or she just hold it still all along the way?
2. Crappy stair carpet choice
Believe it or not, someone had the brilliant idea to choose this carpet for the stairs. They probably play the Life game on hard just for fun.
3. Crappy poster design
Probably the person who designed this poster did not have the chance to enjoy the Erasmus ‘life-changing experience’. If you want to avoid becoming this person, apply for an Erasmus scholarship ASAP!
4. Crappy bus advertisment
We constantly complain about how this generation has lost interest in school. If we don’t clarify the message, they’ll just end up doing silly stuff, like quitting school.
5. Crappy direction sign
So you just had an accident and your friend drove you to the hospital. Now let’s do the game of guessing – where should you go to reach room 113, to the right or to the left? Sure you have plenty of time to think about it, there’s no emergency.
6. Crappy drain design
We heard about the mythical drain that actually collects water. But no one has ever seen one. We gave up searching for it long time ago.
7. Crappy banner design
Protesting is serious stuff. People usually take to the streets their strongest messages. The most efficient way to transmit a message is to think about the core idea and send it out straight away, without any trace of doubt.
8. Crappy window design.
Allegedly, a company decided to renovate its offices and someone got stuck with this lovely room. Maybe natural light does not help you increase your productivity. Who knows where the renovators got the brilliant idea.
9. Crappy flyer design
If you look really careful, you can see they advertise a workshop on migration related legal issues. But what is the message and why would I be interested. Maybe they want us to be so enraged that we would attend it just to bash them for the crappy flyer.
10. Crappy pie chart design
We said pie chart, but this example hardly qualifies as one. In fact, we wonder if the person who designed it actually went to high-school. Or is there some kind of sorcery happening at their school like playing with the time machine?
11. Crappy vending machine design
The company who designed this knows far too well that vending machines are the first choice when you want an exquisite slow meal. You need to take your time to assess the rich menu and combine your main course with an adequate side dish. Actually, the legend is that someone starved to death next to this machine while trying to select a simple chocolate bar.
12. Crappy yoghourt bottle design
To be fair, this is not crappy design. It does the job well, the bottle has the classical shape and it’s easy to grab. But my gods, how misleading this is! Or maybe this yoghourt does an excellent job as a window cleaner too. Give it a try and let us know!
13. Crappy gun design
Actually, it is kind of difficult to find another position for the pressure gauge on an air-gun. Even if owners of air-guns should know how much pressure they need and always check it when the gun is not loaded, we can’t stop stop thinking that some are careless enough to point the gun to their heads.
14. Crappy poster design
People argue that we are not dealing with a crappy design here so much as with brutal sincerity.
15. Crappy business sign design
This thing is wrong an every level. Like any other idea would have been better. It is the most upvoted worst design on the subreddit.
