Satisfying Moments Of Alignment For The World's Perfectionists

There's something about coming across a well placed object, or perfectly parked car that can make you stop in your tracks to exercise some appreciation over the aesthetically pleasing nature of the situation. The world's a messy place. More often than not, something's going wrong. So, when things just line up nice and perfectly, it feels pretty dang nice.

Design Failures That Could Have Been Avoided

Graphic design, font choice and building decisions seem simple enough in our heads, but they come with pitfalls in practice. Design failures are all around us. One slip of the font can turn a fortress into a fartress or a public area into a pubic one. The architects of these design failures could use a little bit of blame. Of course, for the rest of us they just make life more fun and interesting.

Design Fails That Put Things In Perspective

Human beings are problem solvers. But sometimes when we're designing a solution for one thing, our design failure results in a brand new problem. With something as simple as word placement or overzealous design, a sign for a window company can turn into a 40 foot long wiener. Anyway, some design fails deserve some blame.

"Not My Job" Moments and Unprofessional Design Choices

Our world is filled to the brim with unprofessional "not my job" moments. While they may be inconvenient to the users themselves, it is pretty funny to see a "storp" sign. And as much as we all want to get away with doing as little work as possible, some "not my job" moments and design fails are just too noticeable to not become a thing.

Design Fails That Could've Used A Second Set of Eyes

Designing things is hard. And it's not just a matter of spelling something correctly so that it doesn't accidentally say something filthy. Sometimes design fails exhibit really poor craftsmanship, horrible toilet placement or just a complete lack of sense. Whether it wields some kind of irony or is just sort of gross, design failures remind us daily that things can be worse.

Dumb Design Failures That Somehow Got Through

It's hard to design something completely without getting in the weeds a little, but some design failures deserve some blame. Maybe it's creating an impossible maze on the back of a cereal box. Maybe it's drapes that look like they were repurposed from a murder scene. There are thousands of ways to mess up, and these design failures could have used a second look.

Aggressively Rude And Belligerent Designs

Every now and again we cross paths with a product that's so structurally vile, so aggressively inconsiderate to the space it occupies, that it can leave us speechless. It almost feels like whoever was responsible for designing the product was nothing short of an evil mastermind, determined to bring more stress into people's lives by plaguing the world with terribly rude designs.

Inconvenient, Weird and Stupid Interior Design

Building a house is hard. Or at least it seems like it when you see all the "not my job" moments of dubious professionalism that go into building anything. People really have a knack for putting toilets in inconvenient places. Who knows, maybe it's nice to have a toilet at the top of the stairs? It becomes a place to survey your domain. Either way, there's no project that goes on without a few moments of professional ineptitude.

Stupid Design Failures That Deserve Criticism

No matter how confident you are, it's always a good idea to get a second eyes on a project. "Hey, what's with this stairway to nowhere" they might say. Or "did you realize that when your van door slides open it condenses Butter Salesman into Butt Man." There are more stupid design failures out there than you could shake a stick at, and even that stick might have some fatal flaws. These design failures deserve some blame.

Design Fails That Could Have Used a Second Look

For some reason it's always the least detail-oriented who are in charge of details. Maybe it's a lax attitude toward perfection that leads to some "not my job" failures of professionalism. Maybe it's just overconfidence that results in design failures that deserve some blame. Whatever the reason, it sure does not look good to have a big sign that reads "We will eat your family."

Bad, Weird and Unique Home Design Choices

Purple shag carpeting and kitchen toilets aren't exactly in vogue, so it makes one wonder what kind of person would make a point to have a home that looks like the inside of Katt Williams' brain. Evidently there are enough people who feel comfortable living inside of 70s style carpeted geometry salad. Some home listings are undeniable, like this house listing featuring sasquatch

Bad Choices That Resulted In Undeniable Fails

It's like a real life version of The Sims. There's no denying it; these were some bad choices that resulted in ultimate failure. Life's all about those attempts, and if you're aware enough, you learn from the mistakes that can result from said attempts. We're hoping that the masterminds behind these bad choices were able to reflect, and learn from their handful of mistakes.

Unprofessional "Not My Job" Moments Of Incompetence

Half of us couldn't bothered to be better at their jobs, and the other half have been bothered so much about it that we do a bad job out of spite. These "not my job" moments of professional ineptitude are good reminders that nothing's for sure in this crazy world. Toilets get installed backwards and road signs get misspelled. Anything goes when it comes to unprofessional moments of failure.

Design Failures That Could Use Some Rethinking

Everyone wants to leave work early, but sometimes it takes a few design fails to get there. Ill conceived products, idiotic font choices, and some less-than-mastery of photoshop get people into some weird situations. Adding to that, the pesky thing with reality is that sometimes things don't fit where you want them to. Enough "not my job" moments of failure have proven that.
