Design Failures That Could Use Some Work

Designing stuff is hard, and it's conducive to all kinds of design fails. If it's a sign, you have to check for embarrassing spelling mistakes. If it's a building, you have to make sure there aren't any pipes going straight through any staircases. People are pretty good at their jobs in general, but there are still a lot of impressively unprofessional "not my job" moments.

Dumb Design Fails that were Someone's One Job

If you've felt like you've done a bad job with something before, don't feel bad, cause someone has most likely done worse. You probably didn't include an inconspicuous "shart" in a sign, and you probably haven't buried a fire hydrant in cement. There are too many impressively unprofessional "not my job" moments and sloppy design fails out there to even compete.

Cringey Toilets That Are Cursed To Oblivion

Cursed toilets have a knack for making our insides squirm. Usually, one doesn't see a picture of a toilet set up so that it's facing a lecture hall. Usually, one doesn't see a toilet through the thin slit window frame of a wooden door. Usually, one doesn't see a toilet installed within some sort of tiled armchair contraption. But here we are.

Design Fail Gives Guy's Game Crazy Amounts of Dislikes

To be clear, the gameplay itself didn't warrant all the dislikes, but a very small design fail gave this game developer a big shock. It should provide at least a little peace of mind to find out that you didn't create something as universally hated as you thought. For some game related humor, here are some gaming memes.
